A distinguished lecture by Prof. Michèle Wigger

Main content

Abstract: We will provide an introduction to Shannon’s famous channel and source coding theorems and show modern applications thereof for integrated sensing and communication (ISAC) systems. ISAC systems are expected to be important building blocks of future 6G standards as they merge radar and communication into single systems with reduced hardware costs and bandwidth requirements. In this talk we shall present Kobayashi et al.’s  capacity-distortion tradeoffs for single-transmitter and single-receiver ISAC systems and also discuss our extensions to multiple transmitters or multiple receivers. Specifically, for  multiple receivers, we identify interesting tradeoffs between the various achievable rates and distortions. For multiple transmitters we present the first information-theoretic  coding scheme that integrates collaborative sensing and collaborative communication into a single code construction and we show that our construction achieves improved performances compared to previous schemes. The talk is based on joint work with Mehrasa Ahmadipour, Giuseppe Caire, and Mari Kobayashi
