  • Publication number: 20190169383
    Abstract: A water soluble film useful in unit-dose chemical packaging is disclosed. The film may include: a water soluble saccharide and a polyvinyl alcohol copolymer consisting essentially of: (a) from 80 to 99 mole percent of vinyl alcohol and vinyl ester monomer; and (b) from 1 to 20 mole percent of a pyrrolidone comonomer. Such compositions may be used to provide a water-soluble film simultaneously satisfying requirements in regard to water solubility, biodegradability, and physical properties, even when used for packaging a broad range of harsh, oxidizing chemicals.

  • Publication number: 20190108468
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to a new mass transit system in which cooperative transit vehicles follow dynamic routes and flexible schedules and perform coordinated transfers to provide personalized transit trips which are faster, more convenient, and more efficient than traditional public transportation services with fixed routes and rigid schedules. Passengers use rider devices such as a smart phone to request transit trips and receive personalized transit plans including pickup, transfer, and drop off instructions in real time. A transit coordination center continuously tracks transit vehicles and passengers, process trip requests, offers personalized transit plans, calculates dynamic transit routes and transfer points, and sends routing and ride instructions to coordinate transit vehicles and passengers.

  • Publication number: 20180317236
    Abstract: Techniques and apparatus for implementing a radio link control (RLC) layer and/or packet data convergence protocol (PDCP) layer window advance with holes (e.g., one or more missing packets) are provided. One technique includes generating a sequence of packets for transmission to an apparatus. A determination of whether to request the apparatus to at least temporarily ignore missing packets from the sequence is made based on one or more criteria. A message with an indication of the determination is transmitted to the apparatus. The apparatus may receive the sequence of packets, detect missing packets in the sequence, and process the sequence of packets in accordance with the indication in the received message.

  • Publication number: 20180250652
    Abstract: The disclosure generally relates to CCS sorbents, particularly for CO2/H2O displacement desorption process. The sorbents include an aluminum oxide support that includes two alkali metal salts impregnated on the support. The two alkali metals include a potassium metal salts and a second alkali metal salt which is not potassium. The second metal salt disrupts poisoning effects that degrade sorbent lifetime. The sorbents demonstrate improved CO2 loadings and better H2O/CO2 ratios, as well as improved stability. Compositions and methods of making are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20180250654
    Abstract: The disclosure generally relates to CCS sorbents, particularly for CO2/H2O displacement desorption process. The sorbent includes an aluminum oxide support and an alkali metal salt impregnated on the support. The support can be prepared by creating and extruding a dough to create an extrudate, which is then drying and calcined to form the support. Calcination temperatures can be between about 120° C. and 500° C., preferably about 200° C. to about 400° C. The sorbents demonstrate improved CO2 loadings and better H2O/CO2 ratios, as well as improved stability. Compositions and methods of making are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20180250653
    Abstract: The disclosure generally relates to CCS sorbents, particularly for CO2/H2O displacement desorption process. The sorbent includes an aluminum oxide support and an alkali metal salt impregnated on the support, and a silicon modification of the sorbent to reduce water uptake by the sorbent and make it more hydrophobic. The silicon modification can be an organosilyl moiety added after the initial sorbent is complete, or a silica source added to the aluminum oxide structure, typically via impregnation. The sorbents demonstrate better H2O/CO2 ratios. Compositions and methods of making are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10044478
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to pseudo-randomization of unused resources at a medium access control layer (MAC) of a user equipment (UE). For example, the disclosure presents a method and an apparatus for determining that an uplink (UL) resource grant, associated with a first radio access technology (RAT), for the UE results in unused resources where there are a greater number of resources than available data for transmission at the UE, wherein the UE is configured to receive information associated with a second RAT, and wherein the first RAT is different from the second RAT, populating the unused resources, at a medium access control (MAC) layer, with pseudo-randomized bits, and transmitting at least a portion of the available data and the populated unused resources using the UL resource grant associated with the first RAT. As such, pseudo-randomization of unused resources at a medium access control layer (MAC) of a UE may be achieved.

  • Publication number: 20180205808
    Abstract: Techniques are described for wireless communication. One method includes receiving, at a medium access control (MAC) entity, protocol data units (PDUs) corresponding to one or more Internet protocol (IP) flows, routing the PDUs from the MAC entity to respective radio link control (RLC) entities based on a logical channel prioritization, and forwarding the PDUs from respective RLC entities to one or more packet data convergence protocol (PDCP) entities mapped to each RLC entity. Another method includes receiving, at a protocol layer entity above an RLC layer of a transmitting device, a PDU, labeling the PDU with a unique PDCP instance identifier packet, and passing the PDU to a protocol layer entity below the PDCP layer of the transmitting device.
