– use the selected sidelink grant to determine the subframes in which transmission(s) of SCI and SL-SCH occur according to subclause 14.2.1 and 14.1.1.4B of [2];

– consider the selected sidelink grant to be a configured sidelink grant;

NOTE: For V2X sidelink communication, the UE should ensure the randomly selected time and frequency resources fulfil the latency requirement.

NOTE: For V2X sidelink communication, when there is no overlapping between the chosen configuration(s) in pssch-TxConfigList and chosen configuration(s) indicated in cbr-pssch-TxConfigList, it is up to UE implementation whether the UE transmits and which transmitting parameters the UE uses between allowed configuration(s) indicated in pssch-TxConfigList and allowed configuration(s) indicated in cbr-pssch-TxConfigList.

The MAC entity shall for each subframe:

– if the MAC entity has a configured sidelink grant occurring in this subframe:

– else if the configured sidelink grant corresponds to transmission of first transport block for sidelink communication:

– deliver the configured sidelink grant and the associated HARQ information to the Sidelink HARQ Entity for this subframe.

NOTE: If the MAC entity has multiple configured grants occurring in one subframe and if not all of them can be processed due to the single-cluster SC-FDM restriction, it is left for UE implementation which one of these to process according to the procedure above.

Note 1: Although the UE is expected to transmit continuously, The reception of one STCH PDCP SDU packet is sufficient for achieving the Pass verdict.

Note 2: 316 bytes of MAC PDU (300 bytes of STCH PDCP SDU and headers) are mapped to a 325 bytes (TBS) of data, using MCS =17 and Nprb = 8 from TS 36.213 [30] Table 7.1.7.1-1 and Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 which gives TBS = 2600 bits/TTI.

Note 3: 316 bytes of MAC PDU (300 bytes of STCH PDCP SDU and headers) are mapped to a 317 bytes (TBS) of data, using MCS = 8 and Nprb = 18 from TS 36.213 [30] Table 7.1.7.1-1 and Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 which gives TBS = 2536 bits/TTI.

Explanation

LOW_CBR

The Tx parameters for V2X in low CBR scenario. The CBR level is lower than 20% which is configured in sl-CBR-r14[1].

MID_CBR

The Tx parameters used for V2X communication in mid CBR scenario. The CBR level is from 20% to 60% which is configured in sl-CBR-r14[2].

HIGH_CBR

The Tx parameters used for V2X communication in high CBR scenario. The CBR level is higher than 60% which is configured in sl-CBR-r14[3].
