WiFi RTT 802.11mc

Google has finally released the ability to use wifi round trip time to show your distance from an access point within 1 meter of accuracy. This would be an amazing addition to home assistant.

EDIT: I also just found this on github

That’s an android app so the addition would need to be to the mobile app. Also without 3 access points it wouldn’t be very useful as it couldn’t triangulate your position. I just had a play with the app. I only have two a access points though.

Yea I figured you would need 3 ap’s I grabbed a 3 pack of the Google WiFi routers. I plan to get another 3 pack later to increase accuracy but I think I’ll hold off on doing that until it’s available to be used with home assistant in some way.
