ETSI is an international non-profit organization that produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, broadcast, and internet technologies. At the beginning of December 2017 a new Industry Specification Group called Augmented Reality Framework (ISG ARF) has been launched by ETSI.
This new group aims to synchronize efforts and identify key use cases and scenarios for developing an Augmented Reality (AR) framework 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 group elected Ms Muriel Deschanel from b<>com as chair and Ralf Schäfer from Fraunhofer HHI as the vice chair of the organization. The work of the ISG will start with an analysis of the AR standards landscape, the analysis of use case requirements and obstacles, and the development of a framework architecture.
