Publication number: US20220001756A1
Application number: 17/477,696

Abstract:
A method for controlling wireless power transfer (WPT), performed by an electric vehicle (EV) device receiving power from a supply device is provided. The method includes checking service details regarding at least one method for fine positioning and pairing between the supply device and the EV device and selecting a service. Fine positioning is performed with the supply device according to a pairing method associated with the selected service. Additionally, LF pairing is performed based on the selected service; an initial alignment check is performed using pre-charging power transmission; and LPE pairing is performed based on the selected service and a result of the initial alignment check.

Publication number: US20210409695A1
Application number: 17/473,365

Abstract:
Image decoding of decoding a sequence of coded pictures on a block-by-block basis is provided. The image decoding incudes decoding a first high-level syntax element from a bitstream to determine, at a sequence level, whether affine motion prediction is allowed. A second high-level syntax element is extracted for each of at least one coding tool from the bitstream depending on the first high-level syntax element. At a picture level, the method determines whether each of the at least one coding tool is allowed. The coding tool includes sample-by-sample adjustment of affine motion prediction samples.
