  • Publication number: 20210204186
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure implement techniques of a new 3D waveform coding scheme that leverages the spatial properties of 5G NR systems. Specifically, in 5G systems, each UE location may be characterized by three parameters: propagation delay (tp), angle of elevation (?), and angle of azimuth (?). Global coding matrix may be generated by linear combination of these three attributes and a unique lattice code may be generated for each UE at different locations from the base station. Thus, considering the coding gain increases with increasing the distance between the codes, aspects of the present disclosure take advantage of geometrical properties of lattice. Particularly, within the 3D waveform coding, if lattice distance between co-beamed UEs is determined to be greater than threshold radius, a conjugate lattice code for the UEs may be applied in accordance with aspects of the present disclosure.

  • Publication number: 20210124748
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a system and a method for resource data classification and management. In operation, the present invention provides for evaluating a deployment probability score for each incoming data-record based on previous data-records. Further, a match score of each incoming data-record is computed. Furthermore, each incoming data-record is analyzed to determine a bench period associated with each incoming data-record. Yet further, the present invention, categorizes the incoming data-records into two or more categories based on corresponding deployment probability score, match score and bench period. A deployment opportunity index is generated for each incoming data-record representing the categories and corresponding probability score, match score and bench period, providing an upfront indication of deploy-ability of an incoming data-record. Finally, the present invention provides for generating a list of recommendations for each data-record.

  • Publication number: 20210122247
    Abstract: A braking system is disclosed. The braking system may include a controller configured to determine a speed threshold that is based on a deceleration of an output speed of a powertrain of a machine caused in part by engagement of one or more brakes of the machine during a directional shift in a movement of the machine, the speed threshold being the output speed of the powertrain at which the one or more brakes are to be commanded to disengage. The controller may be configured to command disengagement of the one or more brakes based on a determination that the output speed of the powertrain satisfies the speed threshold.

    Abstract: A computer system for generating a quantitative value relating to a negative health outcome, the computer system comprising: a conversion module configured to receive multiple sets of data items associated with patients and each comprising a descriptor and the time at which that event impacted the patient. The conversion module generates a training data structure which comprises for each patient an array of selected features, each selected feature associated with a numerical value representing a score indicative of the relevance of that feature to the prediction of the negative health outcome, and a label indicating if the patient exhibits the negative health outcome; and a machine learning model which is trained using the training data structure so as to be operable to generate a quantitative value relating to a negative health outcome for a patient with at least some of the features.

  • Patent number: 10843575
    Abstract: A control system for controlling operation of a drive motor includes an input device for providing a command signal that is indicative of a desired speed and direction of rotation of the drive motor. A sensor is associated with the drive motor and adapted to provide a sensor signal indicative of current rotational speed of the drive motor. A controller receives the command signal, and determine whether the command signal is indicative of a desired zero speed to be associated with the drive motor. The controller also receives the sensor signal, and determine whether the current rotational speed of the drive motor is within a pre-defined range of difference from the desired zero speed. The controller then generates a de-rated torque command signal having a reduced gain factor, and reduce the current rotational speed of the drive motor based on the de-rated torque command signal.
