Application: Neighboring cell relative mobility information for vehicle mounted relays (Patent ID: US20240107404A1)

The patent filed by Sharp Corp. describes a wireless terminal in a cellular telecommunication system that communicates with an access node via a serving cell. The wireless terminal includes receiver circuitry to receive messages from the serving cell containing information about a neighboring cell's identity and mobility state relative to the serving cell. The processor circuitry in the wireless terminal then uses this information to perform a cell reselection procedure.

The claims in the patent detail the specific functionalities and parameters of the wireless terminal, access node, and the method involved. These include determining whether the neighboring cell is stationary or mobile, using different cell reselection parameters based on the mobility state, including mobility information in system information blocks, and the generation and transmission of messages between the access node and the wireless terminal. Overall, the patent focuses on optimizing cell reselection procedures based on the mobility state of neighboring cells, enhancing the efficiency and performance of wireless communication systems.
