Joint communication and radar sensing (JCAS, also known as radar-communication) enables the integration of communication and radio sensing into one system, sharing a single transmitted signal. The perceptive mobile network is a natural evolution of JCAS from simple point-to-point links to a mobile/cellular network with integrated radio sensing capability.
In this talk, I will provide an overview of perceptive mobile networks and introduce the state-of-the-art research outputs in this area. I will present a system architecture that unifies three types of sensing, investigate the required modifications to existing mobile networks, and exemplify the signals applicable to sensing. We will then discuss the potential and applications of the perceptive mobile networks as a ubiquitous radio sensing platform. We will then have a detailed look at stimulating research problems and potential solutions, including mutual information, joint waveform optimization, clutter suppression, and sensing parameter estimation and pattern recognition.
Dr J. Andrew Zhang (M'04-SM'11) received the B.Sc. degree from Xi'an JiaoTong University, China, in 1996, the M.Sc. degree from Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NJUPT), China, in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree from the Australian National University, in 2004.
Currently, Dr. Zhang is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Data Engineering, University of Technology Sydney, Australia. He is also an adjunct Professor in NJUPT. He was a researcher with Data61, CSIRO, Australia from 2010 to 2016, the Networked Systems, NICTA, Australia from 2004 to 2010, and ZTE Corp., Nanjing, China from 1999 to 2001. Dr. Zhang's research interests are in the area of signal processing for wireless communications and sensing, and autonomous vehicular networks. He has published more than 140 papers in leading international Journals and conference proceedings, and has won 4 best paper awards for his work. He is a recipient of CSIRO Chairman's Medal and the Australian Engineering Innovation Award in 2012 for exceptional research achievements in multi-gigabit wireless communications.
