  • Patent number: 10821347
    Abstract: Virtual and augmented reality sports training environments are disclosed. A user interacts with virtual players in a simulated environment of a virtual reality sporting event. In some embodiments, the user's actions and decisions are monitored by the simulated environment. The environment evaluates the user's performance, and provides quantitative scoring based on the user's decisions and timing. Coaches and other users may design customized scenarios or plays to train and test users, and the resultant scores may be reviewed by the coach. In one application, real life pitchers and their pitching data are tracked and replicated in a simulated pitching environment. A team of users may practice against a simulation of a pitcher they are about to compete against, swinging at pitches that they would see in a real game. Such environments may maximize effective practice time for users, and help develop better players with improved decision-making skills.

  • Patent number: 10595290
    Abstract: A procedure for synchronization of re-configuration of RRC procedures between the radio base station and the UE is achieved by associating a new configuration to be used by a UE with an additional UE identity. The UE is normally identified by a first UE identity, but is informed in a re-configuration message that the UE also has the additional UE identity. The UE is identified by the additional UE identity when the new configuration is to be activated. Hence, when the radio base station detects that the UE responds to requests, which included the additional UE identity, the radio base station can conclude that the UE has activated the new configuration.

  • Patent number: 10230460
    Abstract: An Optical Link Management Function “OLMF” for obtaining an optical power level for an optical link between a first and a second optical transformation modules. The OLMF sends a first message instructing a first unit to feed a set of optical transmissions representing at least one bit pattern. The OLMF sends a second message instructing the first optical transformation module to transmit the set of optical transmissions at optical power levels in a range. The OLMF sends a third message instructing a second unit to register successful or unsuccessful decoding of the set of optical transmissions based on the bit pattern. The OLMF receives a set of indications representing successful or unsuccessful decoding of the set of optical transmissions at the optical power levels. The OLMF finds a lowest optical power level for which an optical transmission of the set on the optical link is successfully decoded.
