  • Publication number: 20220369137
    Abstract: According to certain embodiments, a wireless device is configured to operate in a regular-power mode and a low-power mode, and a method of detecting wireless device movement includes: performing a link characterization measurement in the low-power mode using a low-power radio; determining, based on the low-power radio link characterization measurement, that the wireless device is not stationary; and performing radio resource measurements in the regular-power mode. In particular embodiments, performing the link characterization measurement using the low-power radio includes measuring a stationary reference signal (e.g., secondary synchronization signal (SSS)). Measuring the stationary reference signal uses a time-domain correlation receiver on the stationary reference signal.

  • Publication number: 20220353809
    Abstract: A wireless device, such as a user equipment, UE, determines (410) a first sleep opportunity for the wireless device and evaluates (420) one or more energy-related parameters for each of a plurality of possible sleep modes for the wireless device. The plurality of possible sleep modes correspond to varying degrees of reduced energy consumption by the wireless device, relative to a non-sleep mode. The wireless device selects (430) a first one of the plurality of possible sleep modes for the wireless device, based on this evaluating, and activates (440) the selected sleep mode during the first sleep opportunity.
