More than 100B+ connected devices by 2030 per estimates, driven through Smart Phones along with smart home devices and wellness devices driving quality of life and comfort (and connectivity). B2C market is significantly driving adoption of IoT in the consumer products – wearables, gaming and including Internet of Clothing/Food with smart embedded sensors and also driving previously unconnected people into a connected world spurred by emerging technologies such as AR/VR, Edge Computing will enable new markets in the consumer space. Non-functional requirements focused around data ownership/agency, security, safety and privacy will need to be considered critically as consumer IoT applications adoption increases.
The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Industry Connections (IC) program helps incubate new standards and related products and services by facilitating collaboration among organizations and individuals as they hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies. See some of the most recent activities related to Consumer Applications below.
This activity brings together diverse stakeholders to build thought leadership around 3D body processing technology standards in areas such as 3D capture, processing, storage, sharing and (augmented) representation.
This activity focuses on data (public and private) that can be freely used, re-used, and redistributed by anyone—subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and share alike.
This activity considers causes of exclusion from cyberspace which can be addressed by advancing technology for humanity through standardization and related solutions. Exclusion may arise from many causes, including affordability, availability, discrimination, and concern for safety.
This activity will identify use cases that could help develop standards for governing Language Resources for Indian languages. Language Resources include Speech, Language data and descriptions which are made available in a machine readable form and used for developing, evaluating and improving algorithms in the area of natural language and Speech processing.
Consumers often use the megapixel count as a way to evaluate the camera and image quality of their mobile devices. However, there are many other factors that indicate image performance such as clarity under low light conditions, vibrancy of colors, and stabilization when images are in motion. In order to provide consumers with comprehensive and accurate evaluations, mobile device industry stakeholders are seeking ways to differentiate their products from their competitors.
