  • Patent number: 11160076
    Abstract: Provided is a transmitter which improves the flexibility of SRS resource allocation without increasing the amount of signaling for notifying the cyclic shift amount. In the transmitter, with regard to each basic shift amount candidate group having a basic shift amount from 0 to N?1, a transmission control unit (206) specifies the actual shift amount imparted to a cyclic shift sequence used in scrambling a reference signal transmitted from each antenna port, said specification being performed based on a table in which cyclic shift amount candidates correspond to each antenna port, and based on setting information transmitted from a base station (100). With regard to basic shift amount candidates for shift amount X, the table differentiates between an offset pattern comprising offset values for cyclic shift amount candidates corresponding to each antenna port and an offset pattern corresponding to basic shift amount candidates of X+N/2.

  • Patent number: 11145311
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes: a speech obtainer which obtains speech of a user; a first controller which, when the first controller recognizes that the speech obtained by the speech obtainer is a first activation word, outputs a speech signal corresponding to a second activation word different from the first activation word; and a second controller which performs an activation process for starting transmission of the speech signal of the speech obtained by the speech obtainer to a VPA cloud server when the second controller recognizes that the speech signal output by the first controller indicates the second activation word.

  • Publication number: 20210248902
    Abstract: A tag measurement environment evaluation device includes a processor and a memory storing a program. The program is configured to, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to determine a moving tag evaluation value of each of a plurality of wireless tags based on a radio wave transmitted from each of the wireless tags and received by a tag reader configured to communicate with each of the wireless tags, and determine whether a measurement environment is suitable for a moving tag detection based on the moving tag evaluation values.

  • Patent number: 11030424
    Abstract: A configuration which can easily discriminate a moving wireless (radio) tag from a stationary wireless (radio) tag. The configuration uses an antenna to measure phases of response waves received from a wireless tag. Based on the measurements, the configuration measures changes in distance from the wireless tag to the antenna and detects travel of the wireless tag. Based on the measurements, the configuration measures changes in velocity of the wireless tag relative to the antenna. A wireless tag having a rate of changes in signs of the velocity, of not less than a predetermined value in the measured velocity changes, is detected as being a stationary tag.

  • Publication number: 20210010292
    Abstract: [PROBLEMS] Providing a house by which exhaust heat from equipment provided in a wall of the house does not adversely affect the environment in a living space, the maintenance, management, and update of the equipment can be easily performed, and crime prevention performance of an accommodating place of the equipment can be improved. [SOLUTIONS] The exhaust heat from the equipment 48 accommodated in the hollow portion 37 can be released to the second space 6 of the garage. Further, the electronic lock 45 of the door 43 for opening and closing the outdoor side opening portion 35 of the hollow portion 37 can be unlocked only for a preset time. Therefore, since unlocking is disabled except for the preset time, the maintenance, management, and update of the equipment 48 can be easily performed, and the crime prevention performance can be further improved.

  • Patent number: 10621395
    Abstract: In a configuration for detection of a movement state of a radio tag using a phase difference of a response wave from the radio tag, a phase ?[i] and a measurement time t[i] of a response wave from a radio tag measured are sequentially stored in a memory. A difference from a previous phase and a difference from a previous measurement time with respect to each phase ?[i] stored in the memory are calculated as a phase difference ??[i] and a time difference ?t[i]. A phase addition value ?sum[i] obtained by cumulatively adding a plurality of the phase differences ??[i] is calculated so as to correct a phase difference in which the corresponding time difference ?t[i] among the calculated plurality of the phase differences ??[i] exceeds a time threshold tsa [i], whereby the movement state of the radio tag is detected based upon the calculated phase addition value ?sum[i].

  • Patent number: 10339809
    Abstract: A safety confirmation assist device is equipped with a presenting unit which presents visible information at a position that a driver of a vehicle can recognize it visually, an object detection unit which detects an object approaching the vehicle; and a control unit which controls the presenting unit, if the object detection unit detects the object, to present the visible information moving in a same direction as a left-right component of a direction in which the object is approaching the vehicle while moving the visible information. The control unit controls the presenting unit so that a movement range of the visible information is located on only the left side or the right side, which is the same side of the vehicle as the object is located, of a boundary that defines the left side and the right side for the driver.
