Wireless spectrum is a limited resource, and the rapid increase in demand for wireless communication-based services is increasing day by day. Hence, maintaining a good quality of service, high data rate, and reliability is the need of the day. Thus, we need to apportion the available spectrum in an efficient manner. Dual-Function Radar and Communication (DFRC) is an emerging field and bears vital importance for both civil and military applications for the last few years. Since hybridization of

Compared to the existing surveys, we explore an open research issue on radar and mobile communication operating with mutual benefits based on collaboration in terms of spectrum sharing. Additionally, this paper provides important perspectives for future research of DFRC technology.
