  • Patent number: 10996334
    Abstract: A lidar system where a laser creates a laser output and the sequence generator creates a pseudorandom noise sequence. The laser output is directed into two paths. On the first path, the laser output is directed to a first modulator. The first modulator encodes the laser output with the pseudorandom noise sequence to produce an encoded output signal. The encoded output signal is amplified and directed toward a target, wherein a back-scattered signal is reflected back from the target. On the second path, the laser output is directed to a second modulator. The second modulator modulates the laser output to produce an oscillator signal. The back-scattered signal is aligned and is mixed with the oscillator signal from the second modulator. The resulting mixed signal is converted into a corresponding RF output signal. The RF output signal is cross-correlated with the pseudorandom noise sequence to acquire target data.

  • Patent number: 9092437
    Abstract: “Experience Streams” (ESs) are used by a “rich interactive narrative” (RIN) data model as basic building blocks that are combined in a variety of ways to enable or construct a large number of RIN scenarios for presenting interactive narratives to the user. In general various ES types contain all the information required to define and populate a particular RIN, as well as the information (in the form of a series of navigable states) that charts an animated and interactive course through each RIN. In other words, combinations of various ES provide a scripted path through a RIN environment, as well as various UI controls and/or toolbars that enable user interaction with the interactive narrative provided by each RIN. Example ESs include, but are not limited, content browser experience streams, zoomable media experience streams, relationship graph experience streams, player-controls/toolbar experience streams, etc.

  • Patent number: 9031166
    Abstract: Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate dynamically allocating demodulation resources of a wideband receiver to provide improved demodulation of simultaneously received signals. Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and/or packet error rate (PER) can be measured for the plurality of carriers to determine which demodulators related to the carriers require more resources than others to demodulate signals at a specified signal quality. Where the SNR of a related carrier is high and/or PER is low, the demodulator can require fewer resources than where the SNR of a related carrier is low and/or PER is high. In this regard, the resources are dynamically allocated among the demodulators and reallocated where SNR/PER changes and/or additional resources are made available.

  • Publication number: 20130251344
    Abstract: Techniques for manipulation of user experience state are described. A user experience can include various types of content that a user may consume, such as video content, images, audio content, text documents, and so on. Further, a “composition” can be created using various combinations of user experiences, such as still images inset to video content, a navigable map presented with images of geographical locations associated with the map, and so on. In implementations, techniques enable user experiences included as part of a composition to interact such that behaviors associated with one user experience can affect another user experience, and vice-versa.

  • Patent number: 8364462
    Abstract: A cross-lingual location search uses a combination of translation and transliteration of query tokens to develop a set of candidate matches for further searching. A query is broken up into individual tokens (e.g. address parts) and a list of transliterations and/or translations for each token is developed. The translated and transliterated results are keyed against a spatial database using both literal database keys and transliterated database keys. Matches from the resulting searches are selected when a spatial overlap, or constraint, occurs among subsequences of the query tokens.

  • Patent number: 7742447
    Abstract: Techniques to efficiently attempt acquisition of a packet data system (e.g., an IS-856 system). If a terminal has acquired one or more channels in a voice/data system (e.g., an IS-2000 system), then it can attempt acquisition on channels in the packet data system that are co-located with the acquired channels in the voice/data system. Multiple acquisition modes may be used, and on-going acquisition attempts on the co-located channels may be performed using one acquisition mode at a time in order to reduce power consumption. Acquisition attempts may be performed in a “ping-pong” manner to improve the likelihood of acquisition. For a ping-pong search, an acquisition attempt is made on the most recently acquired channel prior to an acquisition attempt on each of the remaining channels. Received signal strength estimates may also be obtained for selected channels and may be used to determine whether or not to attempt acquisition on these channels.
