%e-Tacton is a new .uman
Area Networking technology
that uses the surface of the
human ,o-y as a safe! high
spee- network transmission
%e-Tacton uses the minute
electric fiel-emitte- on the
surface of the human ,o-y.
Technically! it is completely
-istinct from wireless an-
A transmission path is forme-
at the moment a part of the
human ,o-y comes in contact
with a %e-Tacton transceiver.
7hysically separating en-s the
contact an- thus en-s

terminals carrie- ,y the user or
em,e--e- in -evices are linke-

accor-ing to the user@s natural!
physical movements.on.
)ommunication is possi,le
using any ,o-y surfaces! such
as the han-s! fingers! arms!
feet! face! legs or torso.
%e-Tacton works through
shoes an- clothing as well.
2.Working principle(
%e-Tacton can achieve -uple8
communication over the human ,o-y at a
ma8imum spee- of 10 ,ps. The
%e-Tacton transmitter in-uces a weak
electric fiel- on the surface of the ,o-y.
The electric fiel- sensor /transistor or
photonic electric fiel- sensor0 -etects electric
fiel- that reaches the %e-Tacton receiver.
Signals are processe- in the receiver circuit
an- the -ata is -ownloa-e-
)ec#anism o' communication
wit# red tacton(
The transmitter sends data based on
fluctuations in the weak electric field
induced in the body. The electric field is
received using suer-sensitive electric
field sensing technology. The naturally
occurring electric fiel- in-uce- on the
surface of the human ,o-y -issipates into
the earth. Therefore! this electric fiel- is
e8ceptionally faint an- unsta,leThe suer-
sensitive electric field sensing technology
measures the weak electric fields induced
by the suer-efficient alternating electric
field induction technology develoed by

,y .uman Area Networks /.ANs0 that
connect the last meter. .uman society is
entering an era of u,iAuitous computing!
where everything is networke-.
5y making .uman Area Networks
feasi,le! %e-Tacton will ena,le u,iAuitous

an- easier for people to use.

physical contact accor-ing to the human@s
natural movements.
4.2 +road,and and
(uple8! interactive communication is
possi,le at a ma8imum spee- of 10,ps.
5ecause the transmission path is on the
surface of the ,o-y! transmission spee-
-oes not -eteriorate in congeste- areas
where many people are communicating at

on the length of the con-uctor to ,e

!. "omparison wit# ot#er
The chart ,elow shows the positioning of
%e-Tacton with respect to e8isting
communication technologies. The focus on
u,iAuitous service has ,rought a,out the
shortening of -istances in communication.
%e-Tacton is positione- as the last 1m
solution to ultimate close3range
communication. "ireless communication
creates connections when signals arrive!
allowing for easy connections ,ecause
connectors are unnecessary. .owever! seen
from another aspect! the arriving signals
can ,e intercepte-! so security ,ecomes an
issue. "ire- communication transmits -ata
,etween two connection points! so
interception is -ifficult an- security can ,e
consi-ere- to ,e high. .owever!
connectors an- ca,les are a nuisance.
Taking the a,ove points in account!
%e-Tacton is situate- -irectly ,etween
wireless an- wire- communication. #n
other wor-s! %e-Tacton allows for easy
connection without connectors! while at
the same time allowing transmission of
-ata only ,etween two contact points. #t
thus has the feature of ,eing -ifficult to

compare %e- Tacton with other
technology present to-ay it can
