Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS TO SUPPORT DISTRESS SIGNALING FROM A WIRELESS DEVICE
Abstract:
Methods of assisting an emergency situation at a first User Equipment (UE) may comprise detecting the emergency situation; and sending an Emergency Services (ES) request comprising discovery information, wherein the ES request is sent by broadcast using a Long Term Evolution (LTE) Direct service, a WiFi Direct service, or a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) service. Disclosed embodiments also pertain to methods of assisting an emergency situation at a first UE, wherein the method is performed on a second UE and comprises receiving from the first UE an ES request comprising the discovery information for the first UE, wherein the ES request is received using an LTE Direct service; a WiFi Direct service or a P2P service. Disclosed embodiments further pertain to methods of communicating by first UE and/or second UE with a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) in order to assist discovery of the second UE by the first UE.
