Application: Determining periodicity of sidelink communications within the network coverage (Patent ID: US20240107557A1)

The patent filed by Sharp Corp. describes a method for a first user equipment (UE) to engage in sidelink communication with a second UE. The method involves receiving a resource set from a cell to establish a sidelink channel with the second UE, transmitting parameters associated with the channel to the cell, setting a timer based on the distance between the UEs, and establishing a second channel if the timer expires without receiving a new resource set. The patent also details various scenarios for establishing the second channel based on different distances and timers.

The first UE described in the patent is equipped with computer-readable media and processors to execute instructions for establishing sidelink channels with another UE. The processor is configured to receive resource sets from the cell, set timers based on distances between UEs, and establish channels accordingly. The patent also outlines the process for determining distances, setting timers, and establishing channels based on received resource sets, ensuring efficient and effective sidelink communication between UEs.
