Dr Frodigh is adjunct Professor at Royal Institute of Technology in Wireless Infrastructures since 2013.
Integrated Sensing and Communications
In this talk, we present a framework of integrated sensing and communications for 6G. The true integration of the communions and sensing into a single device a, single spectrum and single platform will enable many new value added services, beyond the connectivity function as we know for wireless communications today. Furthermore, for 6G, the higher frequency spectrum with larger bandwidth has been utilized to meet the continuously increasing requirement for larger throughput requirement, in addition to transfer the information bit, we can retrieve the radio wave propagation characteristics with advanced signal processing technologies, to perform the parametrize-identification of the objects, the environmental real time imaging and even spectrogram of the physical world, this will facilitate the proliferation of the deep learning technology for 6G and to provide for the 6G AI service platform. The integrated wireless sensing and communications (ISAC) has the advantages such as preserve the privacy and enable the dynamic real world learning and inferencing service and ultimately the ISAC will make the entire global wireless communications infrastructure and billions of devices as a network of sensors.
