  • Publication number: 20190306835
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) operating in an autonomous-scheduled mode may select a first resource from a resource pool. The WTRU may determine that the first resource is reserved for at least one sidelink transmission scheduled via a network-scheduled mode. The WTRU may evaluate the availability of resources in the resource pool based on determining that the first resource is reserved for the sidelink transmission. The WTRU may determine that a resource is available based on a measurement comparison to one or more thresholds. For example, there may be a first threshold for resources reserved by WTRUs operating using the network-scheduled mode and a second threshold for resources reserved by WTRUs operating using the autonomous-scheduled mode. The first threshold may be determined based on the second threshold and an offset value. The WTRU may reselect to a second resource in the resource pool based on the evaluated resource availability.

  • Publication number: 20190254682
    Abstract: A computer-assisted surgery system for guiding alterations to a bone, comprises a trackable member secured to the bone. The trackable member has a first inertial sensor unit producing orientation-based data. A positioning block is secured to the bone, and is adjustable once the positioning block is secured to the bone to be used to guide tools in altering the bone. The positioning block has a second inertial sensor unit producing orientation-based data. A processing system providing an orientation reference associating the bone to the trackable member comprises a signal interpreter for determining an orientation of the trackable member and of the positioning block. A parameter calculator calculates alteration parameters related to an actual orientation of the positioning block with respect to the bone.
