Project information

Wi-Fi Sensing is a new technology which enables motion detection using existing Wi-Fi signals. This technology works by allowing Wi-Fi devices to behave like a bi-static radar system, with the focus of detecting motion and providing information which can be used to enable new Wi-Fi based services. This program is focused on exploring and introducing the technology to the industry, identifying options to increase network efficiency and full compliance for the end user.

Target Audience

Target Audience includes WBA members, Wi-Fi advocates, industry analysts, Wi-Fi operators, Cellular Operators, networking equipment providers, chip set providers.


  • Establish Wi-Fi Sensing & Location deployment guidelines as a new industry standard
  • Enable scalable interoperable solutions by working with WBA members and WBA’s industry partners such as IEEE 802.11 and WFA
  • Provide a testing platform for Wi-Fi Sensing and Location services for interoperability
  • Panoply of new enabled use cases and test plan with Wi-Fi Sensing
  • Develop a set of recommendations on behalf of WBA members for future applications of the solution
