CSI Tools

Although more and more chip vendors start to support CSI for their own products, most researchers still only have limited access to CSI on commodity WiFi. The below are the currently available tools to obtain CSI on certain chipsets.

  1. Intel 5300 CSI Tool by Daniel Halperin, Wenjun Hu, Anmol Sheth, David Wetherall. This is the first CSI tool that made CSI measurement (on Intel 5300) available to the community has fostered tons of works on WiFi sensing.
  2. Atheros CSI Tool by Yaxiong Xie and Mo Li. Atheros CSI Tool is an open source 802.11n CSI tool working with Qualcomm Atheros WiFi NICs, e.g., AR9580, AR9590, AR9344 and QCA9558.
  3. PicoScenes Wi-Fi Sensing System by Zhiping Jiang's group. According to its homepage, PicoScenes supports QCA9300 and IWL5300.

Public Datasets

Different from CV and NLP areas that have many open datasets, there are few in the community of wireless sensing. Luckily, more and more are showing up!
