This paper presents a novel millimeter wave communication (comms) and radar sensing co-existing dataset. The measurement campaign was performed for blockage prediction with diverse human activities. 26 GHz Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) multi-beam communication testbed and 77 GHz Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) radar multi-monostatic set-up were configured. The corresponding bistatic channel state information and multi-monostatic backscattered channels are pre-processed for preliminary domain shift analysis by means of visual pre-processed sample inspection. Domain shift inside a blockage prediction model occurs when measurement circumstances under which model training data was collected significantly differ from the model inference measurement circumstances. Domain shifts cause model performance deterioration in the inference phase. No previous millimeter wave blockage prediction research considers mitigating domain shift in prediction models. We argue that this is caused by no millimeter wave blockage prediction datasets being available with samples collected under a large number of different measurement circumstances. Analysis results indicate presence of different signature presence levels in preprocessed radar backscattered channel samples and different doppler bin energy magnitudes and locations in pre-processed OFDM testbed channel state information samples captured under varying measurement circumstances. Therefore, creating a large enough blockage prediction dataset with samples captured under varying measurement circumstances that induce hard enough domain shifts between model train and inference situations is important to allow model domain shift mitigation research.
