  • Patent number: 12046141
    Abstract: The methods, devices, and systems discussed herein periodically broadcast a signal containing an indicator to a first area that is near a potential safety scenario, such as an intersection. Upon entering the first area, a mobile wireless communication device (WCD) receives the broadcast signal. In response to receiving the broadcast signal, the WCD activates a collision-avoidance procedure. In some examples, the collision-avoidance procedure includes sensing device-to-device (D2D) resources in order to detect D2D transmissions from an approaching D2D-capable device (e.g., a vehicle). In other examples, the collision-avoidance procedure includes transmitting a periodic D2D safety message using D2D resources.

  • Patent number: 12046142
    Abstract: The methods, devices, and systems discussed herein periodically broadcast a signal containing an indicator to a first area that is near a potential safety scenario, such as an intersection. In some examples, the broadcast signal is part of a Synchronization System Block (SSB). In other examples, the broadcast signal is a System Information Block (SIB) message. Upon entering the first area and waking from an IDLE state, a mobile wireless communication device (WCD) receives the broadcast signal. In response to receiving the broadcast signal, the WCD activates a collision-avoidance procedure. In some examples, the collision-avoidance procedure includes sensing device-to-device (D2D) resources in order to detect D2D transmissions from an approaching D2D-capable device (e.g., a vehicle). In other examples, the collision-avoidance procedure includes transmitting a periodic D2D safety message using D2D resources.

  • Publication number: 20240241341
    Abstract: A lens unit includes a lens, a frame, a barrel housing the frame therein and is connectable to a substrate for mounting an imaging element, and a temperature compensation member including first and second portions apart from each other in an optical-axis parallel direction. The temperature compensation member is in contact with the barrel at the first portion and with the frame at the second portion. The frame is movable in the optical-axis parallel direction with respect to the barrel. The length of extension in the optical-axis parallel direction per unit temperature of a part of the temperature compensation member between the first and second portions differs from the length of extension in the optical-axis parallel direction per unit temperature of a part of the barrel closer to a barrel side connected to the substrate than a part of the barrel in contact with the first portion.

  • Publication number: 20240242373
    Abstract: An observation device 10 includes an imaging device 17, storage 18, an acquirer 19, and a controller 20. The imaging device 17 generates an image. The storage 18 stores distance information. The distance information is a relationship between an image position and information pertaining to distance. The acquirer 19 acquires position information pertaining to the spatial position of a moving body. When the distance discrepancy between a measured distance and an estimated distance is at or above the first threshold, the controller 20 corrects the distance information using the measured distance. The measured distance corresponds to the position information. The estimated distance is obtained on the basis of the image position of the moving body in the image and the distance information.

  • Patent number: 12038529
    Abstract: An electronic device comprises a transmitting antenna that transmits a transmitted wave, a receiving antenna that receives a reflected wave obtained by reflection of the transmitted wave, and a controller. The controller generates a first sample based on a result obtained by subjecting a beat signal generated based on a transmitted signal based on the transmitted wave and a received signal based on the reflected wave to a first fast Fourier transform process. The controller generates a second sample based on a result obtained by subjecting the first sample to a second fast Fourier transform process, and estimates an arrival direction of the reflected wave based on the second sample. The controller sets the first sample from the beat signals in which the peak in the result obtained by performing the first fast Fourier transform process is equal to or higher than a first threshold value.
