  • Publication number: 20220383399
    Abstract: A customer logs into a desired retailer through a Virtual Reality (VR)/Augmented Reality (AR) cross-retailer application (app). Preferences and/or a profile are obtained from the retailer via an Application Programming Interface (API). A customized VR/AR setting is rendered within the app based on the preferences and/or profile and a VR/AR session is initiated with the app. Consumable items and ingredients of each item are rendered as VR/AR selectable objects during the session for interaction by the customer and a custom item is made with selected ingredients. The customer purchases the item within the session and an order is placed with the retailer through the API. In an embodiment, an avatar of the customer and avatars of other customer placing orders with the retailer are rendered on a virtual floor or superimposed on an actual floor of the customer's physical environment within the app for social interaction and social network features.

  • Patent number: 11506712
    Abstract: Arrangements and techniques for testing mobile devices within a test module. The test modules are portable and may be stacked to provide a modular testing system. A pulley system may be used to move an actuator arm horizontally in the X and Y directions. The actuator arm may be moved vertically in the Z direction such that a tip may engage a touchscreen of a mobile device being tested or a user interface element of the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20220309286
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for generating a statistically covaried machine learning model for performance measurement of service providers. The method receives a configuration file that includes one or more parameters associated with a plurality of individuals and parses it to generate and executing the database query on input data to generate sets of tabulated data of individuals of the plurality of individuals. The method next determines one or more measures of service providers listed in the configuration file using two or more tabulated data of individuals from the sets of tabulated data of individuals. The method finally generates a covaried machine learning model by training a machine learning model by statistically covarying measures and using them as training data.

  • Patent number: 11436484
    Abstract: In various examples, physical sensor data may be generated by a vehicle in a real-world environment. The physical sensor data may be used to train deep neural networks (DNNs). The DNNs may then be tested in a simulated environment—in some examples using hardware configured for installation in a vehicle to execute an autonomous driving software stack—to control a virtual vehicle in the simulated environment or to otherwise test, verify, or validate the outputs of the DNNs. Prior to use by the DNNs, virtual sensor data generated by virtual sensors within the simulated environment may be encoded to a format consistent with the format of the physical sensor data generated by the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11427270
    Abstract: Example techniques have been presented for providing tracked vehicles with deployable towing wheels. Such techniques involve a track vehicle having a vehicle body, a track coupled to the vehicle body, and a wheel assembly coupled to the vehicle body. The wheel assembly includes a wheel and is operable to assume a towing position in which at least a portion of the wheel extends below the track and enables the tracked vehicle to be towed on the wheel without the track making ground contact.

  • Publication number: 20220225678
    Abstract: A concentrate vapor delivery system places a viscous concentrate at an optimal location for vaporization while simultaneously protecting the heating elements that enable vaporization from damage. Concentrate is positioned proximate to the heating source on a delivery apparatus whereby heat from the heating source liquefies the concentrate. Upon liquification the concentrate flows along the delivery device toward the heating source and into an environment of higher temperature, eventually vaporizing thereby releasing the desired vapor effect.

  • Publication number: 20220197431
    Abstract: A touch field is created around a touchscreen display, the field is in front of a touch surface of the display and the field maps to locations on the display. An operator of a terminal during a transaction is presented with transaction interface screens that are visually rendered on the display. The operator makes interface options selections, performs screen navigation, and provides date entry field inputs by placing the operator's hand within the field without touching the touch surface of the display and making hand poses, hand movements, and/or hand gestures. The poses, movements, and/or gestures are translated into touch actions and touch inputs recognized by the transaction interface and processed as operator-provided input during the transaction.

  • Publication number: 20220130503
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for generating a personalized action recommendation are provided. The method acquires a request for a service that is associated with a user and the user's condition. The method then identifies one or more features of the user based on stored user information. The method next assigns the user to a segment based on the identified one or more features, generates a set of one or more recommended actions for the user based on the segment, and determines an expected value of each of the one or more recommended actions. The method determines a rank of the one or more recommended actions based on the expected value of each of the one or more recommended actions, and outputs a recommended action with a highest expected value for the user in response to the request for the service.

  • Publication number: 20220101305
    Abstract: A mobile device establishes an indirect network connection to a User Interface (UI) agent of a terminal. The indirect connection managed as a mobile navigational control session maintained through a server or through the server and a proxy. A keyboard widget/object and a navigation-selection widget/object are rendered within a mobile screen on a display of the mobile device. During the session, a user interacts with the keyboard and/or navigation-selection widgets and corresponding UI key events are forwarded to the UI agent. The UI agent provides the UI key events as Human Interface Device (HID) key events to the terminal causing a transaction interface to update transaction screens being rendered on a transaction display of the terminal during a transaction. The user conducts the transaction at the terminal without touching the transaction display and controls the transaction screens for the transaction via the keyboard and navigational widgets from the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20220024666
    Abstract: A packaging system for fragile items comprising an outer box, a tray insert and a plurality of inner boxes. The system components protect the items, for example, glass pipes, during distribution, and easily convert into a display system for the items at the point of retail sale. Each item is contained in its own inner box, which includes one or more viewing windows to allow a purchaser easily to view the items. The inner boxes fit removably within paired holes in the tray insert, which provides multiple points of contact to hold the boxes in place, yet allows flexibility to protect the items from impact forces and to allow easy access by a purchaser. The tray insert fits within the outer box, which provides impact and debris protection during transit, and converts to a display mode. Both the outer box and each inner box may be marked with a code to allow inventory tracking.
