New function blessing! Wi-Fi 7 standard 802.11be exposure

According to foreign media reports, Wi-Fi 6 (ie 802.11ax) is one of the hottest buzzwords in the technology field, and many organizations are exploring new Wi-Fi use cases. In the future, this technology will not only transmit data faster, but even detect the user’s physical location and breathing rate.

Wi-Fi capabilities being explored by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) are helping to shape the new Wi-Fi standard 802.11be, including connectivity between vehicles and motion detection within homes. The latter is of particular interest because it allows device makers to build health features around simple devices like routers.

IEEE President Paul Nikolich said: “We want to detect people moving from room to room without any sensors. The technology is also sensitive enough to even detect the user’s breathing rate, Because when they breathe, they change the RF characteristics and the channel characteristics.”

But that doesn’t guarantee Wi-Fi 7 will add human detection when it’s released. Not to mention, it will be at least four years before the next Wi-Fi standard is released. Still, the possibility of allowing home networks to detect human presence is significant, as it could open the door to more innovations.
