About

Objectives

01
Network
Define physical and logical network architecture and framework for the next-generation integrated communication and sensing network for connected and unconnected objects. The goal is to create a framework that combines communication and radio-sensing networks, incorporating both connected and unconnected devices.
02
Waveforms
Develop and validate PHY waveforms suitable for both communication and radio sensing. The initial goal is to define the essential space-time-frequency localisation and latency requirements for waveforms that can be utilised for both radio sensing and communication purposes. The next objective is to design, analyse and validate the effectiveness of these waveforms and optimise them for spectral and energy efficiency.
03
Merging of optical and radio technologies for timing, synchronization and transport
Design development and transport to the infrastructure nodes of low-noise and highly stable reference sources for RF carrier and timing synchronisation.The goal is to design and develop stable reference source for clock and RF/mm wave frequencies for wireless sensing and communications.
04
Algorithms for sensing and localisation
Develop and validate cooperative MIMO multi-static sensing algorithms to enable high accuracy localisation and tracking and high-resolution 3D imaging. This objective addresses the multi-static sensing operation with a centralised radio-sensing architecture.
05
Resource allocation and sensing/positioning validation
Develop dynamic resource allocation schemes that enable optimisation of the usage of radio resources to satisfy radio localisation, sensing and communication needs. The objective aims to address the challenge of balancing the competing needs of integrated positioning, sensing and communication systems, as using radio resources for one may negatively impact the performance of the others.
06
Business Cases and Sustainability
Define and validate the business cases and sustainability issues associated with integrated communication and sensing in 6G. The aim is to identify environmental, social and economic sustainability challenges of 6G and the role of integrated communication and sensing in this development.
07
Testing stage
Demonstration Integration and demonstration of 6G-MUSICAL's value by conducting appropriate experimentation, testing, and validation of its innovations in lab settings using PoCs. Integrate all 6G-MUSICAL components into a coherent system and perform tests to ensure technical readiness before testing and validating the 6G-MUSICAL architecture and system in laboratory environments.
