  • Patent number: 11258282
    Abstract: A method is disclosed. The method includes providing a door that selectively opens to allow access to a cavity and selectively closes to block access to the cavity, using a lock to selectively lock and unlock the door when the door is closed, and electrically charging a user device in the cavity when the door is closed and locked. The method also includes unlocking the door based on a first input provided by a first user, the first user removing the user device, electrically charging the user device in the cavity when the door is closed and locked after the first user returns the user device, and unlocking the door based on a second input provided by a second user, the second user removing the user device.

  • Publication number: 20210265843
    Abstract: A system is disclosed. The system has a housing, one or more compartments, each of the one or more compartments including a compartment door disposed at a first side of the housing, an operator door that selectively opens to allow access to a cavity that accesses the one or more compartments, and closes to block access to the one or more compartments, an electronic lock configured to selectively lock and unlock the operator door, the electronic lock including an operator interface, an ultraviolet lighting device disposed in at least one of the one or more compartments, computing memory having associated therewith code, and a processor communicatively coupled with the computing memory, configured to execute the code and to control the ultraviolet lighting device to selectively emit ultraviolet lighting in an interior of the at least one of the one or more compartments.

  • Patent number: 11031790
    Abstract: A system for verifying the identity of a user is disclosed. The system has a door that selectively opens to allow access to a cavity and selectively closes to block access to the cavity, a lock configured to selectively lock and unlock the door when the door is closed, a camera configured to image a user area adjacent to the door, computing memory having associated therewith code, and a processor communicatively coupled with the computing memory. The processor communicatively coupled with the computing memory is configured to execute the code and to control the camera to record a first image data of the user area that includes a plurality of first image sets recorded at a plurality of first times, store the first image data, and control the camera to record a second image data of the user area that includes a second image set recorded at a second time.

  • Patent number: 5046033
    Abstract: The present system is employed to generate and transmit information which is needed to construct or assemble truth tables and pertinent data which are directed to associated circuits which require testing. The present method employs a technique whereby information is nested, or compacted, in accordance with certain rules of grammar and is transmitted from a circuit design group to a vendor, i.e., a manufacturer of the circuit designed by a design group. When the nested information is expanded by a translator device, or by a translation program, at the manufactuer's location, it is directly expandable into truth table information for use by various logic testers. Each of the truth tables defines a specific function that the designer wants tested in the associated circuit. The manufacturer supplies the test platform hardware which generates the desired signal patterns defined by the truth table information and pertinent data.

  • Patent number: 4701845
    Abstract: A processor forms part of a computer network wherein the processor, designated as the User Interface Processor, operates to initialize and maintain and communicate to remote diagnostic terminals for purposes of confirming integrity of the system and also for finding the location of any faults or problems in the system. The User Interface Processor involves a microprocessor unit working in conjunction with a serial communications controller, random access memory and read only memory memories, a communications input/output (I/O) system, a multiple set of timer units and a priority interrupt controller. The User Interface Processor provides interfaces to a power control card unit, an I/O subsystem (of data link processors), and a remote terminal for diagnostic intercommunication.

  • Patent number: 4695946
    Abstract: A maintenance processor forms part of a computer network wherein the processor (also designated as the User Interface Processor) operates to initialize and maintain and communicate to remote diagnostic terminals for purposes of confirming integrity of the system and also for displaying data for locating any faults or problems in the network. The maintenance subsystem initiates start-up and self-test routines in a sequenced order for establishing the integrity of the units in the network. The subsystem includes means for testing two types of subsystems, that is, one having I/O controllers with self-test capability and another subsystem having I/O controllers without self-test capability. The UIP provides means for complete control of the network. It can interface the network to a remote service center where all operations such as power-up and initialization can be also effectuated.
