  • Patent number: 10791487
    Abstract: A method for controlling handover of a user equipment device (UE) between (i) a first cell site that provides dual-connectivity service on a first radio access technology (RAT) and a second RAT and (ii) a second cell site that provides standalone first-RAT service, wherein the handover includes transitioning the UE from source first-RAT service to target first-RAT service. The method includes setting a handover threshold to use as a basis to evaluate whether target first-RAT coverage detected by the UE is sufficiently stronger than source first-RAT coverage detected by the UE, where setting the handover threshold includes setting the handover threshold to a value selected based on whether the UE has detected that second-RAT coverage of the first cell site meets a defined threshold measurement threshold. Further, the method includes applying the set handover threshold as a basis to control whether to invoke the handover of the UE.

  • Patent number: 10791221
    Abstract: An NG9-1-1 Test Call System provides for comprehensive testing for NG9-1-1 emergency calling systems. The Test Call System may include a Test Call Manager, a Test Call Generator and a Test Call Responder (or Receiver). While the NG9-1-1 Test Call System exercises the telephone network it does not consume resources of the NG9-1-1 emergency calling system, i.e., the emergency calling system PSAP is not used for testing. One function of the Test Call Manager is the creation of a Test Call Profile created to satisfy some test coverage criteria. The Profile may specify parameters of a suite of test calls including desired call handling destination (PSAP), originating network or geographic region, time or date for the start of testing, time or date for the end of testing, rate of test calls, number of test calls. Based on the geographic parameters the Profile is distributed to an appropriate Test Call Generator and an appropriate Test Call Responder (Receiver).

  • Patent number: 10769498
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method (40) reduces processing time of an application for visualizing image data, which application is one of a plurality of applications selectable by a user. Each of the plurality of applications includes a pre-processing algorithm for pre-processing the image data. The method predicts which one of the pre-processing algorithms is to be performed in response to a selection of an application by the user by: —extracting a feature vector from the image data, metadata, and/or additional data associated with the image data, —supplying the feature vector as input to a machine learned model, and —receiving an algorithm identifier as output from the machine learned model. The algorithm identifier identifies the pre-processing algorithm. Additionally, the algorithm identifier is used to select (42) the pre-processing algorithm. The image data is pre-processed (43) using the selected pre-processing algorithm.

  • Patent number: 10769496
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are techniques for detecting logos in images or video. In one embodiment, a first logo detection model detects, from an image, candidate regions for determining logos in the image. A feature vector is then extracted from each candidate region and is compared with reference feature vectors stored in a database. The logo corresponding to the best matching reference feature vector is determined to be the logo in the candidate region if the best matching meets a certain criterion. In some embodiments, a second logo detection model trained using synthetic training images is used in combination with the first logo detection model to detect logos in a same image.

  • Patent number: 10757599
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling application of MU-MIMO. The disclosure provides for considering a device's block error rate (BLER) as a basis to decide whether to provide the device with MU-MIMO service. For instance, a base station could determine which of the base station's served devices each have threshold low BLER. And on at least that basis, the base station could select each such device to receive MU-MIMO service. Or faced with a choice between devices to receive MU-MIMO service, the base station could compare the devices' levels of BLER and could select the devices that have lower BLER to receive MU-MIMO service.

  • Patent number: 10755087
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for performing automated capture of images based on emotion detection. In embodiments, a selection of an emotion class from among a set of emotion classes presented, via a graphical user interface, is received. The emotion class can indicate an emotion exhibited by a subject desired to be captured in an image. A set of images corresponding with a video is analyzed to identify at least one image in which a subject exhibits the emotion associated with the selected emotion class. The set of images can be analyzed using at least one neural network that classifies images in association with emotion exhibited in the images. Thereafter, the image can be presented in association with the selected emotion class.
