Abstract: Thanks to the spectacular advances in signal processing and nano-technology, five wireless generations have been conceived over the past five decades. Whilst the 5G systems are being rolled out, the momentum of developing the 6G systems is growing and there is an ongoing debate as to what the next ’killer-application’ is likely to be - could it be joint communications and sensing? Based on the recent treatise entitled “Joint Radar and Communication Design: Applications, State-of-the-Art, and the Road Ahead” TCOM, by Fan Liu, Christos Masouros, Athina P. Petropulu, Hugh Griffiths anad Lajos Hanzo this overview will highlight some of the associated design options and challenges, complemented by potential application scenarios. A range of other design aspect will also be discussed.
