  • Publication number: 20210289429
    Abstract: An approach for preventing electronic devices from repeatedly attempting to register or connect to a mobile network when they are not permitted to communicate using the mobile network. Embodiments determine whether the electronic device and/or associated SIM is permitted to communicate using the mobile network. In response to determining that the electronic device and/or SIM is not permitted to communicate using the mobile network, the contents of the SIM are modified to prevent the SIM from providing, to other components of the electronic device, communication data used to make a connection or authentication request to the mobile network.

  • Patent number: 10795156
    Abstract: An optical waveguide device for use in a head up display. The waveguide device provides pupil expansion in two dimensions. The waveguide device comprise a primary waveguide and a secondary waveguide, the secondary waveguide being positioned on a face of the primary waveguide. The secondary waveguide has a diffraction grating on a face opposite to the face which contacts the primary waveguide. The diffraction grating diffracts light into more than diffraction order. Rays diffracted into a non-zero order are trapped in the secondary waveguide by total internal reflection.

  • Patent number: 10248480
    Abstract: A system for determining a quota comprises an input interface, a candidate quota determiner, one or more quota modification determiners, and an output interface. The input interface is for receiving a quota request for an activity and receiving an estimation or an actual measurement of one or more operating parameters. A candidate quota determiner is for determining a candidate quota amount based at least in part on candidate quota parameters. The one or more quota modification determiners are for determining one or more quota modifications based on the estimation or the actual measurement of the one or more operating parameters. The output interface for providing a final quota amount based at least in part on the candidate quota amount and the one or more quota modifications.

  • Patent number: 10108012
    Abstract: A glare visor (13) for reducing ambient light intensity perceived by a wearer viewing a head-up display (3) employing display light (7) including a given wavelength(s) of light. The visor includes a visor body comprising optically transparent material which is partially absorbing of light of visible optical wavelengths thereby to reduce the intensity of ambient light transmitted therethrough to the wearer. A transparent optical coating (12) is formed upon a surface of the visor body which is partially transmissive of light of visible optical wavelengths amongst which it is preferentially transmissive of light of a sub-range of wavelengths for including therein the wavelength(s) of display light. This permits a perceived enhancement of contrast between display light (7) relative to ambient light (8).

  • Publication number: 20160284319
    Abstract: A display apparatus and method are provided for at least partially compensating for undesirable image degradation arising from the processing of a generated image prior to display at a viewing surface, such as a combiner. The degradation is such that a viewer perceives a reduction in contrast ratio of a portion of the image content appearing in one or more regions of the field of view of the display, for example against an external scene being viewed through the combiner. In the invention, control means are provided to at least partially compensate for the reduction in contrast ratio by decreasing the resolution of the portion of the generated image content intended for display in the region of perceived reduced contrast ratio prior to input to the processing function.
