  • Patent number: 10343290
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, and method is configured to retrieve items and particularly items that are stored in high-density storage solutions. The system can include one or two-piece manipulators with retractable grippers. The manipulators can be relatively low profile and/or low friction to facilitate their placement between a target item and adjacent items on densely packed shelves or trays. In a retracted position, the grippers can be stowed beneath the surface of the manipulators to further facilitate the placement of the manipulators. In a deployed position, the grippers can extend above the surface of the manipulators to increase the contact area, coefficient of friction, and/or surface pressure of the manipulators on the target item. The grippers can enable the manipulators to be thinner than would otherwise be possible to enable retrieval of items from tightly packed storage solutions—e.g., warehouses with higher gross cubic utilization (GCU).

  • Publication number: 20190175013
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments may include a device, system and method for providing a low cost device that can measure refractive errors very accurately via attachment to a smart phone. A disclosed device may use ambient light or a light source in simulating the cross cylinder procedure that optometrists use by utilizing the inverse Shack-Hartman technique. The optical device may include an array of lenslets and pinholes that will force the user to effectively focus at different depths. Using an optical device, in conjunction with a smart phone, the user first changes the angle of the axis until he/she sees a cross pattern (the vertical and horizontal lines are equally spaced). The user adjusts the display, typically using the controls on the smartphone, to make the lines come together and overlap, which corresponds to bringing the view into sharp focus, thus determining the appropriate optical prescription for the user.

    Abstract: A system for replicating a standardized visual acuity test, such as the 20? Snellen test may comprise a binocular viewer attached to a smartphone. A binocular viewer may comprise a housing comprising a pair tube covers having voids allowing for viewing through a pair of lens tubes with each lens tube in visual communication with a second lens a first lens an aperture and a front cover. The optical systems use an artful combination of front and back lens surfaces, demagnification and other systems to faithfully replicate the sight lines perceived by a user of a traditional 20? test. The system also allows for the incorporation of other tests conducted with both eyes including Color Sensitivity and Contrast, furthermore by placing a deformable, tunable lens between the second lens and the eye the device serves as an ophthalmic refractometer, allowing a Spherical Equivalent refraction estimate for each eye.

  • Patent number: 10257200
    Abstract: A request for communicating with a first user is received by a second user. The request includes a first identification specific to the first user. The first identification is different from an account used by the first user in the communication. Based on a communication mapping associated with the first user, it is determined whether the second user is allowed to communicate with the first user using the first identification. The communication mapping indicates authorized users allowed to communicate with the first user and respective identifications allowed to be used by the authorized users. The account used by the first user in the communication is obtained to initiate the communication with the first user. The account used is obtained in response to determining that the second user is allowed to communicate with the first user using the first identification.

  • Patent number: 10251347
    Abstract: A method for generating digital models of potential crop yield based on planting date, relative maturity, and actual production history is provided. In an embodiment, data representing historical planting dates, relative maturity values, and crop yield is received by an agricultural intelligence computer system. Based on the historical data, the system generates spatial and temporal maps of planting dates, relative maturity, and actual production history. Using the maps, the system creates a model of potential yield that is dependent on planting date and relative maturity. The system may then receive actual production history data for a particular field. Using the received actual production history data, a particular planting date, and a particular relative maturity value, the agricultural intelligence computer system computes a potential yield for a particular field.
