Title: MECHANISMS FOR SIGNALING OUT-OF-COVERAGE SIDELINK DEVICES IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION
Abstract:
Aspects of the present disclosure provide methods and apparatuses that can provide sidelink grant information to out-of-coverage (OoC) sidelink devices. When one or more sidelink devices are out of a coverage area of a base station, an in-coverage device receiving sidelink grant information from the base station can retransmit, relay, or rebroadcast sidelink grant information to the OoC sidelink devices to enable sidelink communication with the OoC device or facilitate sidelink communication between OoC devices.
