Some 6G use cases include augmented reality and high-fidelity holograms, with this information flowing through the network. Hence, it is expected that 6G systems can feed machine learning algorithms with such context information to optimize communication performance. This paper focuses on the simulation of 6G MIMO systems that rely on a 3-D representation of the environment as captured by cameras and eventually other sensors. We present new and improved Raymobtime datasets, which consist of… Expand

This work proposes an intermediate virtual channel representation that captures the essence of physical modeling and provides a simple geometric interpretation of the scattering environment and shows that in an uncorrelated scattering environment, the elements of the channel matrix form a segment of a stationary process and that the virtual channel coefficients are approximately uncor related samples of the underlying spectral representation.
