  • Publication number: 20210174417
    Abstract: A privately owned communication terminal is enabled to be used as a shopping assistance device in a shopping assistance system introduced at a plurality of stores, without requiring complicated setup work on the communication terminal. The shopping assistance device accepts an entry operation to one store and acquires entry store identification information identifying the store and setup information associated with the identified. The device stores the entry store identification information and the setup information that are acquired. The device accepts an exit operation from one store and acquire exit store identification information identifying the store. The device clears the entry store identification information and the stored setup information, when the exit store identification information matches the entry store identification information.

  • Publication number: 20210142308
    Abstract: A transaction processing system includes a register, a settlement calculator, a receiver, and a controller. The register is configured to receive a communication from a terminal used by a customer. The communication indicates that a target commodity is to be purchased by the customer at the terminal. The settlement calculator is configured to perform settlement processing to facilitate settlement by the customer for a price associated with the target commodity. The receiver is configured to determine whether the target commodity is a commodity requiring confirmation. The receiver is also configured to acquire data associated with the target commodity in response to determining that the target commodity is a commodity requiring confirmation. The controller configured to compare the data to predetermined release data and to cause the settlement calculator to perform the settlement processing in response to the data being the predetermined release data.

  • Publication number: 20210142306
    Abstract: A transaction processing system includes at least one processor including a registering unit and a deleting unit. The at least one processor is configured to register, as purchased commodities, commodities designated by operation in an operation device in a terminal apparatus. The at least one processor is configured to delete, from the purchased commodities: in a first case in which a predetermined operation is performed in the operational device for designating one of the commodities on a list screen, in the display device, the list screen representing a list of the commodities registered as the purchased commodities by the at least one processor, wherein the commodity designated by the operation is deleted from the purchased commodities.

  • Publication number: 20210056614
    Abstract: A shopping support device includes a memory, a reading device, a network interface, and a processor. The processor is configured to, upon reading of a first code with the reading device at a store, decode the first code and acquire and, then store in the memory, first and second parameter values, and then control the network interface to connect to a store network using the first parameter value. Upon the reading of a commodity ID for a commodity with the reading device, the commodity ID is transmitted to a store server via the store network for registration. Upon receipt of a request from a user, checkout processing is performed based on the registered commodity ID on the server and the second parameter value.

  • Publication number: 20210056558
    Abstract: A checkout system includes a store server including a first network interface, a first memory that stores payment information indicating payment methods accepted at a store, and a first processor configured to, upon receipt of a request from a customer terminal, control the first network interface to transmit the payment information to the customer terminal. The system also includes a registration server including a second network interface, a second memory, and a second processor configured to acquire the payment information from the customer terminal via the second network interface. Upon receipt of a commodity ID of a commodity from the customer terminal via the second network interface, the second processor registers the commodity ID in the second memory and, upon receipt of a request for checkout from the customer terminal, performs checkout processing using the registered commodity ID and the payment information.

  • Publication number: 20210056528
    Abstract: A checkout system includes an interface, a memory that stores commodity data in which a name and a price of a commodity are associated with a commodity ID, and a processor configured to control the interface to establish a connection with a customer terminal. Upon receipt of a store code from the terminal, the processor determines whether the store code is valid. If the store code is valid, the processor controls the interface to transmit a command to the terminal for completing a check-in process at a store corresponding to the store code. Upon receiving a commodity ID from the terminal that has completed the check-in process, the processor retrieves, from the memory, a name and a price of a commodity associated with the commodity ID. The processor performs checkout processing using the retrieved name and price of the commodity if a request for checkout is received from the terminal.

  • Publication number: 20130328765
    Abstract: A signage system includes a plurality of display devices, an image capturing devices and a signage processing device. The signage processing device includes a personal recognition section for recognizing a person imaged in the image data, a data selection section for selecting a data group corresponding to the person recognized by the personal recognition section and a display control section for displaying a signage image based on the data group selected by the data selection section on the display device corresponding to the image data. The display control section displays the continuation of the signage image for the person displayed last time on the display device corresponding to the image capturing device which generates the image data if the personal recognition section recognizes the same person again according to the image data after displaying the signage image for the person on the display device.

  • Patent number: 6754572
    Abstract: A system for control of the discharge pressure of an input clutch hydraulic servo at the time of a D→N shift, in which the peak value (DN_Omega_max) rate of change of the rotational speed of an input shaft increases if the initial value (DN sol Sweep Start SLT signal) of the pressure adjusting control becomes high or low. A convergence region (DN_Omega_limit_max) is provided. On the basis of comparison between the previous peak value (DN_Omega_max_ave1) and the present peak value (DN_Omega_max_ave2), and the direction of correction, the learning is performed in accordance with various maps in a direction toward the convergence region.

  • Patent number: 6422356
    Abstract: The automatic transmission of the present invention prevents fluctuation of torque transmission through a band brake. In the hydraulic operator for the band brake, a resilient elastic cushion is provided between a rod abutting one end of the band of the band brake and a piston. Any slippage between the band and drum of the band brake will result in oscillation of the rod. However, the elastic cushion absorbs oscillation of the rod, thereby isolating the piston from that oscillation.
