When a new technology capability is primarily driven by research, many of the
components are changing rapidly. As technology for Augmented Reality matures
and becomes the basis of mass market solutions and services, some of the basic
elements need to be published as standards or open industry interfaces in
order for systems to scale and for the needs of industry segments to be met.
There are several open mailing lists dedicated to topic. A series of
community meetings under the AR DevCamp banner during which
the topic of open AR interoperability was raised have been held around
In the Korean market, two meetings of Korean AR experts have already been
conducted in 2010 for the purpose of exploring standards. In addition, the W3C
organized a workshop on Augmented Reality and the Web to explore possible
synergies between Web standards and technologies and the needs of AR.
The topic of AR is also emerging in standards bodies such as ISO, W3D
Consortium, OpenGeoSpatial Consortium and Open Mobile Alliance among others.
A global view of all AR standards activities needs to be maintained, providing
those who are implementing draft standards in their projects and products a
complete catalog of all relevant specifications and potential liaisons.
Goals of this Workshop
This international workshop provides a single forum for representatives of
all standards bodies and the contributors to AR standards development
processes to meet and discuss their activities and progress, and to advance
new specifications more rapidly than is possible without face-to-face interactions.
The international workshop on AR Standards will permit experts to:
- Discuss current technical solutions which have been proposed by and
to the community,
- Prepare first draft specifications of new standards,
- Produce a landscape (mapping) of all AR standards initiatives
and activities, and
- Identify the remaining gaps in AR standards.
