INSTINCT – Joint Sensing and Communications for Future Interactive, Immersive, and Intelligent Connectivity Beyond Communications

Cutting-edge 6G wireless technologies promise revolutionary advancements in broadband connectivity and beyond, towards network architectures that are able not only to connect but also to ‘sense the world’, offering substantial benefits to corporations and end users. The EU-funded INSTINCT project aims to chart a pioneering path for 6G development by spearheading critical innovative technological breakthroughs, laying the groundwork for further progress. The project endeavours to develop sensing-assisted communications, communications-assisted sensing and multi-functional AI-aided joint communications and sensing intelligence for mapping, tracking, imaging, incident detection and other situational awareness applications. Additionally, INSTINCT aims to leverage intelligent surfaces for improved multi-functional tuneability. Ultimately, the project brings together European academia and industry stakeholders to pursue its objectives and impact 6G technology adoption and standards.
