  • Publication number: 20240064525
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media herein provide for adjustment of a spectrum sharing allocation between devices operating on 5G and/or 6G technologies. An inter-operator scheduler receives common signals associated with 5G and/or 6G devices and determines time and/or frequency divisions and configurations to a shared technology spectrum to allocate spectrum resources. In response to determining an allocation of the shared spectrum, the shared spectrum can be efficiently shared among 5G and 6G devices in a dynamic and flexible manner.

  • Publication number: 20230269671
    Abstract: Methods, media, and systems are provided for optimizing coverage and power usage in a network deploying an unlicensed band. A first transmission power associated with a primary carrier and a second transmission power associated with a secondary carrier are determined. Location data and channel state information from a user device utilizing the primary carrier and the secondary carrier are received. An interference level may be determined using the channel state information. Based on the location data and the interference level, the second transmission power associated with the secondary carrier is reduced and the first transmission power of the primary carrier is increased. In some aspects, a beamforming technique is applied for downlink transmissions via a 5G New Radio unlicensed band. In some aspects, upon detection of an increase of 3 dBi antenna gain, the second transmission power is reduced by 1 dBm.

  • Publication number: 20230209506
    Abstract: An Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB) Mobile Terminal (MT) identifies its geographic location and determines a New Radio Licensed (NR-L) frequency band and a New Radio Unlicensed (NR-U) frequency band based on the location. The IAB MT determines received signal strengths for the frequency bands. The IAB MT compares the received signal strengths to and select the NR-U frequency band. The IAB MT wirelessly exchanges network signaling over the NR-U frequency band and establishes an IAB link over the NR-U frequency band. A Radio Unit (RU) wirelessly exchanges user data with wireless User Equipment (UEs) and exchanges the user data with a Distributed Unit (DU). The DU exchanges the user data with the IAB MT. The IAB MT wirelessly exchanges the user data over the IAB link using the NR-U frequency band.

  • Publication number: 20230195565
    Abstract: In described examples, a memory system is accessed by reading a data line and error detection bits for the data line from a first memory. The data line and the error detection bits from the first memory are decoded to determine if an error is present in the data line from the first memory. A copy of the data line and the error detection bits are stored in a second memory. The copy of the data line and error detection bits are read from the second memory. The copy of the data line and error detection bits are decoded to determine if an error is present in the copy of the data line from the second memory.

  • Patent number: 11674812
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can determine at least one potential route for navigating a vehicle within a geographic region. A score that measures a comfort level associated with the potential route can be determined, wherein the score is determined based on at least one sensor map that segments the geographic region into a grid of cells, and wherein the comfort level for the potential route is determined based at least in part on cells through which the vehicle travels while navigating along the potential route. A determination is made whether to use the potential route for navigating the vehicle based at least in part on the score.

  • Patent number: 11663377
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes generating a simulated sensor based on performance features associated with a sensor. The method includes determining a placement indicator specifying a location and orientation of the simulated sensor on a vehicle in a virtual environment associated with the vehicle. The method includes simulating, based on the performance features associated with the sensor, behavior of one or more emissions originating from the simulated sensor in the virtual environment. For each emission, the simulating includes determining an interaction of the emission with one or more simulated objects in the virtual environment. The method includes providing a representation of a capability of the sensor based on the simulated behavior of the emissions.

  • Patent number: 11614753
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can determine sensor data collected by a fleet of vehicles while navigating a geographic region, the sensor data including sensor readings generated at least in part by a surface interaction between one or more tires of each of the fleet of vehicles and a road surface of the geographic region. A sensor map representing the geographic region can be determined. The map can segment the geographic region into a grid of cells. Instances of the collected sensor data can be associated with cells in the grid of cells. A corresponding fingerprint can be determined for one or more cells in the grid of cells based at least in part on a plurality of instances of sensor data associated with the cell.

  • Publication number: 20220198957
    Abstract: Investing or trading, herein referred to as trading, is recognized worldwide as a means to financial success, as well as failure. Among the various widely accessible financial markets there are highly successful participants among many with poor or failed experience. Within each market there is widely available fundamental market information and analysts, more than a couple hundred common trading aids or indicators and expert advisors, dozens of brokerage firms with their market support, and other such commonly accessible market participation elements. Again, some participants thrive, while others experience marginal success or failure. Undoubtedly, some markets and relevant information, technology, tools, and techniques, among other supportive elements are better than others. Given what is equally accessible to all, there must remain another significant trading variable. That is the nature of the trader or trade psychology.

  • Publication number: 20220138847
    Abstract: Mentioning investing or trading, herein referred to as trading, in the general populous engenders common expressions related to financial risk, selective success, skepticism, and avoidance. Such reactions are not without justification. Despite increasingly available financial market access as well as improving trading technology and techniques for access to the financial markets, an individual's success is often marginal. Trading involves appropriate market choice for the participant, overall or fundamental event and market awareness, specific asset or technical analysis, aid and indicator choices and techniques, the type of training obtained, the amount of experience based on practice and live market participation, and attributes around the temperament and discipline of a participant. Participation in the market is multi-faceted and provides reasons that general success could be marginal.

  • Patent number: 11293624
    Abstract: A positional adjustment mechanism comprises a movable plate having first and second positioning actuators and a biasing member to bias the plate against the actuators. The movable plate has three flat surfaces facing the actuators and biasing member one of which is not substantially perpendicular to either of the other two. The biasing member ensures that the plate is held in contact with the actuators during adjustment. Also, an adjustable mount comprises a support and a fixed bar extending therefrom, an axially movable bar extending from the support and being axially movable relative thereto, and an element movably mounted to the fixed bar and movably mounted to the movable bar, the first element being selectively fixable relative to the fixed bar and selectively fixable relative to the movable bar. This arrangement allows a great degree of freedom in adjusting the position of the element as it can be selectively fixed to either or both of the fixed bar and movable bar.
