Imed Romdhani joined the IEEE “Tactile Internet” Standards Group

15/04/2016

IEEE “Tactile Internet” Standards group is numbered IEEE 1918.1. The group will address standardization of a number of aspects of the Tactile Internet as a 5G and beyond application, creating the toolbox and tools that will be able to achieve the challenging technical characteristics of the Tactile Internet (e.g., ultra-low latency, ultra-high reliability), as well as its visionary usage scenarios. The Tactile Internet is an enabling technology for the remote control of virtual and real objects—in real-time and from any location—involving the conveyance of touch-related information over the Internet, e.g., for haptic clothing. The Tactile Internet will expand the user experience of the Internet from merely the transfer of visual, audio, control-related information and other data, to the transfer and use of manual skills over the Internet through touch information and control actions in response to that touch.
