IEEE Future Directions (FDC), a committee of the IEEE Technical Activities Board, identifies technologies as primary focus areas. The FDC initiates and then incubates IEEE wide initiatives involving all the IEEE operating units.
Dedicated to reengineering human senses for better reality, IEEE Digital Reality Initiative is the go-to platform for keeping you at the forefront of virtual reality, augmented reality, human augmentation, and smart robots.
With a deeper understanding of how human senses work, we will be able to advance technologies that capture and reproduce, or synthesize the stimuli of various senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste, etc.); combine the reproduced or synthesized stimuli with the naturally received stimuli in various ways; and help humans or enable machines to perceive, understand, and respond to the stimuli. Plans are underway to capture all the different perspectives via in-depth cross-disciplinary discussions, and to drive to a set of results which will facilitate disruptive innovations and foster cross-industry collaborations globally in the areas of virtual reality, augmented reality, human augmentation, and smart robots.
