Application: Mobile communication system and usage scenario determination method for the same (Patent ID: US20240064551A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. describes a mobile communication system and a method for determining usage scenarios based on antenna scenarios. The method involves determining different antenna scenarios based on impedance measurements and sensor information, and then using these scenarios to determine the overall usage scenario of the mobile communication system. The system includes an antenna group, a coupler for impedance measurement, a controller, and a sensor for collecting information. The controller is responsible for determining antenna scenarios and usage scenarios based on the collected data.

The method and system outlined in the patent allow for the automatic determination of usage scenarios in a mobile communication system based on specific antenna scenarios. By analyzing impedance measurements, sensor information, and antenna tuner states, the system can identify whether the device is being used in a single hand mode, gaming mode, or navigation mode, among others. The system also includes triggers for initiating measurements based on parameters such as power headroom and download throughput, ensuring accurate scenario detection. Overall, this technology aims to optimize the performance and user experience of mobile devices by adapting to different usage scenarios in real-time.
