  • Publication number: 20200352803
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a roll-in cot may include a support frame, a pair of back legs, a pair of front legs, and a cot actuation system. The pair of back legs and the pair of front legs can be slidingly coupled to the support frame. Each of the pair of front legs can include a front wheel and an intermediate load wheel. The intermediate load wheel is offset from the front wheel by a load wheel distance. A front actuator can raise the pair of front legs such that the front wheel and the intermediate load wheel of each of the pair of front legs are aligned along a loading level. The intermediate load wheel of each of the pair of front legs can be offset from the pair of back legs by a loading span. The load wheel distance can be greater than the loading span.

  • Patent number: 10817869
    Abstract: A payment terminal includes multiple chips that perform different processing functions within the payment terminal. A terminal chip performs general functionality of the payment terminal while a transaction chip communicates with payment devices such as chip cards and NFC payment devices and processes payment information. The transaction chip may operate in a low power during which communications and processing are limited, and a transaction processing mode in which transactions may be processed. The transaction chip may transfer between these modes based on wake-up messages provided by other devices or circuitry of the payment terminal.

  • Patent number: 10733588
    Abstract: In some examples, a merchant device at a point of sale (POS) location may present information to a merchant in a first language preferred by the merchant, and may present information to a buyer in a second language preferred by the buyer. The merchant device may switch between the different languages in response to detecting a change in the physical orientation of a display. For instance, in a first orientation in which the display is viewable from a merchant direction, the merchant device may present information in the language preferred by the merchant. When the orientation of the display is changed to a second orientation in which the display is viewable from a buyer direction, the merchant device may present information in the language indicated to be preferred by the buyer. Various techniques may be used for determining the preferred language of a particular buyer.

  • Patent number: 10684384
    Abstract: A downhole measurement tool configured to be run through a bore includes a source and a 3-component receiver. The source is configured to emit a signal into a volume of material surrounding the bore. The source signal propagates through the material surrounding the bore and reflects off of features within the material surrounding the bore. The three-component receiver includes a first, a second, and a third element. The first element is oriented in a first plane, orthogonal to an axis of the bore, and receives a first component of the set of reflections of the source signal. The second element is oriented in the first plane, orthogonal to the first element, and receives a second component of the set of reflections of the source signal. The third element is oriented parallel to the axis and receives a third component of the set of reflections of the source signal.

  • Patent number: 10528945
    Abstract: A payment handling system operates to handle payments for the cost of an open ticket transaction in which incremental authorization operations are performed. The payment handling system receives items to add to the open ticket, payment instruments for paying the cost of the open ticket or adjustments to any bill splitting arrangement throughout the life of the open ticket. As items are added, payment instruments are received, and/or adjustments are input, the amount allocated to the one or more payments instruments may be updated. Incremental authorization values are determined for some or all of the payment instruments. When the amount allocated to a payment instrument exceeds the incremental authorization value, an authorization of the instrument is attempted and a new authorization value is determined. At the end of the interaction, the open ticket is closed and payment is executed.

  • Patent number: 10482440
    Abstract: A mobile point-of-sale (POS) terminal for processing a financial transaction between a buyer and a merchant includes a first mobile computing device running a register application configured to receive payment information from the buyer for facilitating a transfer of funds from the buyer to the merchant, and a payment object reader coupled with the first mobile computing device. The payment object reader includes a wireless communication interface, a processor configured to determine the proximity of the second mobile computing device using signal strength of a signal received via the wireless communication interface. In response to the proximity of the second mobile computing device crossing a threshold, the payment object reader transmits a request to the second mobile computing device to connect with the first mobile computing device. The first mobile computing device and the second mobile computing device may then communicate payment and/or transaction information to complete a POS transaction.
