ETSI ISG for an Augmented Reality Framework


Augmented Reality (AR) is the ability to mix in real-time spatially registered digital content with the real world. AR technologies and applications will play an essential role in Industry 4.0, and the success of smart cities and smart homes. Mobility, retail, healthcare, education, public safety are other examples of domains where AR will bring significant value. AR is quickly advancing into a new phase of enabling context-rich user experiences that combine sensors, wearable computing, the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence. That capability is a unique opportunity of value creation. The need for transparent and reliable interworking between different AR components is key to the successful roll-out of such services.
This ETSI Industry Specification Group (ISG) for an Augmented Reality Framework (ARF) aims to synchronize efforts and identify key use cases and scenarios for developing an ARF with relevant components and interfaces. It will provide technical requirements for AR specifications in order to ensure interoperable implementations that will benefit both technology providers and end-users. The work of the ISG started with an analysis of the AR standards landscape, the analysis of use case requirements and obstacles, and the development of a framework architecture.
