Method for maintaining service continuity in heterogeneous communications system

Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a method for maintaining service continuity in heterogeneous communication system, including: when a bearer is established on a senb/senb's cell for a ue or the ue tracking area is updated due to a bearer transfer, a menb sends a mme a serving identifier of a senb/senb's cell where the ue is located or a serving identifier of a enb/cell which a user plane bearer of the ue is on; the mme determines a ta identifier/enb identifier which the ue bearer is in, including a ta identifier/enb identifier of the senb's cell where the ue is located, according to received serving identifier. On one hand, the mme may determine whether a ue moves out of the local home network according to the ta of the ue, and whether it is necessary to release the sipto@ln bearer.

Opacity filter for display device

An optical see-through head-mounted display device includes a see-through lens which combines an augmented reality image with light from a real-world scene, while an opacity filter is used to selectively block portions of the real-world scene so that the augmented reality image appears more distinctly. The opacity filter can be a see-through lcd panel, for instance, where each pixel of the lcd panel can be selectively controlled to be transmissive or opaque, based on a size, shape and position of the augmented reality image.
