  • Patent number: 10641547
    Abstract: A method for designing a smoothie pod includes: receiving input from a user via a user device that communicates with a beverage profile system over a communications network, wherein the input is received via a graphical user interface and includes selections of ingredients to be added to the smoothie pod; determining, via the beverage profile system, that a flavor profile of the smoothie pod that is based on the ingredients selected by the user includes at least one flavor type having a percentage of the flavor profile that is outside of an acceptable threshold percentage range of the flavor profile; and presenting a suggestion via the graphical user interface of one or more additional ingredients to be added to the smoothie pod to modify the percentage of the flavor type to be within the acceptable threshold percentage range of the flavor profile.

  • Patent number: 10217366
    Abstract: A waste management system and associated method are used to control routing of an autonomous waste receptacle in a facility. The autonomous waste receptacle includes a cavity for storing trash, a trash level sensor for sensing a level of trash stored therein, and a motor operative to move the waste receptacle. Position trackers sense positions of the autonomous waste receptacle and of patrons in the facility. Additionally, concession consumption concession consumption data indicative of sales performed by concessions in the facility are stored. A processing subsystem controls the waste receptacle to move autonomously in the facility along a route determined according to correlations between concession consumption data, trash levels monitored by the waste receptacle, and patron positions.

  • Publication number: 20180272540
    Abstract: A sanitation monitoring and control system and associated method are used to route sanitation resources, such as sanitation robots configured to sweep, vacuum, or empty trash receptacles, in a facility. The system includes a network of sensors disposed throughout the facility and configured to sense patrons within the facility. A sanitation monitoring and control server stores records of patron positions at different times determined using the network of sensors, determines numbers of patrons in different areas of the facility at the different times according to the patrons' determined positions, determines activities patrons are engaged in in the different areas at the different times, and calculates sanitations scores for the areas according to a weighted sum of the numbers of patrons engaging in the determined activities. A route for the sanitation resource is calculated based on the sanitation scores and is transmitted to the sanitation resource to provide sanitation services.

  • Publication number: 20180247270
    Abstract: Embodiments for monitoring ride conditions at theme parks in order to provide predictions when maintenance and/or expected downtime may occur. The monitored ride conditions are also used alongside information obtained from tracking patrons and predicted activity at the theme park in order to provide predictions for wait times at the various attractions. The predictions for maintenance and wait times can be displayed for the patrons. Furthermore, these predictions also provide the embodiments of the present application the ability to identify alternative attractions for situations where the predicted wait time for the attraction is too long. In this way, patrons may be able to schedule their trip at the theme park to take advantage of various attractions when the wait times are lower.
