Challenges and objectives

In just a few years eXtended Reality (XR) has gone from being the preserve of researchers in labs to becoming a common consumer product. There are many obvious benefits to this technology, but it also harbours new challenges and a new type of risk.
Changes the way we live

This applies not least to ethics, security, privacy and use across different operating systems. It is in these areas, among others, that XR4HUMAN will make a contribution.

Contribution by Fraunhofer HHI

Dr. Oliver Schreer together with Faisal Mushtaq (Universtity of Leeds, UK) is leading the work package WP6 Demonstration and Validation, including online platform of test cases. The aim is to document and demonstrate best practices and failure cases based on the practical application of the XR Code of Conduct. An online repository of test cases will be provided to enable developers to demonstrate compliance with best practices.
