The PhD research project aims to design and optimize JRC (joint radio and communication) waveforms/sequences and network resources for improved sensing and communication capabilities in beyond 5G (6G) mobile networks. Traditionally, the functionalities of sensing and communications are separate technologies, which lead to low efficiency, long latency, and substantial waste of resources. JRC can simultaneously sense around environments and transmit information messages, especially in high-frequency bands. Thus, the main objectives of the project are to design and optimize JRC with long range and high resolution for radar detection, accurate channel estimation capability, high spectrum and power efficiency, and supporting for multi-user operation and with limited complexity. The project will be a collaboration between KTH and NTU (Nanyang Technology of University, Singapore). The doctoral student will have the chance to collaborate with both KTH and NTU teams.
