  • Publication number: 20220377723
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods, and devices for wireless communication that support managing compression and compression indications of a low-priority (LP) uplink control information (UCI) message that is multiplexed with a high-priority (HP) UCI message in a wireless communication system. In particular, a user equipment (UE) determines a compression indication for the LP UCI message, encodes the compression indication jointly with the HP UCI payload, and separately encodes the LP UCI payload. The encoded LP UCI payload is multiplexed with the jointly-encoded compression indication and HP UCI payload in an uplink transmission to a base station. The compression indication includes information related to whether and how the LP UCI has been compressed. The base station decodes the compression indication and then decodes the LP UCI message based on the compression indication.

    Abstract: An apparatus configured to be employed in a user equipment (UE) associated with a new radio (NR) system is disclosed. The apparatus comprises one or more processors configured to select a first resource from a candidate resource set comprising a plurality of candidate resources within a first resource selection window. In some embodiments, the first resource is to be utilized by the UE for a first transmission of a transport block (TB) over sidelink. In some embodiments, a size of the first resource selection window is derived based on a (pre)configured maximum number of retransmissions of the TB. In some embodiments, the one or more processors is further configured to generate a first transmission signal comprising the first transmission of the TB, to be transmitted over the sidelink using the selected first resource.

  • Publication number: 20220377755
    Abstract: Measurement resources are often limited in 5G and 4G-LTE communications. As a result, SMTC and CSI-RS measurement windows will occasionally be assigned to the same resource elements of a signal frame. This results in a collision that must be resolved, since both measurements cannot be performed simultaneously. The collision can be resolved using restriction, where overlapping resource elements are assigned to either the SMTC or the CSI-RS measurements, or can be resolved using measurement sharing, where overlapping resource elements are divided among the two measurements according to a measurement sharing factor. Various factors, including priority or window periodicity may be taken into account by the measurement rules that dictate collision resolution.

  • Publication number: 20220376855
    Abstract: Some embodiments include an apparatus, method, and computer program product for tracking reference signal (TRS) support of high speed use cases of 5G communications in a single frequency network (SFN), where a user equipment (UE) can measure a Doppler offset of a combined signal from two or more transmission reception points (TRPs) of the 5G communications system. A 5G node B (gNB) node can transmit a periodic, semi-persistent (SP), or aperiodic TRS with high measurement density that the UE uses to measure a Doppler offset of a combined signal. For example, the gNB can: trigger the aperiodic TRS based on a downlink assignment; and/or use lower layer signaling to arrange to transmit a semi-persistent TRS or a periodic TRS with a reduced periodicity. In some embodiments, the gNB can measure the Doppler offset based on an uplink signal, and transmit a TRS based on a pre-compensated Doppler frequency.

  • Publication number: 20220376756
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A first device (e.g., a user equipment (UE)) may receive signaling indicating a set of channel state information (CSI) report configurations for sidelink communications between the first device and a second device. The first device may then receive a request from the second device for a CSI report according to a first CSI report configuration from the set of CSI report configurations. The first device may perform channel measurements based on receiving the request and may generate the CSI report using the channel measurements according to the first CSI configuration. In some cases, the first device may determine whether to additionally generate the CSI report using one or more previous channel measurements based on whether the previous channel measurements were taken according to the same CSI report. The first device may then transmit the generated CSI report to the second device.
