Special Session: Integrated Sensing and Communications for Internet of Things

The integration of radar/sensing with communications, heralded as a new frontier in information technology by the communications and signal processing communities, has sparked a plethora of cutting-edge applications. Known as Integrated Sensing and Communication (ISAC), this research trend can be realized through the synergistic design of shared spectral and hardware resources, employing strategies like cohabitation designs and dynamic spectrum allocation/access with interference management. ISAC's implementation can also adopt a co-design approach, enabling parallel operation with optimized performance. This emerging paradigm offers distinct advantages, including efficient resource utilization and balanced multi-functional performance, hinting at a potential future where dual-functional networks empower civilian services through sensing and tailored communication.
