  • Publication number: 20190182675
    Abstract: An evolved Node B (eNB) serves as a primary serving cell (PCell) providing a primary component carrier (PCC) in a licensed spectrum to a user equipment (UE) in a carrier aggregation (CA) scheme. A secondary component carrier (SCC) is provided in an unlicensed spectrum. The eNB monitors parameters of bandwidths in the unlicensed spectrum, when at least one of the parameters indicates a change in availability of a select one of the bandwidths, the eNB generates a control indicator defining the change in availability of the bandwidth and broadcasts the control indicator to the UE, wherein the control indicator affects a modification in a transceiver of the UE associated with the bandwidth.

  • Patent number: 10305627
    Abstract: A wireless communication system is presented for adaptive uplink (UL) link adaptation (LA). The adaptive UL LA can include multiple outer loops, for which multiple block error rate (BLER) filtering is performed. Each of the multiple BLER filtering can be performed on groups or sub-groups of subframes, in which each group has the same or similar coding characteristics. For example, one group in TD-LTE could be subframes with sounding reference signal (SRS) and another group could be subframes without SRS. Each of the multiple BLER filtering can use the same or different BLER algorithm, BLER target and/or BLER parameters.

  • Patent number: 9994774
    Abstract: A pyrolysis plant 20 comprises a grinding pyrolyzer 22, being a machine or apparatus in which both particle size reduction and pyrolysis occur simultaneously. Plant 20 also comprises a bin (hopper) 30 for holding wet particulate biomass feedstock. Chute 32 leads from the bin 30 to a biomass dryer 34 which reduces moisture content of the feedstock as low as possible, e.g., to below about 10. Dried feedstock is conveyed from dryer 34 via line 36 to a dried biomass feedstock hopper 38. Dried feedstock is fed from hopper 38 into a chute 40 which leads to an inlet trunnion 42 of grinding pyrolyzer 22. A discharge trunnion 44 of grinding pyrolyzer 22 leads to a char holder 60 for collecting char particles and a condensation train 62 for condensing vapor generated by the pyrolysis to produce oil.

  • Patent number: 9875386
    Abstract: Object recognition can be improved by verifying a geometric consistency between matching interesting points pairs of two images, as objects with the images are more likely to match when the matching interesting points pairs are geometrically consistent. The geometric consistency between matching interesting points pairs can be verified in accordance with a topology code distance vector (D). The topology code distance vector (D) may be evaluated in accordance with a decision tree classifier, which may be trained in accordance with previous or historic topology code distance vectors. The topology code distance vector (D) may be computed from a subset of matching interesting points pairs having the shortest matching distance.
