Nokia to lead KOMSENS-6G

Nokia will lead the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research’s (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) KOMSENS-6G project. The project aims to drive global pre-standardization activities from a German and European perspective, with a specific focus on the network as a sensor technology, according to the company.

KOMSENS-6G is part of a broader German 6G initiative and has a total funding of €14.9 million, with a duration of three years. On completion of the 3-year project, KOMSENS-6G aims to deliver an architecture for integrated sensing and communication, together with a demonstration of the combined service.

In the 6G era, sensing will be a key enabling technology, says Nokia. The sensing service will be fully integrated in the wireless network for simultaneous operation with communication services. In this network of the future, we could avoid traffic accidents by sensing unseen cars. We could interact with machines and robots remotely, seeing what they see, hearing what they hear, while directing their actions through simple hand gestures captured by the network, according to the Finnish giant.
