This document describes haptic codecs for the data reduction of kinesthetic and tactile signals in response to the Call for Contributions issued by the Haptic Codecs Task Group for the standardization of Haptic Codecs for the Tactile Internet (IEEE P1918.1.1). Three types of codecs are presented in this document, including the no-delay kinesthetic codec (Part I), the delay-robust kinesthetic codec (Part II) and the tactile codec (Part III). Additionally, this document introduces handshaking and metadata exchange mechanisms for the exchange of the capabilities of haptic devices (Part IV). This document also provides additional information (in informative annexes) for codec implementation and evaluation, such as the reference software and hardware setups for kinesthetic and tactile codecs, and cross-validation results.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
IEEE Draft Standard for Tactile Internet: Application Scenarios, Definitions and Terminology, Architecture, Functions, and Technical Assumptions
This standard defines a framework for the Tactile Internet, including descriptions of various application scenarios, definitions and terminology, functions, and technical assumptions. This framework prominently also includes a reference model and architecture, which defines common architectural entities, interfaces between those entities, and the mapping of functions to those entities. The Tactile Internet encompasses mission critical applications (e.g., manufacturing, transportation, healthcare and mobility), as well as non-critical applications (e.g., edutainment and events).
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
