Title: Wi-Fi Sensing: Applications, Challenges and Current status
Speaker: Aleksey Kureev, IITP RAS, NRU HSE, MIPT.
Abstract: In Wi-Fi Sensing, radio information obtained during signal processing in Wi-Fi receivers is used to detect environmental changes caused by the motion of objects, pets, and people. Using one or multiple collaborating Wi-Fi devices to sense the environment and detect motion has many benefits and enables many new business opportunities. Network providers can utilize information made available through sensing to provide a new set of services to customers. Hardware original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and chipset vendors can add Wi-Fi Sensing as a feature to differentiate products. Advances in signal processing and feature extraction algorithms produce even more detailed information. As Wi-Fi sensing technology matures, new and more complex use cases are enabled. To make Wi-Fi Sensing a viable and ubiquitous technology, standardization is needed. In this talk, we will discuss the fundamentals of Wi-Fi Sensing and gaps in existing Wi-Fi technology that limits the range of applications. Also, we will discuss the work of the 802.11bf Task group, responsible for improving Wi-Fi in sensing applications.
