  • Publication number: 20190184568
    Abstract: A system includes a moveable element adapted to move relative to a coordinate system defined for a robot, an object detection transceiver unit adapted to be mounted on the moveable element, and a controller. The controller controls the object detection transceiver unit to emit a signal and obtain a return signal for an operational cell of the robot at each of a series of predetermined positions to emulate a transceiver aperture larger than an aperture of the object detection transceiver unit. A location corresponding to a marker present in the operational cell is determined from the return signals. A predetermined operation is carried out where the predetermined operation includes using the determined location to guide movement of the robot.

  • Publication number: 20190132101
    Abstract: The invention is directed to systems, methods, and computer program products for determining timing relationships of pilot and data in mobile network communications. Specifically, an uplink (UL) transmission is received at a base station (BS) from a user equipment (UE) in network communication with the BS via a communication channel. Based on the UL transmission, a channel coherence time is determined indicating a period of time during which the communication channel is considered to be substantially unchanged. In response, a total transmission duration is determined based on the channel coherence time indicating a period of time associated with transmission of a data frame.

  • Publication number: 20190069307
    Abstract: A method of operating a terminal device and a base station in a wireless telecommunications system to communicate with one another using a primary component carrier operating on radio resources within a first frequency band and a secondary component carrier operating on radio resources within a second frequency band. The terminal device makes measurements of radio usage in the second frequency band, e.g. by other devices which are not part of the wireless telecommunications system but which can also use radio resources within the second frequency band. The terminal device transmits an indication of the measurements to the base station, and on the basis if this the base station establishes a configuration setting for the secondary component carrier, for example in terms of frequency resources to use for the secondary component carrier.

The communication is on at least one narrowband carrier (311-1, 311-2) comprising resources (308) in a first spectrum (301) and operating according to a first radio access technology, e.g., Narrowband Internet of Things, NB-IoT. The first spectrum (301) is arranged at least partly within a second spectrum (302) on which communication between the at least one access node and a second terminal is executed on a wideband carrier (312). The wideband carrier (312) comprises resources (308) in the second spectrum (302) and operates according to a second radio access technology different to the first radio access technology, e.g., Machine-Type Communication, MTC, or evolved UMTS radio access, E-UTRA. In some examples, the first spectrum (301) and the second spectrum (302) both may comprise a shared spectrum.
