On Communication and Sensing Measurements and Modeling for Next “G”

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/411344

As the needs for sensing the physical world to support detection, tracking, AR/VR and slew of other applications increase, the use of communications waveforms for sensing is becoming more attractive and is likely to emerge as one of the main features in NextG development. In this talk we discuss key challenges in measurement science and modeling approaches for advanced communications and sensing going forward. We will review the main building blocks for joint communications and sensing in terms of efficient spectrum use, higher frequency bands and the use machine learning. The millimeter-wave and terahertz bands hold the promise of significant bandwidth and speed due to large swaths of untapped spectrum. In addition, as massive data volumes are being collected, analyzed, and delivered, communications and sensing systems have become too complex to develop, manage, and operate. The insights that are “mined” from the data using Machine Learning (ML) techniques have become standard practice. In this talk, we discuss state-of-the-art and key challenges in measurement and modeling techniques to expedite the development and pave the way for the next “G”.
