  • Patent number: 11021306
    Abstract: A packaging system comprises: a package forming a set of discrete compartments; and a film portion interfacing with the package. The film portion includes a set of one or more electrically conductive traces in which each electrically conductive trace is associated with a respective compartment of the set of discrete compartments. Each electrically conductive trace of the set of electrically conductive traces forms a respective circuit loop that has a terminal end that terminates within an interface region of the film portion to collectively form a termination pattern. At least one of the package or the film portion have two or more alignment ports defined therein that are arranged according to an alignment pattern, each alignment port passing through at least one of the package or film portion.

  • Patent number: 11006366
    Abstract: Systems and methods for effectuating communication in a low power wide area network using a mobile data-handling device are disclosed. A method may comprise moving a mobile data-handling device to a first position that is within communication range of an end node of a low power wide area network. The mobile data-handling device may receive a data packet from the end node and may move to a second position at which the mobile data-handling device connects to a data-receiving device. The mobile data-handling device may transmit, via the data-receiving device, the data packet to a computing system for further processing.

  • Patent number: 11005302
    Abstract: A contactless card with power harvesting unit is described. The power harvesting unit is configured to harvest power from near field communication radio wave fields and supply power to a memory, processor, and communication circuit of the contactless card. In some embodiments, the contactless card may also include a capacitor for smoothing out power deliver or a rechargeable battery. The contactless card is configured to establish two-way communication with a secondary device and to store and execute applets. In some embodiments, the contactless card is a payment card which contains information associated with a primary profile and a secondary profile. The secondary profile may be activated using two-way communication if the primary profile is deactivated due to fraudulent activity.

  • Publication number: 20200402114
    Abstract: A device, that is part of a network of nodes that has access to a blockchain, may receive, from a user device associated with an entity, a request for campaign information for a campaign. The request may include data identifying campaign parameters. The device may interact with smart contracts associated with the blockchain to identify individuals to target for the campaign. The smart contracts may be configured to receive the campaign parameters as input and to output an indication of whether campaign preferences are compatible with the campaign parameters. The device may generate the campaign information to include information identifying the individuals targeted for the campaign and information identifying particular campaign preferences found to be compatible with particular campaign parameters. The device may provide the campaign information to the user device to permit the user device to use the campaign information to target the individuals for the campaign.

  • Publication number: 20200327535
    Abstract: Example embodiments of systems and methods for data transmission between a contactless card, a client application, and a server are provided. The memory of the contactless card may include a first card number table storing a first plurality of card numbers, each card number associated with a user account. A first applet may cycle through the first card number table and transmit each of the first plurality of card numbers to a second applet. In response to detection of one or more gestures by the card, the client application may read one or more of the first plurality of card numbers from the second applet and transmit a verification request associated with the one or more read card numbers to the server, which may compare the one or more read card numbers to a number from a second card number table and transmit a verification determination to authenticate the card.

  • Patent number: 10795975
    Abstract: A node, of a network of nodes with access to a distributed ledger, receives a request to verify the user has consented to a current version of terms (i.e., current terms) associated with a program. The node obtains, using the distributed ledger, historical consent data indicating a version of the terms to which the user has previously provided consent. The node performs a first verification procedure to determine the user has not consented to the current terms, provides an indication to a user device that the user has not consented to the current terms, and receives, from the user device, a message indicating an acceptance of the current terms. The node performs additional verification procedures to determine that the user is who consented to the current terms and updates the distributed ledger to include a record indicating that the user consented to the current terms.

  • Patent number: 10626806
    Abstract: A control process for controlling an engine speed governor of an engine is provided. The process comprises the steps of calculating the current engine power being developed by the engine, and determining an appropriate engine speed for the current engine power based upon a first engine map. The process then instructs the speed governor to adjust the engine speed in accordance with the first map if required. The process monitors for desired engine power requests, and calculates a power ratio of desired engine power versus current engine power upon receiving a desired engine power request. The process then establishes an engine speed adjustment value based upon a second engine map of power ratio versus speed adjustment value, and instructs the speed governor to adjust the engine speed in accordance with the speed adjustment value. A speed governor system incorporating the control process, and a work machine or vehicle incorporating such a system are also provided.
