  • Patent number: 10754600
    Abstract: Instructions to print and deliver a printed item to a destination are received by a self-navigating mobile printer that makes autonomous printing decisions. An internal controller of the mobile printer autonomously determines whether to print the printed item using an internal printer within the mobile printer or an external printer, which may print faster and at lower cost than the internal printer. A self-drive unit of the mobile printer can move the mobile printer to an external printer, based on the internal controller's determination to print the printed item using the external printer. The printed item can be automatically retrieved from an output of the external printer and fed into a storage compartment of the apparatus, using an automated retrieval feeder of the mobile printer. The mobile printer then moves to the destination using the self-drive unit under control of the internal controller to deliver the printed item.

  • Patent number: 10571426
    Abstract: A pixel circuit acts as a sensing element in a sensing device. The pixel circuit includes a sensing electrode, a first gate electrically connected to the sensing electrode, a second gate in electrical communication with the first gate, and a readout device that is electrically connected to the second gate. An input voltage applied to the sensing electrode is amplified between the first gate and the second gate, the amplification being measured as an output signal from the readout device to perform a sensing operation. For example, the output signal may be relatable to pH, analyte measurements, or other properties of sample liquids analyzed by the sensing device. A sensing device may include multiple pixels disposed on a substrate, each pixel including said pixel circuit. Driver circuits controlled by control electronics are configured to generate signals that selectively address the pixels and to read out voltages at the sensing electrodes.
