Application: Schemes on ue reporting gnss related information (Patent ID: US20240085568A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. discloses a method, apparatus, and computer-readable medium for wireless communication involving a user equipment (UE) in a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) environment. The UE determines various types of GNSS-related information and assistance data, reports them to a base station, receives a scheduling indication for acquiring a GNSS position fix, and acquires the fix in a time period specified by the scheduling indication while in a radio resource control (RRC) connected state. The disclosed method includes reporting GNSS assistance information to the base station, storing GNSS-related information in UE context during RRC Connection Establishment, and receiving a higher layer parameter indicating reporting periodicity for periodic reporting of GNSS information.

The apparatus described in the patent is a UE equipped with a memory and processor to carry out the method steps outlined in the disclosure. The processor determines GNSS-related information and assistance data, reports them to the base station, receives scheduling indications for acquiring GNSS position fixes, and performs the acquisition within specified time periods in the RRC connected state. The apparatus also includes features for storing GNSS information in UE context, handling implicit and explicit indications of GNSS-related data, and ensuring consistency in reporting specific types of information. Additionally, a computer-readable medium storing executable code for implementing the wireless communication method in a UE is also disclosed, providing a tangible medium for storing and executing the described processes.
