Course Description:


In this course, we will present recent and emerging technologies for future 5G/6G cellular communications. 

In particular, we will discuss advances in the various technologies currently being discussed for these future systems, such as Cognitive radio, massive MIMO and millimetre wave communications, IoT, M2M communications, as well as non-orthogonal NOMA access.

In addition, the applications of these technologies in intelligent transport systems (ITS) will first be discussed in the context of existing systems. We then discuss the challenges and future directions of research in Europe aimed at developing future European land transport systems (rail and vehicular).
