  • Publication number: 20240064713
    Abstract: Wireless communications systems and methods related to channel occupancy time (COT) sharing for sidelink communications are provided. A first user equipment (UE) receives, from a second UE, a first sidelink transmission during a first channel occupancy time (COT), where the first COT is associated with the second UE. The first UE determines whether the second UE is one of two or more UEs intended to receive a second sidelink transmission. The first UE transmits, to the two or more UEs, the second sidelink transmission during a portion of the first COT based on COT sharing. The COT sharing is in response to determining the second UE is one of the two or more UEs intended to receive the second sidelink transmission.

  • Publication number: 20240064664
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for using automatic gain control symbols to indicate a sidelink mini-slot. A method performed by a transmitting user equipment includes transmitting, during a first time portion of a symbol within a slot, a first beam associated with a first receiving user equipment. The first time portion of the symbol is configured to indicate that the first receiving user equipment will receive another transmission from the transmitting user equipment during a first mini-slot within the slot associated with the first time portion. The method may further include transmitting, during a second time portion of the symbol within the slot, a second beam associated with a second receiving user equipment. The second time portion of the symbol is configured to indicate that the second receiving user equipment will receive another transmission from the transmitting user equipment during a second mini-slot within the slot.

  • Publication number: 20240064799
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for sidelink control signaling using unlicensed spectrum. Wireless devices may perform a listen-before-talk (LBT) procedure before accessing a channel of the unlicensed spectrum, and may be unable to access the unlicensed spectrum in some circumstances. In some implementations, a wireless device may leverage resources available for transmitting a sidelink synchronization signal block (S-SSB) for additionally transmitting control signaling. For example, a wireless device may multiplex (such as frequency domain multiplexing) a control signal with a S-SSB, which may be transmitted in accordance with a relaxed LBT threshold. In some implementations, the control signal may include information such as an indication of LBT failure or an LBT status, or may be used to detect a radio link failure (RLF), or may be used the short control signal to synchronize sidelink clusters, among other examples.

The first CSI report setting may be associated with the second CSI report setting for reporting CSI associated with non-coherent joint transmission. The UE may transmit a first report for the first CSI report setting at the first reporting occasion and a second report for the second CSI report setting at the second reporting occasion. Numerous other aspects are described.

  • Patent number: 11910359
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may transmit a first sidelink control information (SCI) message during a mini-slot of a control resource pool which is decoupled from a data resource pool for sidelink communications. The first SCI message may indicate a data message to be transmitted on a subchannel of the data resource pool to a second UE, where resources between the control resource pool and the data resource pool are mapped. The UE may receive a feedback message from the second UE for the first SCI message during a second mini-slot of the control resource pool. The feedback message may indicate whether a collision or strong interference was detected for the first SCI message. The UE may determine whether to transmit the data message or retransmit the first SCI message based on the feedback message.

  • Patent number: 11910360
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless communications systems, a user equipment (UE) may utilize opportunistic cooperative relaying to support exchanging packets between UEs without establishing or maintaining beamforming alignment between the UEs. Specifically, a source UE may invite nearby UEs (e.g., helper UEs) that receive a sidelink transmission (e.g., a packet meant for a different destination UE) to perform a single frequency network (SFN)-type transmission to opportunistically relay the packet to the destination UE. The helper UEs may receive, decode, and transmit the sidelink signaling from the source UE without establishing or configuring a relay agreement with the source UE. The destination UE may receive the sidelink signaling via cascading, SFN-type transmissions by one or more helper UEs. The destination UE may respond to the sidelink signaling with feedback information via one or more helper UEs or directly to the source UE.

  • Patent number: 11910444
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods, and apparatuses to enable a user equipment (UE) and a base station to improve reception of a random access response (RAR) by the UE in an unlicensed spectrum. A network may define a procedure for calculating a random access radio network temporary identifier (RA-RNTI) specific to unlicensed spectrum based on an extended RAR window. The calculation procedure may allow UEs transmitting in the window to calculate a unique RA-RNTI and identify a RAR addressed to the UE using the unique RA-RNTI. Additionally, or alternatively, a base station may transmit a RAR including timing information associated with a corresponding random access request. Accordingly, a UE may receive the RAR and compare the timing information with its own random access request in order to determine whether the RAR is addressed to the UE. Additionally, a UE may monitor a secondary cell or a sub-band for the RAR.

  • Patent number: 11910370
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. The described techniques provide for a base station transmitting to a user equipment (UE) a partial bandwidth configuration for uplink transmissions, where the partial bandwidth configuration may indicate a channel interlace and a portion of a channel bandwidth, for example, for autonomous uplink (AUL) transmissions. The base station may also transmit to the UE an AUL configuration including a group identifier. The UE may determine a starting offset with respect to an AUL subframe for a partial bandwidth transmission based on the group identifier. In some cases, different UEs may be grouped into groups of UEs allocated non-overlapping resources, and UEs allocated overlapping resources may have different starting offsets to begin transmitting. According to the determined starting offset, the UE may perform the partial bandwidth transmission over the channel interlace and the portion of the channel bandwidth.

  • Patent number: 11910381
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may receive downlink control information (DCI) scheduling multiple physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) resources for a set of uplink data messages. In some examples, the scheduled PUSCH resources may overlap with reserved or preconfigured uplink resources. The UE may determine, in accordance with a multiplexing configuration, a multiplexing schedule for multiplexing the scheduled PUSCH resources with the reserved or preconfigured uplink resources. The UE may transmit the set of uplink data messages on one or more of the scheduled PUSCH resources based on the multiplexing schedule. The described techniques may enable the UE to transmit the set of uplink data messages with improved reliability based on reducing a number of collisions between the set of uplink data messages and other uplink signals transmitted on the reserved or preconfigured uplink resources.
