ABSTRACT
Discusses the nonprofit organization called the InfraRed Data Association (IRDA). Includes many of the world's largest and most influential computer companies; Goal is to create a single standard for short-range, wireless data exchanges via infrared beams; Hopes to create a standard that addresses such issues as how to deal with the other infrared systems already in use; Hewlett-Packard's effort to fashion a common method for sending and receiving data using infrared light beams.
