  • Patent number: 10009828
    Abstract: The present invention is designed so that, when a plurality of inter-terminal discovery signals with varying numbers of information bits are used in a radio communication system in which inter-terminal communication is carried out, user terminals can be discovered based on the inter-terminal discovery signals. According to the inter-terminal communication method of the present invention, a user terminal (#1) determines the signal format of a discovery signal based on the number of information bits of the discovery signal, transmits the discovery signal based on the signal format, and also transmits signal format information to represent this signal format. A user terminal (#2) receives the signal format information from the user terminal (#1), and, based on the signal format represented by the signal format information, detects the discovery signal.

  • Publication number: 20180108049
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a system that attempts to reconcile diverse goals and re-cast the goals into something that is quantifiable and optimizable. One way to reconcile diverse goals is by converting these “constraints”—with the huge problems of feasibility—into errors that can be minimized. This disclosure also presents solutions for rate constraints which previously have not been dealt with. The resulting system enables advertisers to dynamically adjust their campaign based on the needs of the moment. Such a system can have advantages in terms of controllability, smoothness, as well as avoiding hard stop conditions that plague the constraint-based approach. In order to achieve this result, solutions are presented for problems of pacing, viewability prediction, and most particularly, error minimization.
