TECoSA Seminar – Radio Positioning in 6G Communication Systems

May 2, 15:0016:00

We aim to bring you a TECoSA Seminar on the first Thursday of each month during term-time.  All are welcome to attend and we look forward to some lively discussions. Members can accept the Outlook invitations, non-members can email to register.

Our guest speaker for May is Marina Petrova, Professor of Wireless Communications with RWTH Aachen, and a Visiting Professor with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, KTH.  The session will be given via Zoom (

ABSTACT: Enabling sensing functionality with cellular network infrastructure is envisioned as one of the disruptive features of the sixth-generation (6G) networks. By doing so, future networks will be able to “see” the physical world through radio imaging and measuring the surrounding environment, and offer advanced location-aware services and applications. Joint design of communication and sensing in a so called Integrated Communication and Sensing  (ICaS) system requires careful optimization of the available system resources between the two functions to meet their respective target requirements. In this talk, I will first motivate and present the background of ICaS systems. Thereafter I will highlight our latest research results on a 5G New Radio (NR)-based cooperative multi-monostatic sensing framework for passive target localization. Our fusion-based estimation process can mitigate the effect of multipath and increase the localization accuracy in a bandwidth limited scenario. Finally, I will conclude the talk by identifying and discussing major open challenges and future directions in designing ICaS systems.

BIO: Marina Petrova received the Diploma degree in electronics engineering and telecommunications from Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje, North Macedonia and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. She is currently a Professor of Wireless Communications with RWTH Aachen, and a Visiting Professor with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Her research interests are in system-level modeling, optimization, and design of future intelligent wireless systems including, millimeter-wave and ICAS technologies, joint radio access and mobile computing, and spectrum sharing. She has published about 150 articles in journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Petrova is a recipient of the Future Research Leader Award from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and was named a Wallenberg Academy Fellow in 2019. She has served as an Editor for IEEE Wireless Communication Letters and IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.
