Open Lecture 2 – Integrated Sensing and Communication


To share the progress and results of the work performed by the one6G Association with the extended one6G community, a series of open lectures has been launched. These interactive 2-hour online events are open to anyone interested in the world’s journey toward 6G.

Following the success of the first Open Lecture, the Association is happy to confirm that the second Open Lecture will take place on July 7, 2022, at 14h00 CEST, covering the subject of Integrated Sensing and Communication. The event will feature presentations delivered by four high-level speakers, followed by an interactive Q&A session. The lecture will be moderated by Monique Calisti, the CEO of Martel Innovate.

Attendance is free, but registration is mandatory. Please click the button below to fill in your registration form.

14:30   Integrated Sensing and Communication – The Killer Feature of 6G?

Andreas Müller

Head of Communication and Network Technology, Bosch Corporate Research Department

Dr. Andreas Mueller is Bosch’s Chief Expert for Communication Technologies for the IoT and leading the Bosch 6G program. In addition to that, he has been coordinating and driving the Industrial 5G activities of Bosch over the past couple of years. Andreas also serves as General Chair of the “5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation” (5G-ACIA), the globally leading initiative for driving and shaping Industrial 5G. He has a strong background in both telecommunications and vertical industry applications and is therefore well-positioned to drive the 5G/6G-enabled transformation in different vertical industries.

14:55   Integrated Sensing and Communication – Some System and Access Issues

Reiner Thomä

Professor, TU Ilmenau Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Faculty

Prof. Reiner Thomä received the Dipl.-Ing. (M.S.E.E.), Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.E.E.), and the Dr.-Ing. habil. degrees in electrical engineering and information technology from Technische Hochschule Ilmenau, Germany. Since 1992, he has been a professor of electrical engineering (electronic measurement) at TU Ilmenau. With his group, he has contributed to several European and German research projects and clusters, lately Open6GHub, Marie Curie ITN5VC, and CA20120 (INTERACT). His research interests include measurement and digital signal processing methods (correlation and spectral analysis, system identification, sensor arrays, compressive sensing, time-frequency and cyclostationary signal analysis), their application in mobile radio and radar systems (multidimensional channel sounding, propagation measurement and parameter estimation, MIMO-, mm-wave-, and ultra-wideband radar), measurement-based performance evaluation of MIMO transmission systems including over-the-air testing in virtual electromagnetic environments, passive coherent location, and UWB radar sensor systems for object detection, tracking and imaging, and integrated communications and sensing. In 2007 he was awarded IEEE Fellow Member and received the Thuringian State Research Award for Applied Research both for contributions to high-resolution multidimensional channel sounding. In 2014 he received the Vodafone Innovation Award and in 2020 the EurAAP Propagation Award “For pioneering the multi-dimensional description of the mobile radio channel by advanced signal-processing methods.” He retired in 2018.
