  • Publication number: 20220394264
    Abstract: An encoder includes: circuitry; and memory coupled to the circuitry. In the encoder, in operation, the circuitry: performs calculation that involves multiplication and from which a plurality of discrete integers are yieldable as a calculation result, to derive one of the plurality of discrete integers as a quantization parameter threshold; and when orthogonal transform is skipped for a current block of an image, determines a quantization parameter value for the current block, using the quantization parameter threshold. The calculation involves multiplying a first value by a first fixed value, the first value and the first fixed value being each an integer. The first value is a limit value to be included in a header of a bitstream.

  • Patent number: 11512976
    Abstract: The disclosure discloses a latitude-free initial alignment method under a swaying base based on gradient descent optimization. Firstly, swaying base latitude-free alignment is regarded as a Wahba attitude determination problem to inhibit device noise interference, and an objective function is established based on a gravitational acceleration vector under an earth system; then an exact solution of the objective function is obtained through a gradient descent optimization method, and inertial system conversion quaternion estimation is achieved under the latitude-free condition; and finally, an attitude quaternion is determined by only using information of an accelerometer and a gyroscope of a strapdown attitude heading reference system, and therefore latitude-free initial alignment under the swaying base is achieved.

  • Publication number: 20220353846
    Abstract: A receive (Rx) UE performs blind detection to decode a first-stage Sidelink Control Information (SCI) in a received signal. The first-stage SCI contains control information for the Rx UE to locate time-and-frequency resources used by a transmit (Tx) UE. The time-and-frequency resources are used to transmit the first-stage SCI and a second-stage SCI via a Physical Sidelink Control Channel (PSCCH) and to transmit data via a Physical Sidelink Shared Channel (PSSCH) associated with the PSCCH. The Rx UE locates the second-stage SCI in the time-and-frequency resources based on the first-stage SCI. The second-stage SCI contains additional control information from the Tx UE to the Rx UE for the sidelink V2X communication. The Rx UE decodes the second-stage SCI using at least in part an identifier which identifies the Rx UE as a destination of the received signal.

  • Publication number: 20220337983
    Abstract: For sidelink vehicle-to-everything (V2X) transmission, a first user equipment (UE) obtains time-and-frequency resources that are bounded by two subchannel boundaries and two slot boundaries. The first UE transmits encoded control information to a second UE in a Physical Sidelink Control Channel (PSCCH) that occupies a first portion of the time-and-frequency resources starting from a lowest resource block (RB) in a lowest subchannel and from an earliest symbol available for sidelink control and data transmission. The first UE further transmits encoded data to the second UE in a Physical Sidelink Shared Channel (PSSCH) that occupies a second portion of the time-frequency resources. The second portion includes (a) a first set of RBs in the same symbols as the PSCCH and not used by the PSCCH, and (b) a second set of RBs in symbols not used by the PSCCH.
