Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) is the perception of digital information-usually visual perception-synchronized with objects and places in the physical world around the user. This IEEE SA Innovations Space provides a concise reference point for all things in SA related to AR.

Augmented Reality

You are invited to participate in our programs and to discover AR for yourself in our materials. You can find out what current IEEE standards and projects are most relevant to the field of AR. And the IEEE SA has an informative FAQ to help you.

The IEEE AR in 2020 scenarios project developed the most likely scenarios for mobile, personalized information capture and delivery with AR in the year 2020. A white paper on the business landscapes for AR in 2020 is currently available.

The IEEE SA has started a new IEEE SA Industry Connections program to develop campaigns and projects to ensure that AR reaches its full potential as an enhancement to human life and information use.

IEEE City Visions

IEEE Standards and The City

Check out how IEEE standards are leveraged in your everyday life to help to enable technology. This augmented reality demonstration offers you 4 short scenarios in which our character “Tesla” utilizes various IEEE standards during 1 day…on his commute into work, at work, as well as his leisure activities. View Full Size Mural

IEEE Standards Help Enable Medical Devices.

IEEE Standards & Medical Device Communications

Check out how IEEE standards help enable various medical devices through the secure exchange of information among the device, patient, and physician.

The future of Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality In Your Future

This virtual event series features monthly presentations followed by a moderated expert panel discussion. By combining these two formats, IEEE SA provides value to both those who are new to AR and those who are familiar with the technologies and their uses and who will benefit from hearing a panel of experts share insights into large opportunities and obstacles. Learn More About Augmented Reality
