Introduction to Wi-Fi Sensing and the Ieee 802.11bf Standard

This meeting has moved from Tuesday to Monday, Nov 13. Our speaker is here in Honolulu for the IEEE802.11bf working group meeting. The change was necessary to accommodate the working group schedule.

The new Wi-Fi standard will enable new applications to sense activity in their surroundings.

Wi-Fi sensing is the use of Wi-Fi to enable everyday electronic devices to acquire information and become aware of their surroundings. Interest and research in the area have grown steadily over the past two decades, and Wi-Fi sensing is now used in a wide range of applications, including user presence detection, space occupancy analytics, and home security systems. Due to the significant and growing market interest in the area, a new IEEE 802.11 Task Group (IEEE 802.11bf) was recently formed to develop an amendment to the 802.11 standard that will enhance its ability to support Wi-Fi sensing applications. This talk will begin with an introduction to wireless sensing systems and to Wi-Fi sensing. We will then discuss the main definitions and features of the IEEE 802.11bf draft standard.

This will be an in-person presentation.  Our capacity is 40 in-person and 20 virtual.
