802.11bf is a new Task Group about WLAN sensing within the IEEE 802.11 working group.
WLAN sensing is the use, by a WLAN sensing capable STA(s), of received WLAN signals to detect feature(s) of an intended target(s) in a given environment.
Task Group bf is expected to develop an amendment that defines modifications to the IEEE 802.11 medium access control layer (MAC) and to the Directional Multi Gigabit (DMG) and enhanced DMG (EDMG) PHYs to enhance Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) sensing (SENS) operation in license-exempt frequency bands between 1 GHz and 7.125 GHz and above 45 GHz.
This amendment enables:
