Google launches ‘WifiNanScan App’ on Play Store to measure accurate distance between phones

Published

on

For as far back as a few Android releases, Google has been working with local discovery technologies that applications can exploit to discover close by objects and users. Its latest contribution is the Google Play release of a “WifiNanScan App” for developers to try different things with Wi-Fi Aware.

Wi-Fi Aware — otherwise called Neighbor Awareness Networking (NAN) — permits Android 8.0+ gadgets to “discover and connect directly to each other without any other type of connectivity between them,” like a active internet connection. The APIs work to find close by gadgets and make network connections that can “share large amounts of data” or send short messages.

Google says this technology supports “higher throughput rates across longer distances than Bluetooth connections.” Possible use cases promoted by the Wi-Fi Alliance include:

  • Securely send an document to a printer without first logging onto the network
  • View a restaurant menu and make a reservation while walking by without a internet connection, in any event, when the eatery is shut
  • Automate and timestamp school check-ins and roll-call
  • Streamline airport security, customs, and immigration processing flows utilizing mobile identification (ID) like a driver’s license or passport without expecting travelers to introduce an physical ID

Recently, Developed with Google released the WifiNanScan App (Play Store) to exhibit how you can utilize NAN to get the distance between two devices:

With this application it is feasible to get a distance measurement with an precision of around 1 meter with telephones up to 15 meters apart. Engineers, OEMs and analysts can utilize this tool to validate distance/range measurements enabling the development of peer-to-peer ranging and data transfer, discover my telephone and setting mindful applications dependent on the WiFi Aware/NAN API.

It supplements the WifiRttScan App released two years prior to utilize Wi-Fi Round Trip Time for indoor positioning as an option in alternative to GPS.

In Android 12, Google made a few enhancements to Wi-Fi Aware, including efficiency improvements and addressing lost connections.

Pre-order details for the Galaxy S23 series are available on Samsung.com

Published

on

According to current predictions, Samsung will increase the cost of the Galaxy S23 series in Europe (in comparison to the S22 models from the previous year). The business is also getting ready to offer the customary discounts to lessen the blow. Even though the page still displays the current S22 phones, it turns out that someone altered the small print on the Samsung UK Business portal with information on the S23 pre-order.

Remember that this is a business portal, thus the 10% discount mentioned in #4 probably doesn’t apply to you. For people, there might be comparable discounts, though.

It is evident from the dates that Samsung will launch a pre-order promotion through February 16. That is to be expected because the business typically launches its sales on the first Friday that follows the announcement.
