Title: AUTONOMOUS UPLINK BENEFIT IDENTIFICATION
Abstract:
Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A base station within a wireless system may determine a measurement scheme or uplink mode and then transmit an indication of the scheme or uplink mode to an associated user equipment (UE). The base station may, for example, identify a set of hidden nodes for the UE and configure the UE for autonomous or grant-based uplink transmissions accordingly. The UE may identify a signal strength of neighboring nodes, which the UE may communicated to the base station for identification of hidden nodes. In some examples, the UE may be configured with an autonomous uplink, which may support unscheduled uplink communications, when a base station determines that operating in the autonomous uplink mode would provide a benefit for the UE—e.g., a benefit for UE operation in view of hidden nodes with which the UE may contend.
