With the evolution of mobile communication network, the sensing capability generated from mobile communication network will bring clear social value and economic benefit in many industries. For the transportation industry, its sensing capability can monitor moving vehicles in real time, improve road traffic efficiency, and provide more reliable assurance for autonomous driving in the future. For low-altitude security, it can monitor the airspace of a specific area and quickly detect unmanned aerial vehicles that intrude into a specific area. Harmonized communication and sensing proposed in 5G-Advanced, can build competitive sensing capabilities on cellular networks and greatly improve sensing accuracy and coverage by making innovations in high-isolation antennas, super-resolution sensing algorithms, and cooperative sensing technologies, which will open up new industry market space for mobile communication networks.

Key words: 5G-Advanced, harmonized communication and sensing, wireless sensing
