With the rapid growth of the Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) industry, the IEEE VR/AR Working Group has attracted hundreds of experts from all over the world. As the Working Group is an entity-based group, there have been many discussions and strong interest to form an individual-based group to encourage and accommodate wider participation.
The IEEE VR/AR Advisory Board, as the long-anticipated individual-based group, will provide advice, proposals, and other input for the IEEE VR/AR Working Group.
The IEEE VR/AR Advisory Board will also serve as an ideal home for other work items (e.g., white papers, events) while the IEEE VR/AR Working Group will focus on standards development.
We welcome new participants from large and small corporations, academia, industry, and government agencies that are interested in the IEEE-VR-AR Advisory Board. Members will include but are not limited to:
- Device manufacturers
- Content providers
- Service providers
- Technology developers
- Government agencies
- End users and other parties that are relevant to Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR)
