  • Patent number: 11094174
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to intelligent processing of broken or failed ATM transactions. In some embodiments, a computing platform may receive transaction data associated with a pending transaction of a user and generate hash information corresponding to the received transaction data. Thereafter, the computing platform may identify one or more alternate ATMs for completing the pending transaction and generate navigation information corresponding to the one or more alternate ATMs. Subsequently, the computing platform may send the generated hash information to the one or more alternate ATMs. By sending the hash information, the computing platform may cause the one or more alternate ATMs to await input from the user. In response to receiving a message indicating completion of the pending transaction at the one or more alternate ATMs, the computing platform may initiate clearing of a pending status of the pending transaction.

  • Patent number: 11054220
    Abstract: The presently disclosed subject matter includes a computerized method and system for determining miss-distance between platforms. The proposed method and system make use of an electro optic sensor (e.g. camera) mounted on one of the platforms for obtaining additional data which is used for improving the accuracy of positioning data obtained from conventional positioning devices. A navigation error is calculated where the relative position of the two platforms is converted to the camera reference frame. Once the navigation error is available, it can be used to correct a measured miss-distance.

  • Patent number: 11055593
    Abstract: Methods and systems disclosed herein may communicate information, such as alerts and notifications, to a cardholder via a color-changing transaction card. In particular, the cardholder may configure one or more thresholds that establish when a transaction card may change colors. For instance, a transaction card may change colors at, or while approaching, a first threshold. The transaction card may change colors at, or while approaching, a second threshold. When the cardholder's balance goes below the thresholds, the transaction card may revert back to the lower threshold color or the original color of the transaction card. Using the techniques described herein a financial institution may convey information to a cardholder in a way that does not require the cardholder to digital engage with the financial institution.

  • Patent number: 11055692
    Abstract: Application integration for contactless payments is described. In an example, a payment making platform can provide a transaction code to a payment processing platform. The transaction code can be presented at a point-of-sale of a transaction between a customer and a merchant associated with the payment processing platform. Upon detecting an interaction between the transaction code and a computing device of the customer, the payment making platform and the payment processing platform can exchange data to enable the customer to participate in the transaction via the computing device of the customer. In some examples, the payment making platform and the payment processing platform can process a contactless payment for the transaction by transferring funds associated with an account of the customer from the payment making platform to the payment processing platform for depositing into an account of the merchant.
