Congratulations to our colleague Dr. Yang Miao on the funding of her NWO OTP project '3D-ComS - Towards-6G mmWave NanoCell: the 3D Base Station for Joint Communication and Sensing!'
The Open Technology Programme provides funding for excellent research, with a view to the possible application of the results. The programme offers companies and other organisations a low-threshold way of linking up with scientific research that should lead to applicable knowledge. The board of NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences awards funding to six projects through the Open Technology Programme, one of which is Dr. Miao's project '3D-ComS - Towards-6G mmWave NanoCell: the 3D Base Station for Joint Communication and Sensing:'
"Towards 6G, millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies are used for high-speed communication, focusing beams towards users in nanocells spreading tens of meters. Advancement in mmWave communication devices also results in accurate sensing of environment. Sensing while communication is crucial to prevent the communication performance degradation caused by dynamic blockages (e.g., humans, vehicles). In 3D-ComS, we exploit a unique set of expertise to advance joint communication and sensing. We will design a 3D mmWave array system with a minimal number of active, highly integrated antennas to enable digital beamforming at lower power consumption, and seek meaningful trade-offs between data rates and sensing performances."
