 ieee standards metaverse webinar seriesIEEE Metaverse Congress

The Metaverse is the latest futuristic technology trend capturing public attention. It has been 30 years since the term "metaverse" was coined by Neal Stephenson in his 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash, and 48 years since Steve Mann invented, and coined the term, "metavision" as extended reality using wearable computing. Metaverse may refer to a kind of experiences in which the outside world is perceived by the users (human or non-human) as being a universe that is actually built upon digital technologies as a different universe ("Virtual Reality"), a digital extension of our current universe ("Augmented Reality" or "Mixed Reality"), or a digital counterpart of our current universe ("Digital Twin"). Named after the universe, a metaverse shall be persistent, and should be massive, comprehensive, immersive, and self-consistent. Described with "meta", a metaverse should be ultra-realistic, accessible, pervasive, and may be decentralized. In a narrow sense, metaverse may be simply defined as Persistent Virtual Reality (PVR). In a broad sense, metaverse is the advanced stage and long-term vision of Digital Transformation.

 Today, the Metaverse is like a magic word that inspires infinite imaginations of countless people from various professions and backgrounds. There are different metaverses in the eyes of different people, but the biggest consensus on the Metaverse so far is that it will have a profound impact on our daily work, play, and life, across all industries and sectors, reshaping the economy and society for all humankind.

  • On-Demand [6 July 2022]: Kickoff Session: Demystifying and Defining the Metaverse
  • On-Demand [9 July 2022]: Clinical Support Robots for the Aging: The Human Design Factors, Utility, and Functionality
  • TBD 2022

AgeTek Innovation: Bringing Robots Home to Support the Aging, Healthy, and Assisted Living

The aging population is growing. It is estimated that by the year 2050, people age 65+ globally will reach 1.5 billion (WHO). Not all aging individuals live in institutional settings, have family caregivers, and/or require assisted living. Who or what will be able to fill the gap in a way that provides quality support for their needs with dignity, privacy, and security?

This four-part webinar mini-series will bring global multi-disciplinary experts to discuss the pragmatic applications of using robotic caregivers and companions to support this aging population. The technology is there and the need is immediate, yet the challenges continue to be unaddressed. On this blank canvas of opportunity, where can open and consensus-built technical and data standards, enhanced policy guidance, and overall education and awareness help drive trust in the adoption of our new robotic caregivers and supporters?

  • On-Demand: The Robotic Assistant for the Aging: The Unbalanced Struggle between Benefits and Challenges
  • 14 September 2022: Clinical Support Robots for the Aging: The Human Design Factors, Utility, and Functionality
  • 30 November 2022: All Considerations In: Enabling Robotics to Support the Aging with Dignity, Privacy and Security
    18 January 2022: Is it Unanimous? Establishing Trust Across the Board in Robotics to Support the Aging

TSN to the Fore of the Transition to 5G with IEEE 802.1CM™ 8922sapromo transition to5g

IEEE 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is an enabler of Industry 4.0, i.e., smart factory of cyber physical systems. TSN is the foundation to provide connectivity and real-time quality of service to time and mission critical industrial applications on converged networks of operations technology and information technology and converging multiple independent applications in one network enabling real-time communication on the same infrastructure (cables, bridges). TSN meets these requirements by providing interoperability via open standards. TSN provides synchronization and supports real-time communication for, e.g., closed loop control over a single standard Ethernet network.

The Time-Sensitive Networking Webinar Series will include the following topic areas:

  • Fronthaul – IEEE 802.1CM • Jessy Rouyer/Janos – 8 Sept.2022
  • Industrial Automation – IEC/IEEE 60802 – Ludwig Winkel – October 2022
  • Automotive Ethernet – IEEE P802.1DG and Aerospace Ethernet – IEEE P802.1DP / SAE AS6675 – November 2022

lEEE Standards Association Presents: Electromagnetic Compatibility Webinar Series426 22sapromo webseries

The IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (EMCs) and IEEE Standards Association are hosting a series of webinars to create awareness of some of the trending topics related to reducing electromagnetic interference in areas such as automotive technologies, consumer electronics, wireless communications, and 5G. Registering for the webinar series gives you access to previous and upcoming webinars.

With Electric Vehicles (EV) becoming more common, the electromagnetic noise they generate is an issue that more designers must face. Karen Burnham, Principal Scientist at Electro Magnetic Applications, brings lessons learned from years of troubleshooting electric vehicles, both hybrid and plug-in, to discuss some of the most important EV noise factors.

The Electromagnetic Compatibility Webinar Series will include the following topic areas:

  • Noise Sources in EV – 19 May 2022
  • ADAS EMS Testing – July 2022
  • EMI of an Inverter-Driven Power Train – Sept. 2022
  • Panel of all the above – Nov. 2022
