  • Publication number: 20240145838
    Abstract: A high power density battery pack for a solar-electric vehicle includes a frame with compartments for battery modules arranged therein. The modules are in thermal communication with a unitary cooling plate disposed underneath. The modules include an array of secondary cells arranged in bottom and top carriers. The bottoms of the cells are in thermal communication with a heat spreader. The cells are oriented with their electrodes in a common plane and electrically isolated by the top carrier. One or more potting materials fills the interstitial spaces between the cells. The cells are connected in parallel and series by interconnects. A module monitoring system tracks the voltage and temperature of the modules. Modules are connected in series by intra-row and inter-row interconnects. A battery management system provides a solar charging mode for both stationary and in-motion vehicle operation, and a low-power quiescent mode when the vehicle is powered down.

  • Publication number: 20240113821
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for efficient signaling of sidelink radio resources. A first terminal device selects a subset of radio resources from a set of candidate radio resources. The first terminal device determines a set of resource indices for the subset of radio resources based at least partly on a pre-defined enumeration order of the set of candidate radio resources in time and frequency. The first terminal device determines a first resource indication value indicating at least the set of resource indices. The first terminal device transmits the first resource indication value to one or more second terminal devices.

  • Patent number: 11901935
    Abstract: The present application relates to wireless communications suitable for smart manufacturing and industrial automation. In particular, the application proposes a wireless communication device (UE) and a network device (BS), in particular suitable for cyclic communication. The BS is configured to provide a first information defining a hopping sequence to a UE, and to provide a second information to the UE defining when the hopping sequence should be repeated, in particular periodically repeated. The UE is accordingly configured to receive the first information from the BS, and to receive the second information from the BS. The hopping sequence specifies at least two spatial resources and/or at least two radio resources, which the UE is configured to use for transmissions to and/or from the BS.

  • Patent number: 11870781
    Abstract: Systems and methods authenticate an end user of an enterprise with an external service provider. The enterprise comprises an identity provider and an entitlements data store that communicate via web services calls. The identity provider makes a determination of whether an end user is authorized to access the external service provider based on: (i) authentication of the end user by the identity provider; and (ii) data from the entitlements data store for the end user with respect to the external service provider. Upon a determination by the identity provider that the end user is authorized to access the external service provider, the identity provider send a SAML token to the end user. The SAML token comprises an XML representation of entitlement information for the end user for the external service provider.
