  • Publication number: 20190273572
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for transmitting or detecting primary synchronization signal. The receiver receives primary synchronization signal from a transmitter, and detects the sequence used in the received primary synchronization signal by using three root indexes. Here, the primary synchronization signal is generated by using a Zadoff-Chu sequence having one of the three root indexes. The three root indexes comprise a first index and a second index, and a sum of the first index and the second index corresponds to the length of the Zadoff-Chu sequence.

  • Patent number: 10375858
    Abstract: Disclosed is a housing for electronic/electrical that includes an inner panel and an outer panel, a strip of metal plate, and a strip of shape memory material. The inner panel and the outer panel are disposed parallel to each other at regular intervals to define an internal space. The strip of metal plate extends from an inner surface of the outer panel. The strip of shape memory material extends from an inner surface of the inner panel and is attached or detached to/from the metal plate on the outer panel while changing into an original straight shape or a bent shape according to a temperature variation. Here, when the temperature increase beyond a first transition temperature, the shape memory material straightens to form a heat transfer path. At a low temperature environment, the shape memory material bends and is separated from the metal plate to interrupt the heat transfer path.

  • Patent number: 10323452
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for activation of actuators based on sensed user characteristics, such as orientation. In some examples, an access control system may be configured to activate an actuator upon determining that an activation device is both in proximity to and has a similar orientation to the actuator. The access control system may be configured to determine orientation similarity by determining an orientation associated with the activation device, determining an orientation associated with the actuator, and comparing a difference between the two orientations to an activation threshold. The actuator may be associated with an entryway such as a building doorway, a room doorway, or a vehicle door, or may be associated with a container such as a safe or vehicle trunk.

  • Publication number: 20180324870
    Abstract: A base station transmits a random access response in response to a random access request (random access preamble) of a user equipment. The random access response indudes information about a time when the random access request is transmitted and sequence number information of the random access request (random access preamble). The user equipment checks whether the received random access response is the response of the random access request transmitted by the user equipment, using the information about the time when the random access request is transmitted and the sequence number information included in the received random access response.

  • Patent number: 10104497
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for detecting proximity of a client device to a base station in a wireless communication system. Example base station may include a proximity detector and an operation mode controller. The proximity detector may analyze a property of a signal transmitted by a client device to detect an envelope of the signal including a buzz-type waveform. If the envelope of the signal is determined to include a buzz-type waveform, the client device is determined to be within communication range of the base station. Further, the operation mode controller may convert a current operation mode of the base station to a particular operation mode that enables the base station to support communication by the client device. In some embodiments, the buzz-type waveform may be a waveform of an uplink control signal that is transmitted by the client device when it is not actively engaged in communication.
