  • Publication number: 20210059096
    Abstract: An agricultural machine performs a prescribed agricultural operation in a field. The machine is controlled to change the agricultural operation to a check strip operation. A location where the check strip operation is commenced is sensed and a location where the check strip operation ceases is also sensed. A dimension of the check strip, and its location, are stored.

  • Patent number: 10683178
    Abstract: Systems and methods for processing earthen slurries such as slurries of earth cuttings and, in particular, systems and methods that involve two separation units for dewatering the slurry or that involve additive mixing units are disclosed. The systems and methods may include a conveyor such as a drag-slat conveyor that removes slurry from a holding tank at which the material is dumped and toward the separation units to allow the material to be continuously processed and dumped into the holding tank.

  • Patent number: 7061966
    Abstract: A mobile wireless communications device and methods therefore, including receiving a signal (710), storing a portion of the received signal (730), identifying all possible pilot signals by determining slot boundary information for the stored signal portion (720), determining frame boundary information and/or scrambling code information (760) of the stored signal portion by correlating the stored signal portion with the scrambling codes based on the slot boundary information. In other embodiments, the search is performed in real-time without storing the signal.

  • Patent number: 6993296
    Abstract: A method for increase receiver efficiency in a multimode communication device includes a first step of monitoring a received signal strength of a neighboring cell on a receiver channel. A next step includes determining a noise on the receiver channel from a transmitter power amplifier of the communication device. A next step includes comparing the level of interference with a predetermined threshold and with respect to the signal strength. A next step includes blanking the receiver when the transmitter power amplifier of the communication device is on and if the predetermined threshold is not exceeded indicating excessive self-interference.

  • Publication number: 20050237963
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating network-to-network transitions of mobile stations comprising includes at least one access point (204). At least one receiver (202, 224 or 230) is coupled to the at least one access point. The at least one receiver (202, 224 or 230) determines information concerning a wide area network and provides the information to the access point (204). The access point (204) conveys the information to at least one mobile station (206).

  • Patent number: 6895033
    Abstract: A first sequence state storage module (20) periodically stores a present state (22) of a long code generator (30). Following a restoration of power after a power cut condition, or following the termination of any other interruption of the generation of the long code, a sequence recovery module (50) then provides an updated present state (36). The updated present state (36) is based upon a stored present state (24) and a time value (52) that is reset whenever the present state (22) of the long code or other sequence is stored and that is available even when the long code or other sequence is interrupted.

  • Publication number: 20050085230
    Abstract: A circuit (2) and method acquires a pilot signal and produces a pilot strength measurement message (PSMM) (4). The circuit (2) includes a pilot strength measurement message generator (20). The pilot strength measurement message generator (20) receives the long term filtered measurement data (22) corresponding to at least one pilot signal (70) to produce the pilot strength measurement message (4). The pilot strength measurement message generator (20) produces the pilot strength measurement message (4) based on at least the long term filtered measurement data (22). According to one embodiment, a wireless device (10) employs a first receiver (30) to generate the long term filtered measurement data (22), a second receiver (40) to generate short term filtered measurement data (24), and the pilot strength measurement message generator (20) for producing the pilot strength measurement message (4).

  • Publication number: 20050083871
    Abstract: A circuit (2) and method employing logic circuitry (30) and memory (40) identifies a reverse link limited channel (80). The logic circuitry (30) identifies a reverse link limited channel based on determining that an access probe failure occurred on a channel (64). The logic circuitry (30) causes the memory to store reverse link limited channel data (80) in response to the logic circuitry (30) determining that the access probe failure occurred. The reverse link limited channel data (80), for example, may be a channel identification associated with the channel (64), a base station identification associated with the channel (64), a location identification of the circuit (2) or any data suitable for identifying and adapting dynamically to the reverse link limited channel.

  • Publication number: 20050048972
    Abstract: A system, wireless device (306) and method determine that a wireless device (306) is detecting a triggering event. The triggering event includes detecting a WLAN border cell (210), detecting a first signal from an egress portal (302), or detecting a degradation in signal quality. The wireless device (306) then detects at least one signal from an egress portal (302), determines that the wireless device (306) is moving from the coverage area of a first communications system to the coverage area of a second communications system according to the order of signals received from the egress portal (302), initiates a registration sequence with the second wireless communication system in response to determining that the wireless device (306) is moving from the coverage area of the first communications system to the coverage area of the second communications system, and conducts present and subsequent calls via the second wireless communication system.

  • Publication number: 20050020267
    Abstract: A method in a wireless communications device that allocates neighbor signals to a candidate set based on signal allocation criteria, including dynamically changing the signal allocation criteria based on at least one of a number of signals in an active signal set (330) and on a signal quality of a strongest of signal in the active signal set (332). In one embodiment the signal allocation criteria is the length of an IIR filter.
