  • Publication number: 20230023669
    Abstract: Logic may determine how to reduce bone segments. Logic may communicate one or more images to display with at least two bone segments. Logic may identify a first reduction point and a third point on a first bone segment and identify a second reduction point and a fourth point on the second bone segment. Logic may identify a fifth point on the first bone segment and a sixth point on the second bone segment. Logic may also divide the one or more images along a line or plane between the bone segments, bring the second reduction point and the associated image segment to the first reduction point, align the line or plane of the second bone segment with a line or plane of the first bone segment. Furthermore, logic may adjust alignment and record the movement of the image segments or compare original and final positions, to determine deformity parameters.

  • Patent number: 11561624
    Abstract: For mechanical keyboards or other input devices with individual mechanical key buttons, and particularly for compact keyboards used for laptops and other such devices, the size of the up and down arrow keys is usually half the size of most other keys on the keyboard. For example, each letter key on a physical keyboard is typically double the size of each of the up and down arrow keys on that same keyboard. Due to the smaller physical size of the up and down arrow keys, a modified mechanical configuration is used which results in a variation in the tactile feel of the various buttons of the keyboard for a user. The present disclosure discloses a capacitive touch enabled key with a corresponding tactile button to allow the key to represent multiple different inputs while also maintaining a same tactile response as other single input keys of the input device.

  • Patent number: 11539848
    Abstract: Real-time evaluation and enhancement of image quality prior to capturing an image of a document on a mobile device is provided. An image capture process is initiated on a mobile device during which a user of the mobile device prepares to capture the image of the document, utilizing hardware and software on the mobile device to measure and achieve optimal parameters for image capture. Feedback may be provided to a user of the mobile device to instruct the user on how to manually optimize certain parameters relating to image quality, such as the angle, motion and distance of the mobile device from the document. When the optimal parameters for image capture of the document are achieved, at least one image of the document is automatically captured by the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 11510367
    Abstract: Crop is carried into a feed opening of a harvester by two side drapers, two rear back sheets defining an opening between inner edges, a central feed draper and a roller with end flight portions and a central finger portion located above the feed draper. In this geometry, a bottom tangent to the flight portions has a position which is at a height below the rear edge of the side drapers. The roller axis of the feed roller is behind the rear edge of the side drapers and behind a common plane containing the back sheets. The inner guide roller of each of the first and second side drapers is located inwardly of the inner edge of the first back sheet and inwardly of an outer end of the end flight portion. A forward most tangent to the flight portions projects forward of or proud of the common back sheet plane.

  • Patent number: 11495928
    Abstract: A power adapter has a solenoid actuated retaining latch controlled by an electronic circuit that detects the presence or absence of AC mains voltage. When the assembled AC-DC adapter and plug assembly are removed from the wall, the latch detects removal and unlocks the plug assembly for easy removal without undue force required by the user. The circuit is designed for minimal power consumption, and the solenoid only consumes power when it is engaging or disengaging the latch.

  • Patent number: 11481750
    Abstract: In some examples, a system and method for pairing a payment object reader with a point-of-sale (POS) terminal is described herein. The payment object reader includes one or more light indicators configured to display information in an optical pattern of one or more colors, brightness, lightness, and intensities, wherein the light indicators display a first optical pattern representative of an operational status of the payment object reader in a first mode, and a second optical pattern representative of a pairing code in a second mode. A display control component, executed by a processor, is configured to control the light indicators in accordance with the pairing code to generate the second optical pattern, the second optical pattern when shared with the POS terminal enables pairing between the payment object reader and the POS terminal. When paired, the payment object reader allows the POS terminal to accept payments from a customer.

  • Patent number: 11429631
    Abstract: A system includes a processor configured to obtain a sequence of transformer rules. The transformer rules specify a set of data elements arranged according to a first structured data format, and structural changes to be performed on the data elements that convert the data elements into a second structured data format. The processor receives a block of data from a file arranged according to the first structured data format. The processor executes the sequence of transformer rules to perform the structural changes to the block of data. When executing the particular transformer rule, the processor applies an adapter associated with the transformer rule to modify values in the block of data specified by the particular transformer. The processor then provides for display or storage the block of data as converted into the second structured data format by the sequence of transformer rules.
