    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. An energy harvesting device may transmit energy status information for the energy harvesting device, where the energy harvesting device may cycle between an energy harvesting mode and a wireless communication mode. During the wireless communication mode, the energy harvesting device may receive control signaling indicating to apply a first feedback process type (e.g., a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process) of multiple different feedback process types based on the energy status information. The energy harvesting device may receive a control message scheduling transmission of a message to the energy harvesting wireless device in a resource of a shared data channel. Accordingly, the energy harvesting device may monitor the resource for the message based on the control message and may transmit feedback information for the message in accordance with the indicated feedback process type.

  • Publication number: 20240244478
    Abstract: A method for wireless communication at a user equipment (UE) and related apparatus are provided. In the method, the UE transmits, to a network entity, a buffer status reporting (BSR) in response to a BSR triggering condition from multiple BSR triggering conditions being met. Each of the multiple BSR triggering conditions is associated with a Protocol Data Unit (PDU) set including a group of PDUs. The UE further communicates with the network entity based on the BSR. The method provides multiple BSR triggering conditions based on various scenarios in data transmission. It allows the BSR information to be readily available to the network and enables an efficient resource allocation.

  • Publication number: 20240244479
    Abstract: A method for wireless communication at a user equipment (UE) and related apparatus are provided. In the method, the UE obtains multiple buffer status reporting (BSR) tables and multiple sets of one or more timers. Each BSR table of the multiple BSR tables corresponds to one logic channel group (LCG) of multiple LCGs. The UE further communicates with a network entity based on one BSR table selected from the multiple BSR tables and one set of timers selected from the multiple sets of one or more timers. The method enables the UE to obtain multiple BSR tables and BSR timers and select corresponding BSR tables and timers according to specific characteristics of the traffic.

  • Publication number: 20240244537
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. An energy harvesting wireless device may accumulate energy during an energy harvesting state for use in subsequent operation. In some cases, the energy harvesting wireless device may detect a trigger, such as a change in an energy status of the energy harvesting wireless device or explicit control signaling from a network, for transmitting a power headroom report (PHR), channel state information (CSI), or both. The energy harvesting wireless device may transmit the message including one or more of the PHR or the CSI and indicating that energy information (e.g., an energy report, an energy request, or both) is multiplexed with the PHR, the CSI, or both. In some cases, the message may include control information such as a medium access control (MAC) control element (MAC-CE).

  • Patent number: 12035359
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, a user equipment (UE) may perform a random access channel (RACH) procedure with a base station. The UE may receive a message configuring a RACH preamble occasion and an uplink data occasion. The message may be a radio resource control (RRC) message or a system information (SI) message. In some cases, the UE may determine if the RACH preamble occasion, the uplink data occasion, or both are restricted for cancellation based on the message. The UE may determine when to monitor a downlink control channel for dynamic scheduling based on determining which occasions are restricted for cancellation and may transmit a RACH message based on monitoring—or not monitoring—the downlink control channel for dynamic scheduling preempting a RACH occasion. In some other cases, a base station may schedule transmissions to not overlap with configured RACH occasions.

  • Patent number: 12034472
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, a user equipment (UE) and a base station may support beamforming communication techniques and may communicate using one or more beams. The UE may support a bandwidth part (BWP) hopping pattern and may perform a beam failure detection (BFD) procedure across the supported BWPs. While performing the BFD procedure, the UE may declare beam failure and may determine whether to switch to an anchor BWP to initiate a beam failure recover (BFR) procedure or to remain on an active BWP to initiate the BFR procedure. In some implementations, the UE may determine whether to switch to the anchor BWP or to remain on the active BWP to initiate the BFR procedure based on an indication from the base station.

  • Patent number: 12035374
    Abstract: Wireless communications systems may support flexible waveform configuration for autonomous uplink transmissions. A base station may transmit broadcast signaling (e.g., a system information block (SIB)) indicating waveform configuration information for an autonomous uplink transmission by a user equipment (UE). In some cases, the broadcast signaling may include a waveform configuration field (WCF) that may indicate whether flexible waveforms for autonomous uplink are supported, may configure a waveform type, may indicate waveform configuration mapping rules, etc. As such, a UE may identify whether flexible waveform configuration for autonomous uplink is supported, and may determine waveform types for autonomous uplink transmissions based on waveform type configuration information from a base station (e.g., which may include an indication of whether flexible waveform configuration is supported, an indication of waveform type/scenario mapping rules, etc.

  • Publication number: 20240224110
    Abstract: Some wireless communications systems may support logical channel prioritization (LCP) adaptation. A user equipment (UE) may receive signaling scheduling multiple data flows associated with a set of channels in particular logical channels, where each data flow of the multiple data flows is associated with a set of one or more parameters. The UE may calculate a deadline metric (DM) associated with a transmission time of each data flow based on the sets of one or more channel prioritization parameters and may adapt the set of one or more parameters associated one or more data flows of the multiple data flows based at least in part on the DM. The UE may transmit a first data flow of the multiple data flows based at least in part on a prioritization of the first data flow over a second data flow, the prioritization based at least in part on the adapting.

  • Patent number: 12028795
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may implement a power-efficient discovery procedure to establish a relay. In some cases, the UE may monitor a resource pool for a relay beacon from a relay device and measure a received power of the relay beacon. If the received power satisfies a threshold, the UE may monitor for a relay announcement from the relay device and establish a sidelink connection with the relay device based on the relay announcement. The relay beacon may support a two-stage discovery procedure, where the UE determines a relay device is available before processing a relay announcement to conserve power. Additional techniques for proximity-based discovery are described herein.
