  • Patent number: 12039769
    Abstract: A method identifies a type of object in a digital image. A user and/or one or more processors selects, from a plurality of partially overlapping sub-images of a digital image, a first sub-image and a second sub-image that overlap one another. The user/processors input the first sub-image into a neural network to create a first inference result that includes an overlapping inference result, for the overlapping area, that recognizes a partial portion of a specific type of object based on the overlapping area. The user/processors infer that the second sub-image creates a second inference result that recognizes a second portion of the specific type of object in the second sub-image based on the second sub-image and the overlapping inference result. The neural network identifies the specific type of object in the digital image based on the first and second sub-images being sub-images of a same type of object.

  • Patent number: 12028087
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described for one or more aspects of dynamically configuring an analog-to-digital converter (ADC). A user equipment (UE) may determine a set of supported ADC resolution sizes including one or more dynamically configurable bit quantities. The UE may transmit a capability message including an indication of the set of ADC resolution sizes to a base station. The UE may indicate, to the base station, a power consumption factor or a table of signal-to-quantization noise ratios (SQNR) per bit quantity supported by the UE's ADC. In some cases, the base station may enable, based on the set of ADC resolution sizes, clipping of a power amplifier and one or more associated precoding parameters, and may indicate the precoding parameters to the UE. The UE may select an ADC resolution size for processing received messages.

  • Patent number: 12022396
    Abstract: Embodiments include methods for selective transmission of wake-up signals (WUS) to a user equipment (UE) by a network node in a RAN. Such methods include transmitting a WUS to the UE during a first occasion and, during one or more second occasions, monitoring for WUS feedback from the UE in response to the WUS. Such methods include, based on the results of the monitoring, selectively transmitting one or more further WUS to the UE during respective one or more third occasions. The WUS feedback can be received in various ways in different embodiments. In some embodiments, such methods include other operations after a predetermined number of repetitions of detecting no WUS feedback from the UE during second occasions and transmitting further WUS to the UE during third occasions. Other embodiments include complementary methods for a UE, as well as network nodes and UEs configured to perform such methods.

  • Patent number: 11997600
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Some networks, such as over-deployed integrated access and backhaul (IAB) networks operating in millimeter wave (mmW) bands, may experience high energy consumption if all nodes in the network are fully active at all times. Power utilization modes may mitigate energy consumption by allowing nodes to operate at varying levels of activity. A power utilization mode may include a fully active mode or may drop one or more functions that a fully active node may support, or may support less extensive configurations associated with one or more supported functions, as compared to the configurations associated with a fully active node. Nodes may request information regarding one or more nodes, request a change in power utilizations modes for itself, indicate another node should change modes, or may receive an indication to change modes.

  • Patent number: 11943707
    Abstract: A core provider predicts that a device will enter an area of poor coverage by a wireless network provider. Based on the prediction, one or more rules are applied to prioritize data traffic to be received prior to entering the area of poor coverage. The prediction that the device will enter the area of poor coverage may be based on cell coverage data received from the wireless network provider, connection quality data received from other devices, a location of the device, a speed of the device, a direction of the device, or any suitable combination thereof. A route of the device may be changed to avoid or minimize an amount of time in the area of poor coverage. As another alternative, the device may be switched from the wireless network provider to another wireless network with better coverage.

  • Patent number: 11930556
    Abstract: A wireless telecommunication system comprises a base station and a terminal device (UE). The UE is configured to determine its mobility status and an associated reliability, e.g. an indication of the extent to which the UE is moving and the confidence in this determination. In some cases the reliability may be based on how the UE determined its mobility status. For example, if the UE determined itself to be of relatively low mobility because it has an internal configuration setting indicating it is deployed in a fixed position, the reliability of this mobility status may be considered to be greater than if the UE determined itself to be of relatively low mobility because it has not recently undergone many base station handovers. The UE is configured to convey an indication of the mobility status and the reliability to the base station.

  • Patent number: 11917542
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for adjusting a time period to delay entering a power save mode (leak guard) for wireless communications. In one aspect, a wireless communication device may adjust a time period to delay entering a power save mode. The time period is associated with the wireless communication device remaining awake to prevent an access point from transmitting to the wireless communication device while the wireless communication device is in the power save mode. The wireless communication device also may provide, to the AP, an indication that the wireless communication device is entering a power save mode, and the wireless communication device may enter the power save mode. Entering the power save mode is at least the adjusted time period after providing the indication to the AP.
