  • Patent number: 8510442
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods are disclosed herein for implementing dormant mode with paging in a WLAN. Power savings in the computing device and reduction in traffic across the network are achieved by requiring a computing device to inform the WLAN of its location only when it crosses a paging area boundary or is to receive IP traffic. Dormant mode with paging is implemented in a protocol that supports dormant functionality and paging functionality but does not itself provide methods or standards for implementing such functionality, such as the IEEE 802.11. The methods and apparatuses disclosed herein provide the methods needed to implement dormant mode with paging in such a protocol. Generally, the methods and apparatuses for implementing dormant mode with paging basically include (1) establishing paging areas; (2) communicating access group information to a computing device; and (3) locating a computing device.

  • Patent number: 7831209
    Abstract: To provide a data transmitter-receiver bidirectional transmitting system, and data transmitting-receiving method capable of reducing influences of a transmission delay when performing bidirectional communication with an other-communication-party apparatus in an environment in which various states are dynamically changed depending on time. A data obtaining portion 11 of a terminal 10 obtains positional directional information D(Tn) and a time information obtaining portion 12 obtains time information Tn. The terminal 10 stores D(Tn) and Tn in a memory portion 13 and a transmitting portion 15 transmits D(Tn) and Tn to a server 20. A data generating portion 21 of the server 20 generates stereophonic data S(Tn) by using D(Tn), a time information copying portion 22 copies Tn, a transmitting portion 24 transmits S(Tn) and Tn to the terminal 10.

  • Patent number: 7627470
    Abstract: A speaking period required for a voice recognition processing is detected with a simple and robust approach. A speaking period is detected based on an EMG generated when a speaker speaks. A large amplitude is observed in an EMG as muscular activity is caused when a speaker speaks. By observing this, a speaking period can be detected. The EMG can be measured from the speaker's skin via electrodes provided on a mobile-type terminal. Since a mobile-type terminal is usually pressed to the skin for use, affinity between this use form and the present invention is very high.
