  • Patent number: 11984010
    Abstract: A wearable medical device (e.g., wearable drug delivery pump) sends a request to another device for generation of an audible or vibratory notification at the other device, which is helpful when the wearable medical device is obscured by a user's clothing or the user is vision or hearing impaired. The other device receiving the request to generate a notification can be a remote controller or smartphone paired with the wearable medical device, or a smart watch or a Bluetooth (BT)-enabled headset or other device paired with the remote controller. The wearable medical device is configured with a BT stack that allows the device to pair with its controller in a secure bonded relationship, but to send signals requiring less security (e.g., requests for generation of notifications) to other devices (e.g., a BT-enabled headset or smart watch) using a more ubiquitous wireless protocol such as a standard BT protocol with broadcast mode.

  • Patent number: 11968064
    Abstract: Introduced here is at least one technique to better estimate interference at a receiver. The technique includes receiving a plurality of reference signals, which each have information indicative of noise. Thus, the technique further includes, for each reference signal, determining a noise estimation and determining a distance metric and log-likelihood ratio (LLR) of the noise estimation. Once the distance metric and LLR of each reference signal is determined, the receiver can determine a final LLR based on the distance metric and LLR of each reference signal. In this manner, a final LLR is determined. This technique can be applied by any device operating on MIMO technology.

The level of the interference to the second UE may be based on a path gain difference or a signal strength at the first UE associated with the signal forwarding to the first UE. The signal strength at the first UE associated with the signal forwarding to the first UE may correspond to an RSRP at the first UE. The node may stop the signal forwarding to the first UE based on the indication.
