Abstract

According to an image forming device according to the disclosure, a required toner amount is calculated based on image data. A toner replenishment device replenishes a development device with toner of a first replenishment amount included in the required toner amount. Toner of the remaining second replenishment amount included in the required toner amount is replenished, based on a toner concentration detection value of a toner concentration sensor. When the image forming device stands continuously unused for a predetermined threshold time or longer, the toner of the second replenishment amount is not replenished during a time period from when an image forming process is started immediately after the unused time, until a specific time elapses.

Abstract

The amount of memory required for CCLM prediction is reduced. The CCLM prediction parameter derivation unit (310442) derives a scale shift value corresponding to a luma difference value, and derives a CCLM prediction parameter, by shifting, by using the scale shift value, a value obtained by multiplying a value of a table referred to with a value obtained by performing right shift of the luma difference value by the scale shift value as an index and a chroma difference value. In addition, in a case of deriving a prediction image, a bit width is reduced by adaptively deriving a shift amount of a linear prediction parameter from the chroma difference value.

Abstract

A device for deriving prediction sample values for encoding data is provided. The device includes one or more processors, and one or more non-transitory computer-readable media coupled to the one or more processors and storing one or more computer-executable instructions. When the computer-executable instructions are executed by at least one of the one or more processors, the computer-executable instructions cause the device to encode a reference wraparound offset syntax specifying an offset used for computing a horizontal wrap-around position, to derive a luma location based on a product of a value of the reference wraparound offset syntax and a minimum coding block size, and to derive a predicted luma sample value by using the luma location. A maximum value of the reference wraparound offset syntax is determined based on a quotient obtained by dividing a width of each decoded picture by the minimum coding block size.

A terminal apparatus includes: a reception unit configured to receive an RRC reconfiguration message including a DRB configuration and a processing unit, wherein the processing unit establishes an SDAP entity based on conditions that a DRB identity included in the DRB configuration is not part of a configuration of the terminal apparatus, an SDAP configuration is included in the DRB configuration, and an SDAP entity corresponding to a PDU session information element included in the SDAP configuration does not exist, and indicates establishment of a user-plane resource for a PDU session to an upper layer based on an additional condition that the SDAP entity corresponding to the PDU session information element does not exist before the RRC reconfiguration message is received.

Abstract

The information processing apparatus includes a display. The information processing apparatus accepts user operations via a GUI (graphical user interface) displayed on the display. When the service ends, the forgotten item notification screen is displayed on the display. In the forgotten item notification screen, a forgotten item reminder unit is provided for reminding a user who left behind a reminder target item, including the property of the user used in connection with the service. An individual reminder section is provided in a forgotten item reminder unit, to give an individual reminder to prevent the occurrence of leaving behind of each reminder target item, for a first-type item for which retrieval cannot be detected and a second-type item for which retrieval can be detected but which has not been retrieved, from among the reminder target items.

Abstract

A UE capable of performing communication via a satellite receives a wait range via a first satellite from a first PLMN. In a case that the UE becomes able to perform communication via a second satellite connected to the first PLMN after becoming unable to perform communication via the first satellite, the UE selects the first PLMN, generates a wait timer based on the wait range, and starts a timer using the wait timer. In a case that an emergency call is made during the timer running, the UE stops the timer and performs a registration procedure for the emergency call. In a case that an emergency call is not made during the timer running, the UE performs the registration procedure after the timer expires.

Abstract

In a UE configuration update procedure initiated by a network, when the UE is connected to the network via a satellite, one or more forbidden tracking area identities (TAIs) in a 5G system (5GS) forbidden tracking area information element for roaming and/or regional provision of service are included and transmitted in a configuration update command message transmitted by a 5G core network to the UE to provide an appropriate procedure for updating a tracking area identity (TAI) list stored in the UE while the UE in a 5GMM connected mode maintains a registered state.

Abstract

A terminal apparatus for communicating with a second terminal apparatus via a first terminal apparatus. The third terminal apparatus receives a sidelink transmission from the second terminal apparatus to the first terminal apparatus, measures a sidelink Reference Signal Received Power (SL-RSRP) from the received sidelink transmission, and determines whether the SL-RSRP is equal to or greater than a threshold, and notifies a higher layer that the second terminal apparatus is in proximity in a case that the SL-RSRP is determined to be equal to or greater than the threshold, and does not notify the higher layer that the second terminal apparatus is in proximity in a case that the SL-RSRP is not determined to be equal to or greater than the threshold.

Abstract

A terminal apparatus for communicating with a first terminal apparatus and a second terminal apparatus is responsible to relay communication between the first terminal apparatus and the second terminal apparatus. The terminal apparatus measures a sidelink Reference Signal Received Power (SL-RSRP) in each of communication with the first terminal apparatus and communication with the second terminal apparatus, and determines whether the two SL-RSRPs are equal to or greater than a threshold and notifies the first terminal apparatus that the first terminal apparatus and the second terminal apparatus are in proximity in a case that the two SL-RSRPs are determined to be equal to or greater than the threshold, and does not notify the first terminal apparatus that the first terminal apparatus and the second terminal apparatus are in proximity in a case that the two SL-RSRPs are not determined to be equal to or greater than the threshold.

A user equipment (UE) is described. The UE includes a processor configured to determine an uplink control information (UCI) multiplexing order for hybrid automatic repeat request-acknowledgement (HARQ-ACK) with different priorities and scheduling request (SR). The processor is also configured to multiplex the HARQ-ACK and the SR. The UE also includes transmitting circuitry configured to transmit the multiplexed HARQ-ACK and SR on a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH).
