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

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.
