Technology is making many things easier; I can say that our concept is standing example for that. So far we have seen LAN, MAN, WAN, INTERNET & many more but here is new concept of “ RED TACTON ” which makes the human body as a communication network by name.... HAN (Human Area Network).
NTT lab from Japan is currently testing & developing this revolutionary technology. 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 uses the minute electric field generated by human body as medium for transmitting the data. The chips that will be embedded in various devices contain transmitter and receiver built to send and accept data in digital format.
In this paper we will discuss about red tacton, and it’s working states, and applications of red tacton in various fields. And we will compare our red tacton with the other technology for data transmission.
➢ WHAT IS REDTACTON
➢ HOW REDTACTON WORKS
➢ MECHANISM OF COMMUNICATION WITH REDTACTON
• ABOUT HUMAN AREA NETWORKS
➢ THREE FEATURES
• BROADBAND & INTERACTIVE
➢ TECHNOLOGY NOTE
• COMPARISION WITH OTHER NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES
➢ APPLICATION FIELDS
• ONE-TO-ONE SERVICES
• INTUITIVE OPERATION
• NEW BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS
• SECURITY DEVICES
• DATA TRANSMISION DEVICES
We may have imagined the feature as a place crawling with antennas and emitters, due to the huge growth of wireless communications. And it is seems that the current means of transferring data might already have a very serious competitor none other than the human body. Thus NTT labs from Japan has announced that is currently testing a revolutionary technology called “ red tacton ”, which use the electric fields generated by the human body as medium for transmitting the data. The chips, which will embed in various devices, contain a transmitter and receiver built to send and accept data in digital format. The chips can take any type of file such as mp3 music file or mail and convert it in to the format that takes the form of digitals pulse that can be passed and read through a human being electric field .the chip in receiver devices reads these tiny changes and convert the file back into its original form. RedTacton is a new Human Area Networking technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high-speed network transmission path RedTacton uses the minute electric field emitted on the surface of the human body. Technically, it is completely distinct from wireless and infrared.
Why Named RedTacton?
Because with this technology, communication starts by touching (Touch), leading to various actions (Act on) and the colour red to convey the meaning of warmth in communication. Combining these phrases led to the name, "RedTacton".
A transmission path is formed at the moment a part of the human body comes in contact with a RedTacton transceiver. Physically separating ends the contact and thus ends communication. Using RedTacton, communication starts when terminals carried by the user or embedded in devices are linked in various combinations according to the user's natural, physical movements. Communication is possible using any body surfaces, such as the hands, fingers, arms, feet, face, legs or torso. RedTacton works through shoes and clothing as well. [pic]
RedTacton can achieve duplex communication over the human body at a maximum speed of 10 Mbps.
1. The RedTacton transmitter induces a weak electric field on the surface of the body. 2. The electric field sensor (transistor or photonic electric...
