  • Patent number: 11508243
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided for use in wireless communication devices to provide a capability for vehicles to actively perform traffic planning with regard to other vehicles, for example, within a region comprising an intersection and possibly wherein the intersection is not associated with a device or service for such or similar purposes. Such underlying techniques may reduce traffic congestion in certain instances by allowing two or more vehicles to negotiate or otherwise coordinate safe traversal within a region comprising an intersection. Moreover, the traffic planning techniques may be of use for a variety and/or mixture of different types of vehicles, paths, intersections, etc.

  • Patent number: 11480972
    Abstract: A method includes determining a current state of an environment of an autonomous agent, such as a vehicle. The method also includes determining, via a first neural network, a set of actions based on the current state. The method further includes determining whether further analysis of the set of actions is desired. The method selects an action from the set of actions using a model-based solution based on a reward and a risk of the action when further analysis is desired. The method also includes selecting the action from the set of actions according to a metric when further analysis is not desired. The method controls the autonomous agent to perform the selected action.

  • Patent number: 11284308
    Abstract: A medium reservation framework is disclosed for coexistence of coordinated and uncoordinated wireless networks in licensed spectrum and shared spectrum. The proposed medium reservation framework organically takes into account operating regimes with different numbers of Tx/Rx antennas per node, provides flexibility in trading off medium contention aggressiveness and power saving, leverages the inherent synchronization nature of NR, and covers both coordinated and uncoordinated operation scenarios. Various aspects of the medium reservation framework may be centered on one or more combinations of some basic building blocks, such as an operation grid, synchronization signals, and reservation messages, such as a reservation request signal (RRQ) and one or more a reservation response signals (RRS).

    Abstract: Techniques for co-existence between wireless Radio Access Technologies (RATs) are disclosed. During an active period of a Discontinuous Transmission (DTX) communication pattern, a first signal may be transmitted during a first subframe and a second signal may be transmitted during a second subframe, while during an inactive period the first signal may be transmitted during the first subframe and the second signal may be omitted during the second subframe. Retransmission of one or more packets may take place over a subset of less than all retransmission opportunities based on the DTX communication pattern. A Secondary Cell (SCell) may be reconfigured as the Primary Cell (PCell) and the PCell may be reconfigured as the SCell for one or more access terminals based on a load balancing condition or a channel selection condition.
