Information technology — Media context and control — Part 5: Data formats for interaction devices (Adopted ISO/IEC 23005-5:2019, fourth edition, 2019-02)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 23005-5:18 (adopted ISO/IEC 23005-5:2016). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 23005-5:2019 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document specifies syntax and semantics of the data formats for interaction devices by providing a standardized format for interfacing actuators and sensors by defining XML schema-based language named Interaction Information Description Language (IIDL). IIDL provides a basic structure with common information for communication with various actuators and sensors in consistency. Device Command Vocabulary (DCV) is defined to provide a standardized format for commanding individual actuator, and Sensed Information Vocabulary (SIV) is defined to provide a standardized format for holding information from individual sensors either to get environmental information from real world or to influence virtual world objects using the acquired information on the basis of IIDL.
