At Open AR Cloud we are excited to start building the core building blocks of a decentralized and open “Spatial Web”!
Learn all about it and more at the 2nd State of the AR Cloud symposium!
Munich, Germany — Telekom Lounge, Allianz Arena:
The Open AR Cloud Initiation (OARC) will celebrate its one year anniversary by hosting the 2nd State of The AR Cloud Symposium and Showcase featuring talks, presentations and tech demos from pioneers, startups and industry experts in spatial computing, 5G, Edge Computing, and AR Cloud. In addition, our partner Immersal has chosen our symposium to make a big announcement about their next AR Cloud SDK!
Inventing the future together!
30 years after Tim Berners-Lee developed the first web browser and web server at CERN, OARC will present the Open Spatial Computing Platform (OSCP). The first milestone goal of this program is to develop working implementations of the core pieces of technology needed to demonstrate how an open and interoperable “Spatial Web” would work by the end of 2020. We want you to join us in kicking off this milestone initiative!
The Open AR Cloud (OARC) is a global non-profit organization founded in 2018 with the mission to drive the development of open and interoperable spatial computing technology, data and standards to connect the real and the digital worlds for the benefit of all.
OARC launched on October 18th at AWE EU 2018 in Munich with a call to action for people to join as founding members and partners! The same day the organization published a “Privacy Manifesto for ARCloud Solutions”.
Within the first 2 weeks, hundreds of individuals and dozens of companies and organizations across the spatial computing sector joined as founding members and partners!
On February 21st, more than 50 people participated in the Inaugural Working Group, in which 10 different working groups were started. Over the next few months, the working groups assembled the “State of The AR Cloud Report” that was presented at the first State of The AR Cloud Symposium on May 28th in Santa Clara, CA.
Our organization encourages standards and best practices that preserve privacy, security, and safety.
The Working groups were tasked with providing a clear and complete overview of the AR Cloud from various perspectives. Shortly after the kick-off, the OARC team aimed for its first deliverable to the community: one complete report compiling each working group’s assessments and recommendations for future work, which is a snapshot of the current best knowledge and insights the working groups have gathered. The report is available to everyone and shares everything OARC has learned since the launch of the first State of the ARCloud Symposium.
OARC Partnership with XR Safety Initiative (XRSI)
May 2019, XR Safety Initiative (XRSI) announced its partnership at the first OARC summit in Santa Clara. At the same time, XRSI also announced its Media and Awareness Effort Ready Hacker One. In less than six months, together with their liaison organizations, XRSI has made great strides in identifying industry trends and risks related to XR domain. XRSI founder Kavya Pearlman, together with their Media and EU Strategy Adviser, Marco Magnano will provide us with an overview of XRSI accomplishments and upcoming projects.

Geopose - a universal link between the physical and digital world
In the aftermath of the first symposium, members of Open AR Cloud developed a proposal to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) to establish a standards working group to develop a universal standard for geospatial position and orientation (Geopose). This standard will enable us to represent real or virtual objects with 6 degrees of freedom in a shared geospatial frame of reference.
Members of OGC have until October 31st to vote on whether to start a Geopose Standards Working group
We think everyone interested in AR Cloud technology should follow the outcome of that decision with keen interest. OARC believes geopose is a fundamental building block for an open and interoperable Spatial Web.
OARC believes geopose will be as essential to real-world spatial computing as the URL is to the Web. The same way URLs provides a standardized way for information to link to other information, geopose can provide a universal way to connect the digital world to the physical world and vice versa.
In the Open Spatial Computing Platform (OSCP), we will rely heavily on the use of geopose in many components of our systems architecture.
What to expect at the Symposium
Join us! OARC i is proud to invite all those interested in the follow-up symposium on Wednesday, October 16 at the Telekom Lounge in the Allianz Arena. Ready to learn all the latest insights about AR Cloud technology? Then join us at this important, full-day event, where the OARC-Team & Partners will present updates of their work and celebrate OARC one year anniversary. Leading AR Cloud technology providers will showcase and demonstrate their latest breakthroughs.
Make sure not to miss the 3 Panelists Terry Schussler (Senior Director Spatial Computing Deutsche Telekom) Regine Bonneau (Co-Founder of XR Safety Initiative), Jason Fox ( Head of Spatial Computing Hypergiant Sensory Sciences) & moderated by Marco Tillmann (Product Manager Here Technologies)
The panel will focus on the impact 5G technology will have on spatial computing. The panelists will also discuss the important role the Open AR Cloud will play in this emerging market.
At the evening After Party, you will be able to enjoy AR art and entertainment at the awesome Lebenslust Schwabing BAR & Restaurant!!
Join forces and secure your tickets today! We’re excited and looking forward to seeing you there!
