|20120269121||BASE STATION APPARATUS FOR TRANSMITTING OR RECEIVING A SIGNAL INCLUDING PREDETERMINED INFORMATION - A setting unit defines the first frame and the second frame and selects use of the first frame or the second frame. A generation unit generates control information which is defined by the same format regardless of the selection by the setting unit and which includes at least information related to the base station broadcast period. The generation unit puts information related to the ratio between the priority period and the general period into the control information and reflects the selection by the setting unit to the ratio. The modem unit and the RF unit broadcast a packet signal including the control information in the base station broadcast period.||10-25-2012|
|20110019693||ADAPTIVE NETWORK SYSTEM WITH ONLINE LEARNING AND AUTONOMOUS CROSS-LAYER OPTIMIZATION FOR DELAY-SENSITIVE APPLICATIONS - A network system providing highly reliable transmission quality for delay-sensitive applications with online learning and cross-layer optimization is disclosed. Each protocol layer is deployed to select its own optimization strategies, and cooperates with other layers to maximize the overall utility. This framework adheres to defined layered network architecture, allows layers to determine their own protocol parameters, and exchange only limited information with other layers. The network system considers heterogeneous and dynamically changing characteristics of delay-sensitive applications and the underlying time-varying network conditions, to perform cross-layer optimization. Data units (DUs), both independently decodable DUs and interdependent DUs, are considered. The optimization considers how the cross-layer strategies selected for one DU will impact its neighboring DUs and the DUs that depend on it. While attributes of future DU and network conditions may be unknown in real-time applications, the impact of current cross-layer actions on future DUs can be characterized by a state-value function in the Markov decision process (MDP) framework. Based on the dynamic programming solution to the MDP, the network system utilizes a low-complexity cross-layer optimization algorithm using online learning for each DU transmission.||01-27-2011|
|20110019037||Electronic Camera - An electronic camera includes an imager. An imager outputs an image signal that is based on electric charges produced on an imaging surface having an optical black area. A clamper clamps the image signal outputted from the imager by referring to a signal level of the optical black area. A processor processes the image signal outputted from the clamper by referring to a parameter setting. A restrictor restricts behavior of the clamper corresponding to a specific area allocated to the optical black area. An adjustor adjusts the parameter setting based on an output of the clamper corresponding to the restricting process of the restrictor.||01-27-2011|
