Claim of US Patent No. 10,172,156

1. A method comprising:comparing a number of symbols used for uplink transmissions in a transmit time interval to a threshold number of symbols;
sending, from a device, an indication on a sidelink channel to at least one peer device, the indication indicating the location of symbols used for an uplink transmission if the uplink transmission occupies a number of symbols less than the threshold number of symbols;
transmitting both a sidelink transmission and the uplink transmission in the transmit time interval if the uplink transmission occupies the number of symbols less than the threshold number of symbols; and
transmitting only the uplink transmission in the transmit time interval if the uplink transmission occupies a number of symbols that are at least the threshold number of symbols.
