Abstract of the proposed UNIPhD research project

 

To address receiver mobility and Doppler effects, this research explores Joint Communication and Sensing (JCS) in millimeter-wave (mmWave) systems. A mathematical model is developed, incorporating receiver velocity, target Doppler frequency shift, and phase shifts to represent dynamic interactions. In experimental validation, IMU sensors are employed to acquire ground truth measurements, aided by the FPGA-based Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC ZCU111 device for firmware-based configuration of the receiver and transmitter. The objective of this work is to enhance understanding and flexibility in dynamic millimeter-wave systems.
