IEEE Standards Working Groups

In today’s interconnected world of technologies, industries, and geographical areas, standards are becoming more important than ever in simplifying product development, easing trade, and speeding adoption. IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) connects people from across the globe to raise standards for technology.

At IEEE SA, interested individuals and organizations form Working Groups to create and write standards. Through the open platform, volunteer participants collaborate to identify the market need for standardization, exchange industry knowledge, and expertise, and reach a consensus to push the realization of standards.

From WiFi to blockchain, and sensors to medical devices, IEEE SA brings together more than 600 active Working Groups that represent nearly 1,200 active standards and 1,000 projects striving to make people’s everyday lives easier. Whether you’re a consumer or in business, an educator or a policymaker, you can find a Working Group that relates most to your needs. Discover more about IEEE SA Working Groups, read important updates, and hear volunteer stories.

Looking to get involved in standards development? See how you can make your mark and raise the world’s standards.

Advancing Autonomous Robot Development and Adoption Through Standards

Advancing Autonomous Robot Development and Adoption Through Standards

Autonomy is the ability to perform tasks without help. In the case of autonomous robots, obstacles may arise internally like an electrical short or a broken part or externally such as encountering debris. These instances can cause mission interruption or failure. Greater autonomy requires adaptive mechanisms to overcome disturbances that…

Enabling Rural Access to Safe Electricity

Residents of many small villages in India no longer have to end their workday when the sun goes down. Because of the work of Rajesh Kunnath and other volunteers at the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) designing installation rules for basic electricity supply from a renewable source such as an…
A New Standard for a New Era in Space

A New Standard for a New Era in Space

The mapping applications on our smartphones and in our cars rely on signals from a constellation of navigation satellites to pinpoint our location. When these signals are reflected back into space, they are imprinted with data about the Earth’s surface features and conditions. The distortions and delays of the reflected…
