      Abstract: This issue of IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine includes two special issues about topics of high interest to the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. The first offers a selection of seven articles on backscatter and reconfigurable intelligence surfaces (RISs) for wireless communication in future 6G. RISs can reconfigure the propagation environment by using passive reflecting elements. This opens the door to low-cost and low-energy solutions that help customize wireless channels based on coverage needs and other criteria. Ambient backscatter communication does not need active radio-frequency components and can be deployed at large scale with low cost since it can harvest energy.

      Abstract: On 30 November 2021, VIA Rail and Siemens unveiled new passenger train sets for numerous services departing Toronto, beginning in 2022. The trains are pulled by slick new Siemens Charger locomotives, basically the de facto standard new intercity rail locomotive in North America. VIA’s Charger is a variant, known as the SC-42, and has a distinct design that looks better than most of the railroad’s trains, as shown in Figure 1. The units are capable of speeds up to 200 km/h, or 125 mi/h, although VIA won’t be operating that fast on current services, largely due to track quality. Yet, the improved performance of the new fleet will help upgrade service speeds by about 5% to reduce trip times.

  • Multiwideband Terahertz Communications Via Tunable Graphene-Based
           Metasurfaces in 6G Networks: Graphene Enables Ultimate Multiwideband THz
           Wavefront Control

      Authors: Hamidreza Taghvaee;Alexandros Pitilakis;Odysseas Tsilipakos;Anna C. Tasolamprou;Nikolaos V. Kantartzis;Maria Kafesaki;Albert Cabellos-Aparicio;Eduard Alarcón;Sergi Abadal;
      Pages: 16 - 25
      Abstract: The next generation of wireless networks is expected to tap into the terahertz (THz) band (0.1–10 THz) to satisfy the extreme latency and bandwidth density requirements of future applications. However, the development of systems in this band is challenging as THz waves confront severe spreading and penetration losses, as well as molecular absorption, which leads to strong line-of-sight requirements through highly directive antennas. Recently, reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RISs) have been proposed to address issues derived from non-line-of-sight (non-LoS) propagation, among other impairments, by redirecting the incident wave toward the receiver and implementing virtual-line-of-sight communications. However, the benefits provided by a RIS may be lost if the network operates at multiple bands. In this article, the suitability of the RIS paradigm in indoor THz scenarios for 6G is assessed grounded on the analysis of a tunable graphene-based RIS that can operate in multiple wideband transparency windows. A possible implementation of such a RIS is provided and numerically evaluated at 0.65/0.85/1.05 THz separately, demonstrating that beam steering and other relevant functionalities are realizable with excellent performance. Finally, the challenges associated with the design and fabrication of multiwideband graphene-based RISs are discussed, paving the way to the concurrent control of multiple THz bands in the context of 6G networks.

      Authors: Yuanbin Chen;Ying Wang;Jiayi Zhang;Ping Zhang;Lajos Hanzo;
      Pages: 26 - 36
      Abstract: Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RISs) assist in paving the way for the evolution of conventional vehicular networks to autonomous driving. Having said that, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) faces numerous open challenges concerning the RIS-aided vehicle-to-everything (V2X) solutions of the near future. To tackle these challenges and to stimulate future research, this article focuses on the prospective transmission design of RIS-aided V2X communications. In particular, two V2X sidelink modes are enhanced by exploiting RISs and their variants, followed by a customized transmission frame structure that partitions the transmission efforts into different phases. Next, effective channel-tracking and resource allocation techniques are developed for attaining a high beamforming gain at low overhead and complexity. Finally, promising research topics are highlighted, and future 3GPP standardization items are proposed for RIS-aided V2X systems.

  • Location Awareness Via Intelligent Surfaces: A Path Toward Holographic NLN

      Authors: Moe Z. Win;Ziyi Wang;Zhenyu Liu;Yuan Shen;Andrea Conti;
      Pages: 37 - 45
      Abstract: Location information is critical for numerous applications, such as smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and Industry 4.0. In this article, we present the paradigm of holographic network localization and navigation (NLN), namely NLN with holographic radios. We describe holographic NLN enabled by reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RISs), where the phase responses of the RISs are controlled to create desirable electromagnetic (EM) environments for wireless communications. Specifically, we present a mathematical model for signal transmission and reception in the presence of RISs. This model applies to both continuous intelligent surfaces (CISs) and discrete intelligent surfaces (DISs) and accounts for the polarization and directivity of antennas. We review recent research progress on RISs and summarize their characteristics that benefit communication and localization. We present key ingredients of NLN and describe how RISs can be employed to enable holographic NLN. We quantify the performance of RIS-enabled holographic NLN with a case study, showing that RISs can significantly improve localization accuracy, especially in scenarios where line-of-sight (LOS) paths between agents and anchors are obstructed.

      Abstract: Given the rapid development of advanced electromagnetic (EM) manipulation technologies, researchers have turned their attention to the investigation of smart surfaces for enhancing radio coverage. Simultaneously transmitting and reflecting (STAR) intelligent omni-surfaces (IOSs) constitute one of the most promising categories. Although previous research contributions have demonstrated the benefits of simultaneously transmitting and reflecting intelligent omni-surfaces (STAR-IOSs) in terms of wireless communication performance gains, several important issues remain unresolved, including practical hardware implementations and accurate physical models. In this article, we address these by discussing four practical hardware implementations of STAR-IOSs as well as three hardware modeling techniques and five channel modeling methods. We thus clarify the taxonomy of smart surface technologies in support of further investigating the family of STAR-IOSs.

  • Joint Optimization of IRS and UAV-Trajectory: For Supporting Statistical
           Delay and Error-Rate Bounded QoS Over mURLLC-Driven 6G Mobile Wireless
           Networks Using FBC

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xi Zhang;Jingqing Wang;H. Vincent Poor;
      Pages: 55 - 63
      Abstract: Massive ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (mURLLC) has been developed as a new and dominating 6G-standard services to support statistical quality of service (QoS) provisioning while raising several major design issues, including massive connectivity, ultra-low latency, and super-reliability. Correspondingly, a number of emerging 6G candidate enablers, including statistical delay and error-rate bounded QoS provisioning, finite blocklength coding (FBC), intelligent reflecting surfaces (IRS), unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), etc., have been developed to support mURLLC. Specifically, due to the potential improvements in coverage capability as well as the spectral efficiency, both IRS and UAV have been widely proposed to reconfigure wireless propagation environments to compensate for blocked line-of-sight (LOS) communication links and create controllable and smart radio environments. In addition, to solve the massive connectivity issues imposed by mURLLC, integrating UAV with IRS provides a promising means to significantly enhance LOS coverage due to the relatively high altitude and 3D mobility of the UAVs. However, although small-packet communications enabled by FBC are usually employed for massive access to reduce access latency and decoding complexity, how to upper-bound both delay and error rate while efficiently supporting mURLLC in IRS-UAV-integrated systems still remains a challenging problem.

      Authors: Song Noh;Junse Lee;Gilwon Lee;Kyungsik Seo;Youngchul Sung;Heejung Yu;
      Pages: 64 - 73
      Abstract: Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) and sub-terahertz (sub-THz) communications are expected to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the emerging reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) technology. RISs can compensate for large path loss and blockage inherent to the mm-wave and sub-THz frequency bands to yield enhanced communication performance in these bands. To achieve high beamforming gain and realize the enhanced performance in RIS-assisted wireless communication, the acquisition of accurate channel state information (CSI) is critical. In this article, we provide an overview of channel estimation for RIS-assisted mm-wave/sub-THz communication to address technical challenges, tradeoffs, channel estimation frameworks, and training signal design. We summarize the recent RIS-related sparse channel estimation approaches based on beam-space, sparse recovery, array signal processing, and data-driven techniques, highlighting several challenges for future research.

      Authors: Zhong Tian;Zhengchuan Chen;Min Wang;Yunjian Jia;Linglong Dai;Shi Jin;
      Pages: 74 - 82
      Abstract: The reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) has the capability to reconstruct the radio environment of wireless channels, which can alleviate the interference in the spectrum-sharing system (SSS). In this article, the current research directions of the RIS-aided SSS and the proposed methods of the joint optimization about passive beamforming of the RIS and the active beamforming of the access points are summarized and analyzed to obtain good insight into this technique. The RIS can improve the spectral efficiency (SE) and energy efficiency (EE) even in complicated scenarios, such as the SSS coexisting with multiple primary networks (PNs) or several secondary networks (SNs). The simulation results indicate that the deployment of the RIS and the varying number of reflecting elements on the RIS have significant impact on the gain of the RIS brought in the SSS. Although the RIS-aided SSS has some challenges including the discretization of reflecting coefficients on the RIS, it still has huge potentials to be utilized in diverse fields such as vehicular or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) communications.

      Abstract: As the heterogeneous service requirements in vehicular networks (VNs) increase, caching, computing, and communication (3C) resources should be dynamically allocated. Unlike a traditional cellular wireless network with a fixed topology among base stations (BSs), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can constitute an energy-efficient rearrangeable wireless network serving VNs. The 3C resource allocation and UAV-based wireless network topology can be adaptively adjusted according to the service requirements of VNs by appropriate artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms. Although AI algorithms have been well studied in wireless networks, an energy-efficient intelligent frame for UAV service and arrangement should be further investigated.

      Pages: 103 - 111
      Abstract: Currently, autonomous vehicles are able to drive more naturally based on the driving policies learned from millions of driving miles in real environments. However, to further improve the automation level of vehicles is a challenging task, especially in the case of multivehicle cooperation. In recent heated discussions of 6G, millimeter-wave (mm-wave and terahertz (THz) bands are deemed to play important roles in new radio communication architectures and algorithms. To enable reliable autonomous driving in 6G, in this article, we envision collaborative autonomous driving, a new framework that jointly controls driving topology and formulate vehicular networks in the mm-wave/THz bands. As a swarm-intelligence system, the collaborative driving scheme goes beyond existing autonomous driving patterns based on single-vehicle intelligence in terms of safety and efficiency. With efficient data sharing, the proposed framework is able to achieve cooperative sensing and load balancing so that improve sensing efficiency with saved computational resources. To deal with the new challenges in the collaborative driving framework, we further illustrate two promising approaches for mm-wave/THz-based vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications. Finally, we discuss several potential open research problems for the proposed collaborative driving scheme.

      Authors: Elisabeth Uhlemann;
      Pages: 112 - 115
      Abstract: It is inspiring to notice that legislation that helps incorporate autonomous vehicles on our roads in the near future is moving forward. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDoT), has integrated automated vehicles into the existing safety standards such that the text in the standards do not rely on the existence of steering wheels and driver’s seats, which may not exist in fully autonomous vehicles. In addition, the NHTSA has incorporated lane-keeping support, pedestrian automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection, and blind spot intervention into its Five-Star Safety Ratings program. Such driver-assistance technologies are the first steps toward fully autonomous vehicles but, more importantly, toward safer ones. Developing safer vehicles requires significant investments, so it is important that the legislation provide a framework that is predictable, reducing the risk of long-term commitment.

      Abstract: The synthetic aperture is a signal processing technique that collects signal samples across a spatial volume and generates a huge database that helps solve a wide array of problems. For example, a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) synthesizes the motion of a long antenna by combining received signals as it moves along a flight track and provides data with finer spatial resolution that help create 2D images and the 3D reconstruction of objects. Recently, the synthetic aperture has also applied to wireless channel sounding and the over-the-air calibration of wireless devices [1].
