Wi-Fi Aware

The Wi-Fi Alliance is creating a new certification program called Wi-Fi Aware that seeks to provide information about where a device is in relation to other devices and to share contextual information with the user without sucking down a lot of juice. For example in a stadium it might be used to tell a person that there’s a shorter line for concessions just ten feet a way or in an airport it might share gate information or let you know one of your colleagues is also nearby in the terminal.
