  • Patent number: 10389446
    Abstract: A method includes capturing images with an image sensor while switching the shutter speed of the image sensor between a first speed and a second, higher speed. When a captured subject is a barcode, a barcode image is obtained when the shutter speed is the first speed, and barcode information is obtained by decoding the barcode in the image. When a captured subject is a light source, a bright line image including bright lines corresponding to a plurality of exposure lines included in the image sensor is obtained when the shutter speed is the second speed, and a visible light signal is obtained as visible light information by decoding a pattern of the bright lines in the obtained bright line image. The method also includes displaying an image obtained through capturing performed when the shutter speed is the first speed.

  • Patent number: 10270636
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a wireless communication apparatus may include, but is not limited to, a pilot inserter, a segment divider, a phase rotator, and a first adder. The pilot inserter inserts first and second pilot symbols into a symbol stream. The segment divider divides into a plurality of segments a plurality of subcarriers. Each of the subcarriers is allocated with a respective one of the symbols included in the symbol stream into which the first and second pilot symbols have been inserted. The phase rotator performs, for each segment, a phase rotation to all of the symbols, except for a predetermined one of the first and second pilot symbols, included in the symbol stream. The first adder adds together signals corresponding to the subcarriers included in the plurality of segments to which the phase rotation has been performed by the phase rotator to generate a transmission signal.

  • Patent number: 10159042
    Abstract: A wireless communication device includes: controlling circuitry configured to selectively switch an operating channel between a first channel and a second channel; and a transmitter configured to transmit a first beacon signal through the first channel at a first cycle and transmit a second beacon signal through the second channel at a second cycle. A first period during which transmission/reception of a signal is possible and a second period during which transmission/reception of a signal is not performed are set for the second channel within a transmission interval of second beacon signals. The controlling circuitry switches the operating channel from the second channel to the first channel during the second period. The transmitter transmits the first beacon signal through the first channel during the second period. The controlling circuitry switches the operating channel from the first channel to the second channel by an end of the second period.

  • Patent number: 10091041
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a wireless communication apparatus may include, but is not limited to, a segment divider, a reference symbol inserter, a phase rotator, an adder, and a peak-to-average power ratio evaluator. The reference symbol inserter inserts at least one reference symbol having a phase into at least one of the subcarrier segments. The phase rotator performs respective phase rotations to the subcarrier segments, based at least in part on a plurality of different combination patterns, each of the different combination patterns identifying a respective phase rotation to the subcarrier segments. The peak-to-average power ratio evaluator calculates, for each of the plurality of different combination patterns, a peak-to-average power ratio of the transmission signals generated. The peak-to-average power ratio evaluator selects, from the transmission signals, a transmission signal having a smallest peak-to-average power ratio among the plurality of peak-to-average power ratios calculated.
