  • Patent number: 10708815
    Abstract: A communication control system, user terminal, and processor for controlling a user terminal in which a user terminal controls communication by using a first data bearer and a second data bearer, where the first data bearer does not pass through a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), but passes through the cellular base station, and the second data bearer passes through the WLAN and the cellular base station. The cellular base station controls communication with the user terminal by using the first data bearer and the second data bearer. The user terminal receives information transmitted from the cellular base station, where the information is for the user terminal to transmit a status report indicating a delivery status regarding data received via the WLAN and data directly received from the cellular base station. The user terminal transmits the status report to the cellular base station on a basis of the information.

  • Publication number: 20200208972
    Abstract: A piezoelectric body of a sensor includes a driving arm and detecting arm which extend from a base part in a y-axis direction. Excitation electrodes vibrate the driving arm in an x-axis direction. Detecting electrodes enable detection of a signal due to deformation in a z-axis direction of the detecting arm. The piezoelectric body has anisotropy causing vibration of torsional deformation when the driving arm vibrates in the x-axis direction. When the driving arm bends to a +x side, the base part flexes so that a connection position in the base part is displaced to one side in the z-axis direction. The cross-section of the driving arm perpendicular to the y-axis direction causes a bending stiffness to the +x side and to the other side in the z-axis direction is smaller than a bending stiffness to the +x side and to the one side in the z-axis direction.
