  • Publication number: 20200359941
    Abstract: Independent component analysis may be performed on a plurality of detected electronic signals to separate signals within the detected electronic signals that are contributed by different sources. Each of the plurality of detected electronic signals may be received from a separate detector and may correspond to a detected optical signal emanating from a pregnant mammal's abdomen and a fetus contained therein. The detected optical signals may correspond to light that is projected into the pregnant mammal's abdomen from a light source. The separated signals may be analyzed to determine a separated signal that corresponds to light incident upon the fetus, which may be analyzed to determine a fetal hemoglobin oxygen saturation level of the fetus. An indication of the fetal hemoglobin oxygen saturation level may then be provided to the user.

  • Publication number: 20200323467
    Abstract: Fetal tissue oxygenation may be performed transabdominally by, for example, receiving a plurality of detected electronic signals that correspond to light emitted from a pregnant mammal's abdomen and a fetus contained therein that has been detected by the detector and converted into the detected electronic signal. An indication of a depth of the fetus within the pregnant mammal's abdomen may be received and a portion of the detected electronic signals that correspond to light that was incident upon the fetus may be isolated responsively to the indication of the depth of the fetus using, for example, time of flight of photons that correspond to the detected electronic signals. A fetal tissue oxygen saturation level may then be determined using the isolated portion of the detected electronic signals that correspond to light that was incident upon the fetus.

  • Patent number: 10614512
    Abstract: Described are techniques for providing an interactive user interface configured to receive at least two types of user input, such as a tap gesture and a swipe gesture provided to a control region of the user interface. Responsive to the first type of user input, a first process may be performed, such as adding an indication of an item to an electronic list for a future purchase. Responsive to the second type of user input, a second process may be performed, such as the immediate purchase of an item based on stored shipping and payment data. In some cases, data associated with a process may be accessed responsive to the initiation of user input, but the process may not be initiated until the user input has been completed. Modifications to characteristics of the process may be changed responsive to additional user input provided to the control region.

  • Patent number: 10586260
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a unique (or quasi unique) identifier can be received by an application store, or other on-line store, and the store can create a signed receipt that includes data desired from the unique identifier. This signed receipt is then transmitted to a device that is running the application obtained from the on-line store and the device can verify the receipt by deriving the unique (or quasi-unique) identifier from the signed receipt and comparing the derived identifier with the device identifier stored on the device, or the vendor identifier assigned to the application vendor.
