Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SUPPORTING HANDOVER OF DRONE IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
Disclosed is a method for supporting the handover of a drone in a wireless communication system. The method is performed by the drone and includes measuring signal quality of one or more neighboring eNBs using one or more reference signals (RSs) transmitted by the one or more neighboring eNBs; configuring a candidate set comprising at least one candidate eNB related to the handover based on the measured signal quality; comparing a signal quality value of the at least one candidate eNB with a signal quality value of a serving eNB; and transmitting a first message to request the handover to the serving eNB if the signal quality value of the at least one candidate eNB is better than the signal quality value of the serving eNB for a specific period.
