  • Publication number: 20210288721
    Abstract: A receiving unit (2020) generates a received frame from a modulated optical signal. The modulated optical signal is generated such that a transmission symbol is generated by mapping an encoded bit string obtained by encoding a transmission bit string to an m-dimensional symbol space, a transmission frame is generated by mapping the transmission symbol to an n-dimensional frame space (n<m), and an optical carrier wave is modulated by using the transmission frame. A converting unit (2040) generates candidate vectors (m-dimensional vectors belonging to a partial symbol space within the symbol space) by using a received frame. A first computing unit (2070) computes a probability of that the transmission symbol belonging to the partial symbol space is transmitted for each partial symbol space. A second computing unit (2080) computes a log-likelihood ratio of each bit of the encoded bit string by using the probability.

  • Patent number: 11072372
    Abstract: A front side member includes, at a front portion, a front section in which an upper flange joint protrudes outward in a lateral direction of the vehicle. A reinforcing plate is overlapped with and welded to a laterally-outward side surface of the front section. The reinforcing plate includes a flange that is overlapped with and welded to the upper flange joint of the front side member. A rear end of the reinforcing plate extends to the same position as a rear end of the front section or further rearward. The reinforcing plate reduces deformation of the front section and the upper flange joint, inhibiting collapse of the closed cross sectional structure of the front side member.
