SCOPE AND MOTIVATION

6G networks have been envisioned as key enablers for numerous emerging applications, including smart cities and homes, intelligently connected vehicles, smart manufacturing, and industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT). These applications require both extreme wireless connectivity as well as highly accurate and reliable sensing capability. Indeed, among many 6G visions, a common theme is that sensing will play a more significant role than ever before. By equipping wireless systems with the sensing functionality, 6G networks will go beyond classical communication and provide ubiquitous sensing services to measure, or to image, surrounding environments. This sensing functionality and the corresponding ability of the network to collect sensory data from the environment are seen as the foundation for building intelligence in the future smart world. Toward that end, there is a strong need to jointly design sensing, computation and communication operations in 6G networks, which motivates the recent research of Integrated Sensing and Communications (ISCC).

In essence, ISCC can acquire two main advantages over dedicated sensing and communication functionalities: 1) Integration gain to efficiently utilize congested resources, and even more interestingly, 2) Coordination gain to balance multi-functional performance or/and perform mutual assistance. That is, via the shared use of sensing, communication, and computing resources, ISCC can be realized through a synergistic design to pursue the integration gain, e.g., cohabitation strategies with interference management. Moreover, it can also be implemented from a co-design perspective, wherein the computing, communications and sensing functionalities are simultaneously performed to optimize the performance to acquire the coordination gain. Benefiting from these two advantages, applications of ISCC have been extended to numerous emerging areas, including vehicular networks, environmental monitoring, Internet of Things, as well as in-door services such as human activity and gesture recognition.
