As electronic devices become smaller, lower in power requirements, and less expensive, we have begun to adorn our bodies with personal information and communication appliances. Such devices include cellular phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), pocket video games, and pagers. Currently, there is no method for these devices to share data. Networking these devices can reduce functional i/o redundancies and allow new conveniences and services.
Human society is entering an era of ubiquitous computing when networks are seamlessly interconnected and the information is always accessible at our fingertips. The practical implementation of ubiquitous services requires three levels of connectivity:
Red Tacton is a break-throw technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high-speed network transmission path. In the past, Bluetooth, infrared communications (IrDA), radio frequency ID systems (RFID), and other technologies have been proposed to solve the connectivity problem. But Red Tacton takes a different technical approach. So we, in this paper are explaining the unique new functional features and enormous potential of Red Tacton as a Human Area Networking technology.
We are heading toward an electronic future where information will be accessible at our fingertips, whenever and wherever needed. Some of the computing and communication equipment required to provide this intimate and immediate access to information will be incorporated into our attire. Just as a glance at today’s wristwatch saves a trip to the nearest clock, a glance at tomorrow’s wristwatch will replace finding a terminal to check e-mail.
Red Tacton is a new Human Area Networking technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high-speed network transmission path. Red Tacton is a break-through technology that, for the first time, enables reliable high-speed HAN. In the past, Bluetooth, infrared communications (IrDA), radio frequency ID systems (RFID), and other technologies have been proposed to solve the “last meter” connectivity problem. However, they each have various fundamental technical limitations that constrain their usage, such as the precipitous fall-off in transmission speed in multi-user environments producing network congestion.
WHAT IS RED TACTON?
Red Tacton was introduced by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) who combined touch and action to coin the term Tacton, and then added the word Red – a warm color – to emphasize warm and cordial communications, creating the name RedTacton. It is a technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high-speed network transmission path.
RedTacton has three main functional features they are given as follows,
Touch: Touching, gripping, sitting, walking, stepping and other human movements can be the triggers for unlocking or locking, starting or stopping equipment, or obtaining data.
Broadband & Interactive: Bandwidth does not deteriorate even with duplex operations and simultaneous access by many users! Duplex, interactive communication is possible at a maximum speed of 10Mbps. Because the transmission path is on the surface of the body, transmission speed does not deteriorate in congested areas where many people are communicating at the same time.
RedTacton takes a different technical approach. Instead of relying on electromagnetic waves or light waves to carry data, RedTacton uses weak electric fields on the surface of the body as a transmission medium.
Red Tacton has a wide variety of applications, some of the applications are as follows:
ONE TO ONE SERVICES:
Enable one-to-one services tailored to the user’s situation and tastes.
Elimination of human error:
RedTacton devices embedded medicine bottles transmit information on the medicines’ attributes. If the user touches the wrong medicine, an alarm will trigger on the terminal he is carrying.
When a consumer stands in front of an advertising panel, advertising and information matching his or her attributes is automatically displayed. By touching or standing in front of items they are interested in, consumers can get more in-depth information. Inside a shop, shoppers can view related information on their mobile terminals immediately after touching a product.
Instant Private Data Exchange:
By shaking hands, personal profile data can be exchanged between mobile terminals on the users. (Electronic exchange of business cards)
PERSONALISATION OF MOBILE PHONES:
PERSONALIZATION OF AUTOMOBILE:
An electrically conductive sheet is embedded in the table.
RedTacton can carry music or video between headsets, mobile devices, mobile phones, etc.
USER VERIFICATION MANAGEMENT:
Carrying a mobile RedTacton-capable device in one’s pocket, ID is verified and the door unlocked when the user holds the doorknob normally.
Secure lock administration is possible by combining personal verification tools such as fingerprint ID or other biometric in the mobile terminal.
COMMUNICATION IN NEW DOMAIN:
Potential for use as a communication method in outer space and underwater.
Potential for use as a communication method with devices inside the human body.
RedTacton has a wide range of unique new functional features and enormous potential as a Human Area Networking technology. NTT is committed to quickly identifying and opening up those application areas with the most commercial promise for RedTacton, a business development process to be coordinated under NTT’s.
This technology definitely stands out with perfection, when the transfer of data is fast, feasible and more importantly reliable. So, in a few years from now, everything is going to fall under this super technology.
