  • Patent number: 12047971
    Abstract: Various aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to wireless communication. In some aspects, a user equipment (UE) may receive, on a particular control resource set (CORESET), downlink control information (DCI) scheduling a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) or a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH). The UE may be configured with multi-DCI based multi-transmission/reception point (TRP) operation. The UE may determine, based at least in part on the UE being configured with multi-DCI based multi-TRP operation, a fixed higher layer index that identifies a CORESET group with which the particular CORESET is associated. The UE may perform an operation, associated with receiving the PDSCH or transmitting the PUSCH, based at least in part on the fixed higher layer index identifying the CORESET group with which the particular CORESET is associated. Numerous other aspects are provided.

  • Patent number: 12047794
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. For example, the described techniques provide for configuring sidelink beam failure detection reference signals for determining beam failures on a sidelink between a first sidelink user equipment (UE) and a second sidelink UE. The first UE may determine a first set of sidelink beam failure detection reference signals to transmit to the second UE and a second set of sidelink beam failure detection reference signals to receive from the second UE. The first UE may transmit the first set to the second UE using a set of sidelink transmit beams. The first UE may further monitor for the determined second set using a set of sidelink receive beams. Based on the first and second set of sidelink beam failure detection reference signals, the first and second UE may communicate over the sidelink.
