  • Patent number: 10756918
    Abstract: A system that enables a person to monitor and/or control a device via a network, such as the Internet, via an interactive hardware module that interfaces with the device and communicates with a module server located locally or remotely from the placement of the module. The hardware module allows for the transmission and receipt of data between the device interfaced to the hardware module and the module server, thereby enabling the user manually or automatically to control or monitor the device via an access medium, such as an API. Furthermore, the hardware module and the module server may enable the activation of an inactive device from a remote location.

  • Patent number: 10754526
    Abstract: A tool for interacting with a rendered environment is configured to render a representation of a real-world environment and receive input data indicative of a position for a zoom window to be placed within the representation. The zoom window is rendered having a size that is determined based on one or more criteria. A magnified view of a portion of the representation is rendered that is proximate to the position of the zoom window. Input data is received that is indicative of a first gesture indicative of a new position for the zoom window. The zoom window is repositioned on the UI and the size of the zoom window is maintained during the repositioning. Within the zoom window, a magnified view of a portion of the representation is rendered that is proximate to the new position of the zoom window. The zoom window is movable to any rendered portion of the representation.

  • Patent number: 10706141
    Abstract: An embodiment of a method of providing identity services includes: receiving identity data for an individual for which the identity provider has provided an identity; generating a transaction to store an identifier representing the identity data in a data structure on a blockchain of a distributed system; sending the transaction to at least one node of the distributed system; and generating an identity token incorporating the identifier representing the identity data. An embodiment of a method of verifying an identity includes: receiving data extracted from the identity token, wherein the extracted data includes an identifier representing the identity data; determining whether a data structure containing the extracted identifier representing the identity data is stored on a blockchain of a distributed system; and outputting an indication of a validity of an identity associated with the identity data based on the determination.

  • Patent number: 10697160
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a multi-function lavatory fixture are disclosed. The lavatory fixture includes a first and second leg, where a first end of each leg is configured to be mounted to a deck and a second end of each leg is located over a basin of the lavatory fixture. A connecting section extends between the second ends of each leg and includes outlets to dispense water and soap to wash a user's hands. The fixture also includes indicators located proximate each of the outlets to indicate to the user the location of each outlet. A sensor located near each outlet identifies the presence of a user's hands near the outlet and dispenses water and soap, accordingly. A controller within the lavatory fixture receives inputs from each sensor and activates the appropriate pump or valve to deliver the desired product at the appropriate outlet.

  • Publication number: 20200201522
    Abstract: A tool for interacting with a rendered environment is configured to render a representation of a real-world environment. Input data is received that is indicative of a position for a zoom window to be placed within the representation. The zoom window is rendered at the position within the representation and has a size that is determined based on one or more criteria. Within the zoom window, a magnified view of a portion of the representation is rendered that is proximate to the position of the zoom window. Input data is received that is indicative of a first gesture applied to the zoom window and is indicative of a resizing of the zoom window. The zoom window is resized on the UI in accordance with the first gesture, and a scale of the magnified view within the zoom window is maintained as the zoom window is resized. Input data is received that is indicative of a second gesture applied to the zoom window and indicative of a change to a zoom scale for content within the zoom window.

  • Publication number: 20200202342
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for identifying errors in transaction messages associated with payment transactions. The method includes a step of receiving a transaction message associated with a financial transaction, whereby the financial transaction originates from a merchant and is processed by an acquirer. The transaction message comprises a plurality of data element fields, with at least one of the data element fields being a merchant identification field used to identify the merchant originating the financial transaction. An additional step includes performing an error-identification routine on the transaction message, with the error-identification routine including analyzing a merchant identification (ID) data element populated in the merchant identification field to determine if the merchant ID data element is not uniquely associated with the merchant.
