Title: COMMUNICATION SCANNING METHOD AND SYSTEM
Abstract:
An apparatus of a wireless communication device can include radar circuitry and communication circuitry. The radar circuitry can perform one or more proximity measurements. The radar circuitry can detect whether an object is near the apparatus that may affect one or more beamforming scanning operations or affect one or more communication of the apparatus utilizing the one or more beamforming scanning operations based on the one or more proximity measurements. The communication apparatus can adjust one or more beamforming scanning operations based on the one or more proximity measurements and perform the adjusted one or more beamforming scanning operations to reduce beamforming scanning time and/or scanning resources.
