Pi as a Wi-Fi RTT (802.11mc) access point

Tue Nov 27, 2018 3:35 pm

I'm interested in experimenting with WiFi Round trip time so my app can provide accurate internal location.
Does the Pi have the relevant hardware/firmware to act as an RTT access point?

Looks like the Pi needs to support 802.11mc Fine Time Measurement (FTM) to function as an access point - is this an adapter or host function?
The reason for asking is that when iOS supports WiFi RTT client functionality (Android P has it already) everyone who's doing indoor location for phones will need several low-cost access points that implement the 802.11mc standard. Great opportunity for the Pi!
Can anyone provide any info as to the Pi's capability as a Wi-Fi RTT (802.11mc) access point?
