Dear Colleagues, 

The IEEE RAS “Robot 3D Map Data Representation” (3D-MDR) Working Group will hold its next meeting at IROS 2017 in Vancouver on Thursday, September 28th, 09:00-17:00, in room 304, 3rd floor, Vancouver Convention Centre West Building. 

The Working Group has the goal to define a "3D Map Data Representation for Robotics and Automation” standard, following the successful efforts made with the definition of the standard for 2D maps "IEEE STANDARD 1873-2015 - IEEE Standard for Robot Map Data Representation for Navigation” (see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__standards.ieee.org_findstds_standard_1873-2D2015.html&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=0MBHMasq-Yw48UgC9NSuKGI-_apuSxgApXmol8CEdww&s=f9BkTndCL8MKy2Q7ic0C2LAj2Vllhza11g8m14yiQAY&e=).

All interested parties are welcome to participate and contribute. 

Please write to Francesco Amigoni (francesco.amigoni at polimi.it) and Martin Magnusson (martin.magnusson at oru.se) if you would like to attend the meeting or to be kept informed about the activities of the Working Group.

IEEE RAS 3D-MDR Working Group’s scope is to develop a standard that extends the IEEE 1873-2015 Standard for Robot Map Data Representation from two-dimensional (2D) maps to three-dimensional (3D) maps. The standard develops a common representation and encoding for 3D map data, to be used in applications requiring robot operation, like navigation and manipulation, in all domains (space, air, ground/surface, underwater, and underground). The standard encoding is devoted to exchange map data between robot systems, while allowing robot systems to use their private internal representations for efficient map data processing. The standard places no constraints on where map data comes from nor on how maps are constructed.
