  • Patent number: 10405339
    Abstract: A method by a user equipment (UE) is described. The method includes instructing a physical layer of the UE to signal a scheduling request (SR) on a Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) based on whether scheduling request counter is less than the maximum number of scheduling request transmission, and transmitting, to an evolved Node B (eNB), the SR on either of the PUCCH on a primary cell and the PUCCH on a PUCCH secondary cell. The scheduling request counter is incremented in a case that the scheduling request counter is less than the maximum number of scheduling request transmission.

  • Patent number: 10343675
    Abstract: A vehicle control system to operate a vehicle autonomously with improved energy efficiency and ride quality is provided. A controller is configured to set a limit value of an operating point of an engine to reduce noises and vibrations.
