At this year's Mobile Web Congress, W3C is proud to present its visionary activities across a broad spectrum of industries and technologies. Check below!

Ever seen before? - Virtual reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is the next frontier for immersive entertainment experiences. At a recent W3C Workshop on Web and VR, more than 70 organizations came together to demonstrate the benefits that that Web can bring to the VR ecosystem. There was a lot of interest to work on an API that enables writing VR content in the browser. The workshop already lead to new W3C work on 3D on the Web initiated by Apple.

The Web in your car! - W3C Automotive

The W3C Web and Automotive activities include a standards-track group doing the technical specifications, and a Web and Automotive Business Group that identifies use cases and requirements for potential new standards work for vehicles. W3C has enhanced its collaborations with Auto industry associations such as the OMA and the GENIVI Alliance. Learn more and meet on site with Jeff Jaffe.

From IoT to the Web of things

Smart cars, smart cities, healthcare and smart manufacturing are already leading the way in Internet of Things (IoT). But interoperability remains a challenge. W3C is working on opening up the world of IoT application development to Web developers by standardizing relevant APIs and data exchange formats drawing upon core Web technologies (JavaScript, JSON, linked data, etc.). The Web of Things will enable open markets of services embracing different platforms and standards. Learn more and meet on site with Jeff Jaffe.

Checkout! - Payments

Consumers will streamline their checkout with W3C standards as early implementations of the Payment Request API are beginning to appear. In addition, other communities within W3C are incubating ideas around interledger payments, verifiable credentials, digital offers, blockchain and the Web, hardware-based secure services, and paid content models. Learn more and meet on site with Alan Bird.

AV in the browser - WebRTC rocks!

With major Web browser companies having recently made clear their commitment to WebRTC, the already successful deployment of audio-video communications and peer-to-peer data channel is poised to reach new levels. With the 1.0 version getting close to finalization, discussions have already started in what evolutions to WebRTC and the Web platform in general are needed to strengthen it as a full-fledged communications platform. Learn more and meet on site with Dominique Hazaël-Massieux.

Looking for IP streaming? - HTML5 for TV/Video

W3C has launched activities on standards for cloud browsing, where TV-related HTML5 content is rendered in the cloud and sent as video to TV sets (rather than in the TV set or set-top box itself). This can lead to significant cost savings for TV service operators  W3C is also collaborating with CTA WAVE in order to come up with a common baseline for HTML5 support in connected TV sets - current inconsistent support is a major issue for content providers/app developers. Learn more and meet on site with Dominique Hazaël-Massieux.

Are you secured? - Web Authentication

There is a long-standing need to replace the User Name / Password approach to security. The W3C work aims to improve security against phishing and interception attacks by delivering a standard Web API for strong cryptographic authentication. This work started from a Member Submission of FIDO 2.0 from participants in the FIDO Alliance. Learn more and meet on site with Jeff Jaffe.
