  • Patent number: 10127423
    Abstract: A method is provided for controlling a device for reading machine-readable code. A processor, configured by a strike application program monitors for a strike against a surface of the device. The strike is caused by a user either striking the device against a non-device surface or striking the surface of the device without necessarily engaging a button, a capacitive surface, or a resistive surface of the device. The strike comprising a detected strike is detected. An identifying characteristic of the detected strike is determined and it is determined if the detected strike having the identifying characteristic correlates to a particular scan-related operation of the device. The particular scan-related operation correlating to the detected strike having the identifying characteristic is executed in response to determining that the detected strike having the identifying characteristic correlates to a particular scan-related operation.

  • Patent number: 10073999
    Abstract: This patent specification describes operations of a mobile device with barcode-reading capabilities and an application and license server. A mobile device may include a barcode-reading application downloaded from an application server. The barcode-reading application may operate in a base mode or an enhanced mode. In the base mode, the barcode-reading application may establish a network connection to a licensing server to obtain a license code, and determine at least one operating permission authorized by the license code. In the enhanced mode, the barcode-reading application may implement at least one enhanced barcode-reading function which corresponds to the at least one operating permission authorized by the license code. For example, the enhanced barcode-reading function may be a function of decoding a barcode symbology that the decoder is restricted from decoding in the base mode of operation.

  • Patent number: 10068114
    Abstract: A method for implementing a host card emulation (HCE) service in a remote near field communication (NFC) device is provided. In the method, a first command application protocol data unit (APDU) is received at the remote NFC device from an NFC reader. A first response to the first command APDU is computed. A second command APDU from the NFC reader is predicted that is likely to follow receipt of the first command APDU from the NFC reader. A second response to the predicted second command APDU is computed. A third command APDU is received from the NFC reader. It is determined if the prediction of the second command APDU matches the third command APDU. If the second and third command APDUs match, then the computed second response is send directly to the NFC reader without having to traverse a NFC stack.

  • Patent number: 10062026
    Abstract: A radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder may include a substrate and a device. The substrate may be in communication with a controller and an antenna, and the antenna is arranged to receive radio frequency signals. A first side surface of the substrate may include a capacitor. The device may be detachably coupled with the substrate via a conductive member positioned between the structure and the capacitor of the substrate, and the conductive member may be within a desired proximity of the capacitor. The structure may be attached to an attachment surface so that an attachment strength between the structure and the attachment surface may be greater than a force required to decouple the structure from the substrate. When the structure is decoupled from the substrate, the conductive member separates from the capacitor, disabling the transponder.
