The next mainstream computing platform will likely be a headset that offers its wearer an immersive extended reality (XR) visual and auditory experience. Applications range from recreation to education to defense. Various 6-degree-of-freedom headset tracking techniques, including lighthouse-based tracking, inside-out systems based on visual SLAM, and GNSS-IMU-based tracking, are being developed to estimate the position and orientation of the headset accurately and with low latency. Accurate time determination and a common reference frame are required to support collaborative XR. This panel will explore the opportunities and challenges of XR as it relates to PNT.

Panel Members: 

  1. Dr. Chris Heckman, Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado at Boulder
