  • Patent number: 12028887
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Generally, a user equipment (UE) may generate statistical modeling of sensing outcomes (e.g., may identify one or more measurement statistics), and may transmit values that are quantized based on the one or more measurement statistics. Measurement statistics may include one or more of mean and variance of sensing results (e.g., channel quality measurements such as signal to interference ratio (SIR)), auto-correlation of measurements or measurement statistics over time, auto-covariance, or the like. In some examples, a UE may incorporate channel measurement statistics into a waveform (e.g., the coordination report) or otherwise compress the measurements. The UE may measure its own self-interference, and may indicate (e.g., in the coordination message) resource availability that reflects the measured self-interference. A receiving UE may use the coordination message to schedule subsequent sidelink communications (e.g.

  • Patent number: 12021598
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for efficiently selecting beams for synchronization signal block (SSB) burst transmissions based on a condition. Techniques include selecting certain directions to transmit higher power beams and selecting certain directions to transmit lower power SSB burst transmissions. In some cases, an SSB burst parameter may be modified to use a reduced number of optimal SSB beams. The modified SSB burst parameter may have a reduced SSB burst duration, which may allow for reduced monitoring time by a UE and/or free up resources (that would otherwise be used for SSB transmissions) for data transmissions. Additional aspects relate generally to the beam management procedures in wireless communications systems. Some aspects more specifically relate to the selection of beams for communications to and from a UE and a network entity based on predicted mobility state information for a user equipment (UE).
