Title: METHOD AND APPARATUSES FOR PROVIDING TRANSFER BLOCK INDICATION IN UPLINK GRANT-FREE TRANSMISSIONS
Abstract:
A system, apparatus, method, and/or non-transitory computer readable medium for providing transfer block indications in uplink (UL) grant-free transmissions may include a memory having computer readable instructions stored thereon, and at least one processor configured to execute the computer readable instructions to transmit a first transport block (TB) to a base station (BS) (120, 122) during a first transmission time interval (ΤΤI) using a grant-free UL transmission (210, 250), receive a UL grant (220, 260) from the BS in a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) region during a time window, determine a target of the UL grant, the target including at least one of the first TB, a second TB, or a previously transmitted TB, based on the UL grant, and transmitting the target of the UL grant to the BS.
