Claim of US Patent No. 11,032,799

1. A method for transmitting a device-to-device (D2D) signal by a user equipment (UE) in a wireless communication system, the method comprising:configuring a threshold value;
determining a set of resources for transmission of the D2D signal, based on excluding at least one candidate resource from a set of candidate resources, wherein the at least one candidate resource is excluded from the set of candidate resources based on a received signal power detected in the at least one candidate resource being greater than the threshold value;
selecting a resource, from among the set of resources, for transmission of the D2D signal; and
transmitting the D2D signal through the selected resource,
wherein determining the set of resources for transmission of the D2D signal, based on excluding the at least one candidate resource from the set of candidates resources, comprises:
determining whether a number of resources in the set of candidate resources, other than the at least one candidate resource excluded from the set of candidate resources, satisfies a minimum number of resources; and
based on the number of resources in the set of candidate resources, other than the excluded at least one candidate resource, not satisfying the minimum number of resources: increasing the threshold value until the number of resources in the set of candidate resources, other than the excluded at least one candidate resource, satisfies the minimum number of resources.
