Nokia will lead the KOMSENS-6G project which is funded by the German government.
The project which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) aims to integrate sensing capabilities into wireless networks.
Nokia will work together with a consortium of companies including start-ups, research institutes and universities. KOMSENS-6G is part of a larger 6G research initiative which has total funding of €14.9 million.
“We believe the sensing network will be a key component of 6G systems of the future, which we want to enable in a secure and privacy-preserving way. We are looking forward to working with all consortium members within KOMSENS-6G to deliver the essential solutions to make this happen,” says Peter Vetter, President of Nokia Bell Labs Core Research.
