LECTURE 1) Title: The IEEE 802.11 standard and its constant evolution to meet new demands The importance of technologies based on the IEEE 802.11 standard to our society cannot be overstated. For example, Wi-Fi, one of such technologies, has been the leading wireless connectivity technology used in homes and businesses around the world for more than two decades, and it is estimated to carry about 60% of the world’s mobile traffic today. As the use of wireless connectivity continues to increase and evolve, the IEEE 802.11 standard is constantly evolving to meet new demands, such as improved performance in dense environments and consistent ultra-low latency data transfer. In this keynote talk, we explore current work on future generations of the IEEE 802.11 standard, with emphasis on the main driving forces behind the standard evolution along with new features being considered. We will also discuss the IEEE 802.11 Working Group and efforts to add functionality to IEEE 802.11 technology by extending its use to positioning and sensing applications.
LECTURE 2) Title: Introduction to Wi-Fi Sensing and the IEEE 802.11bf Standard 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 has 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.
