Application: Resource occasion repetition in wireless communications systems (Patent ID: US20230421303A1)

Qualcomm Inc. has filed a patent for methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications. The patent describes a method for wireless communication at a user equipment (UE) where the UE receives control information from a network entity indicating two sets of occasions for periodic transmissions, with one set mapped to the other. The UE transmits a message during the first set, receives feedback on its success, and retransmits the message during the second set based on the feedback and mapping. The method involves resource allocation, mode of operation, and soft combining of messages across different sets of resources.

The patent also covers an apparatus for wireless communication at a UE, including a processor and memory with instructions to implement the method described. The apparatus receives control information, transmits and retransmits messages based on feedback, and monitors for transmissions during specific occasions. It also involves modifying parameters based on feedback messages, beam blocking detection, and remaining packet delay budget. The apparatus is designed to support various modes of operation, resource types, and channel state information reports for efficient wireless communication.
