Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) is partnering with Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD)to host three workshops on May 8th in conjunction with WWRF’s HUDDLE 2023 which be held on May 9th& 10th 2023 in Singapore. The workshops will be held on SUTD Campus, 8 Somapah Rd, Singapore (https://www.sutd.edu.sg/)


The three workshops are:

    • Sustainability Enabled by Beyond 5G (B5G) and 6G Systems,
    • Open RAN and programmable networks
    • AI/ML Enabled ConnectedandAutonomous Vehiclesintheeraof 6G and Beyond


Registration for these workshops is available at: https://eu-ems.com/register.asp?event_id=4722


Information about HUDDL 2023 is available at https://wwrfhuddle.com/


Sustainability Enabled by Beyond 5G (B5G) and 6G Systems (10am – 1pm)

Aligning existing and future mobile communication systems to serve sustainability is a central vision of the WWRF for the benefit of the humanity. Connectivity and telecom systems play a central role to achieve sustainability goals. In its Vision 2030SDG (Sustainability Development Goals), the United Nations has proclaimed access to the Internet as a basic humanright and has said that these goals cannot be achieved without affordable access to the Internet by everyone. We view sustainability in a broad context, similar to what the United Nations has done, and are focusing to address as many goals as possible out of the 17 goals defined by the UN in the realization of Beyond 5G and 6G communication.

The workshop has been organized for the duration of 3 hours with a coffee break of 25 minutes. There will be up to five invited speakers, each focusing on the role of communications technology on one or more SDG goals. The workshop will end with a panel discussion with all the invited speakers.

AI/ML Enabled Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in the era of 6G and Beyond (10am – 1pm)

The field of CAV stands at the confluence of three evolving disciplines – evolving sensors Internet of Things (IoT) technology, emerging standards for connectivity of vehicles, and growing applications of AI/Machine learning to wireless networking. The number of connected IoT devices are likely to grow from 9.5 billion devices in 2019 to 22.5 billion devices or more by 2025. More optimistic estimates project the number of IoT devices in 2025 to be 55 billion connected devices. Fueling the growth in the evolution of vehicles towards total automation is the development of novel sensors, 3D cameras, lidars and radars and their ability to connect to the Internet, and upload data to a cloud. The sensors of an autonomous vehicle collect anywhere from 1.4 TB to 19 TB of data per hour. Consequently, applications of IoT devices and sensors have rapidly expanded to integrate intelligent sensing and processing along with smart applications of the technology into various fields such as smart homes, smart appliances, enterprises, smart transportation including CAV, smart cities, agriculture, energy, security, healthcare, shopping, location-based services including tracking and other similar fields.


The vast amount of raw data collected must by mined for it to become useful in ensuring traffic safety by means such as intelligent rerouting of traffic or distribution of information on roadwork activities or accidents. Machine learning is a mechanism that has become extremely powerful in extracting meaningful data. A number machine learning algorithms exist and can be broadly classified under unsupervised, supervised, and reinforcement learning algorithms. A number of algorithms exist under each category.


With the advent of 5G and the next generation wireless technologies of 6G and beyond, artificial intelligence and machine learning will play a significant role at all levels of the protocol stack and in creating novel applications. This Workshop will address the impact of machine learning and their applications to CAV with several use cases.

Open RAN and Programmable networks (2pm – 5pm)

Open RAN and Programmable Networkstakes a deep dive into the world of Open RAN (ORAN) technology and its potential for revolutionizing the wireless communication industry. ORAN is a cutting-edge network architecture that leverages open, interoperable, and virtualized components to enhance network flexibility, reduce vendor lock-in, and improve network efficiency. In this workshop, attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of ORAN, including its architecture, key components, and benefits. Additionally, experts in the field will share their insights on how ORAN is shaping the future of 6G networks and how programmable networks will play a critical role in the evolution of wireless communication. Network with professionals in the industry and be a part of shaping the future of wireless technology.
