  • Patent number: 11906648
    Abstract: An apparatus obtains a set of radio data comprising signal strength related values for radio signals transmitted by a transmitter with an association of each signal strength related value with a representation of a geographical location. The apparatus applies a frequency transform to the obtained set of radio data to obtain transform coefficients, each transform coefficient comprising a transform index and an associated transform value. The apparatus selects a subset of transform indices having more significant transform values than the remaining transform indices and compresses the transform indices by encoding each transform index exploiting a probability of occurrence of an index value of a respective transform index. The same or another apparatus decodes the compressed transform indices again for use in position operations.

  • Patent number: 11621802
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for processing code blocks as implemented by a baseband processor. The method involves performing a cyclic redundancy check on decoded and deinterleaved code blocks until one fails its CRC check. On first failure the baseband processor requests a retransmission of the code blocks and resumes CRC checks on the retransmitted code blocks, beginning at the code block that had failed. In the event of subsequent failures, the baseband processor performs a soft combine on the failed retransmitted block with its original transmitted counterpart. Only if the soft combined code block fails does the baseband processor request another retransmission. In this case, subsequent CRC failures result in soft combines of three corresponding code words, making the process more robust. The method reduces the number of retransmissions as well as the computing resources needed for processing incoming code blocks.

  • Patent number: 11509419
    Abstract: This disclosure provides methods, devices and systems for acknowledgement and retransmission, and more specifically, to methods, devices and systems that enable a secondary wireless channel to provide acknowledgements of data transmitted on a primary wireless channel concurrently with the reception of additional data on the primary wireless channel. In some implementations, a transmitting device may transmit wireless packets including multiple codewords to a receiving device via a first wireless channel. The receiving device may attempt to decode the received codewords based on primary information in the codewords. The receiving device may then transmit to the transmitting device, via a second wireless channel, a codeword acknowledgement that identifies codewords that the receiving device did not successfully decode. The transmitting device may then transmit parity information to the receiving device via the first wireless channel that aids the receiving device in decoding the identified codewords.

  • Patent number: 11463296
    Abstract: Disclosed are procedures for measuring the modulation quality of each message resource element in a failed 5G or 6G communication modulated according to pulse-amplitude modulation, thereby revealing the most likely fault locations in the message. A second copy of the message can be merged by selecting the highest quality message elements from each version, where the quality is related to how far each message element's modulation deviates from the calibrated “states” of the modulation scheme. The receiver may also determine directional information based on the modulation of each message element, and may compare versions to determine the most likely correct state of each message element. Such strategies may directly recover the original message, or may greatly reduce the number of variations that need to be tested.

    Abstract: When predicting required component service in an imaging device such as a magnetic resonance (MR) imaging device (12), component parameters such as coil voltage, phase lock lost (PLL) events, etc. are sampled to monitor system components. Voltage samples are filtered according to their temporal proximity to coil plug-in and unplug events to generate a filtered data set that is analyzed by a processor (46) to determine whether to transmit a fault report. A service recommendation is received based on the transmitted report and includes a root cause diagnosis and service recommendation that is output to a user interface (50).
