  • Publication number: 20170086220
    Abstract: A method is provided or receiving a downlink control information (DCI) from a base station (BS) by a user equipment (UE) in a wireless communication system. The UE monitors a plurality of Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) candidates having a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) scrambled by a cell radio network temporary identifier (C-RNTI) and having a same payload size in a common search space and a UE-specific search space on a primary cell to receive the DCI from the BS. The common search space and the UE-specific search space are overlapped. If the UE is configured with a carrier indicator field (CIF), determining, by the UE, that only a PDCCH in the common search space is transmitted by the BS from among the plurality of PDCCH candidates. The UE receives a Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) corresponding to the PDCCH in the common search space.

    Abstract: Disclosed in the present application is a method, by a terminal, for relaying a discovery signal for terminal-to-terminal direct communication in a wireless communication system. Particularly, the method comprises the steps of: detecting a plurality of discovery signals transmitted from the same source terminal; determining whether to relay one of the plurality of discovery signals on the basis of a first hop count included in the plurality of discovery signals; and when it is determined to relay the one discovery signal, relaying the one discovery signal to another terminal, wherein a second hop count included in the one discovery signal to be relayed increase or decreases on the basis of the first hop count.

    Abstract: Disclosed are a method and an apparatus for updating a listen interval in a wireless communication system. To this end, a method for updating a listen interval by a station (STA) of a wireless communication system may comprise, if an operation mode of the station is changed, a request frame including information indicating that the operation mode of the station is changed, to an access point (AP); and receiving a response frame in response to the request frame from the AP. If a value of a listen interval of the station is changed as the operation mode of the station is changed, the request frame further include a value of a new listen interval of the station.

  • Publication number: 20170086114
    Abstract: A method of selecting a relay user equipment (UE) performed by a remote UE in wireless communication system, and a UE using the method are provided. The method includes determining whether a measurement of a current relay UE is smaller than a threshold and selecting a candidate relay UE satisfying a specific condition as a relay UE when the measurement of the current relay UE is smaller than the threshold. Here, the candidate relay UE is selected as a relay UE only when a measurement of the candidate relay UE is greater than a minimum hysteresis value (minHyst) based on the threshold.

  • Patent number: 9597642
    Abstract: A process for preparing a reverse osmosis membrane that includes: (A) providing a polyamine, a polyfunctional acid halide, and a flux increasing additive having the formula Z+B?, where Z+ is an easily dissociable cation and B? is a beta-diketonate; (B) combining the polyamine, polyfunctional acid halide, and flux increasing additive on the surface of a porous support membrane; and (C) interfacially polymerizing the polyamine and the polyfunctional acid halide, and flux increasing additive on the surface of the porous support membrane to form a reverse osmosis membrane comprising (i) the porous support membrane and (ii) a discrimination layer comprising a polyamide. The reverse osmosis membrane is characterized by a flux that is greater than the flux of the same membrane prepared in the absence of the flux increasing additive.

  • Patent number: 9598088
    Abstract: A driver assistance apparatus and a vehicle including the same are disclosed. The driver assistance apparatus includes a stereo camera, a memory to store road surface data regarding a state of a road surface classified into a dry state, a wet state, a snow covered state, and an icy state, and a processor to classify the state of the road surface as any one of the dry state, the wet state, the snow covered state, and the icy state based on stereo images received from the stereo camera and the road surface data. Consequently, it is possible to recognize a current road surface state.

  • Patent number: 9597830
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of manufacturing a hydrophilized hollow fiber membrane by a continuous process using an extruder. According to the method of the present invention, thermal curing agent in the form of a monomer or a oligomer is added to a polymer solution, and in the melt state before a separation membrane is manufactured, thermal polymerization occurs due to an initial reaction of a thermal initiator at the appropriate temperature within a cylinder of the extruder. Thus, a hydrophilic component is evenly distributed into the membrane at the micro-level, and the hydrophilic component is not washed out, resulting in very high stability. Another advantage is high economic value and efficiency because the process for hydrophilizing the membrane as well as the process for manufacturing the membrane is carried out by the continuous process using the extruder without using conventional extrusion equipment in the form of an agitator.
