Application: Context specific alerts for user equipments (Patent ID: US20240098482A1)

Qualcomm Inc. has filed a patent for a method and apparatus that provides context-specific alerts for both autonomous and non-autonomous vehicles. The apparatus is designed to obtain a capability indication of a user equipment (UE) paired with a vehicle, generate vehicle-specific signals based on this indication, and output these signals to the UE. The data within the signals is tailored to the specific combination of the UE and the vehicle, including information related to other vehicles, road users, road conditions, traffic conditions, sensor field of view, depths, and ranges.

The patent claims detail the configuration of the apparatus for wireless communication at a network entity, including the use of a memory, processor, and transceiver to transmit and receive capability indications and vehicle-specific signals. The apparatus is capable of distinguishing between autonomous and non-autonomous vehicles, adjusting data within the signals accordingly. Additionally, the apparatus can transmit second vehicle-specific signals to multiple UEs via sidelink communication, considering the capabilities of each UE based on the received signals. The method and apparatus aim to enhance communication between vehicles and UEs, providing tailored alerts and information based on the specific pairing of the UE and the vehicle.
