  • Publication number: 20180348186
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides for an electronic sensor for detecting a root of a plant in soil, the electronic sensor that includes a first conductor plate configured to be disposed in soil, a switch, a power supply, and signal extractor. The switch is electrically coupled to the first conductor plate and is configured to switch between a first mode and a second mode. The power supply is electrically coupled to the switch and is configured to provide an electrical charge to the first conductor plate in the first mode of the switch. The signal extractor is electrically coupled to the switch and is configured to extract a signal response at the first conductor plate in the second mode of the switch. The present disclosure further provides a second conductor plate configured to be disposed in soil adjacent to and substantially parallel to the first conductor plate. The second conductor plate is electrically coupled to ground.

  • Publication number: 20170364888
    Abstract: Techniques and arrangements of a point-of-sale (POS) system including a transaction interface control mechanism configured to prevent simultaneous input by a merchant and a customer during a transaction. The POS system can include a merchant user interface (UI) presented on a merchant-facing display and a customer UI presented on a customer-facing display. In some instances, the merchant UI can be on a display of a merchant device, while the customer UI can be on a display of a customer device. In such instances, the merchant device and the customer device can be operably connected via a wired or wireless connection.

  • Publication number: 20170169413
    Abstract: Techniques and arrangements for dynamically adjusting activity metrics and merchant states based, in part, on how many mobile electronic devices are currently located at the merchant. For example, if a number of mobile electronic devices is greater than a history of a number of devices, then it may be determined that the merchant is busy. If the number is less than the history of the number of devices, then it may be determined that the merchant is not busy.

  • Patent number: 9582797
    Abstract: Techniques and arrangements for dynamically adjusting item fulfillment times based, in part, on how many mobile electronic devices are currently located at the merchant. If the number is greater than a baseline number of devices by more than a threshold, then an expected wait time may be adjusted upwards. If the number is less than a baseline number of devices by more than a threshold, then the expected wait time may be adjusted downwards.
