April 6, 2021 - SILVER exhibitor & sponsor

The IEEE Standards Association (USA) will participate at the onsite conference's exhibition.

The IEEE Standards Association Industry Connections program brings together focused interest groups to address standards related considerations in emerging technology areas. The Industry Connections 3D Body Processing group brings together an ecosystem of players to co-develop an assessment of standards needs and to propose new standard(s) around enabling 3D body processing which includes the capture, processing, storage, sharing and (augmented) representation for "Of-the-body" and "On-the-body" technologies. This exploration includes identification and classification of types and uses cases for 3D body processing; identification of gaps in existing nascent standards and recommended practices as 3D body processing spreads beyond first adopters; identifying needs and develop proposals for new standards and best practices for 3D body processing and adjacent technologies (like 2D augmented reality); identifying guides and recommendations for consuming or using body measurements, to better understand the benefits and limitations of this type of data.
