INTRODUCTION 1. Thus from announced currently NTT Japan that testing labs has is a revolutionary technology called “ RedTacton ”. And it is seems that the current already means have a of very transferring data might serious competitor none other than the human body. is emitted on the surface of Technically. due to the huge growth of wireless communications.1 WHAT We place antennas may embed in various devices.the chip in receiver devices reads these tiny changes and convert the file back into its original form. REDTACTON? imagined the feature as a crawling and emitters.1. which will 2 . high-speed network transmission path RedTacton uses the minute the electric human it field body. which use the electric fields generated by the human body as medium for transmitting the data. contain a transmitter and receiver built to send and accept data in digital IS have with format. The chips. 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 . RedTacton is a new Human Area Networking technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe.

2 WHY NAMED REDTACTON? 3 . Using RedTacton. A transmission path is formed at the moment a part of the human body comes in contact with a RedTacton transceiver. legs RedTacton works through shoes and clothing as well. communication starts by touching (Touch). HOW REDTACTON WORKS RedTacton can achieve duplex communication over the human body at a maximum speed of 10 Mbps.completely distinct from wireless and infrared. "RedTacton". Combining these phrases led to the name. fingers. face. feet. communication starts when terminals carried by the user or embedded in devices various natural. Communication surfaces. movements. separating Physically ends the Because with this technology. possible using any body hands. in contact and thus ends communication. arms. such or as is the torso. leading to various actions (Act on) and the colour red to convey the meaning of warmth communication. are linked in combinations physical 2. according to the user's 1.

A Japanese transmitter induces a weak electric field on the surface of the body.3. The electric field sensor (transistor or electric sensor) reaches RedTacton receiver. According AND to NTT (NIPPON TELEGRAPH TELEPHONE CORPORATION) Laboratories. 2. Signals are processed in the receiver circuit and the data is 1. your whole body data. photonic field detects the company has discovered that the best cables may be your arms and legs.

field is exceptionally faint and unstable. The naturally applications best served by Human Area Networks (HANs) that connect the last meter. The electric superfield sensitive everything 5 .2 ABOUT HUMAN MECHANISM OF COMMUNICATION WITH REDTACTON AREA NETWORKS In addition to the The sends data transmitter based on WANs LANs. The electric field is received using super-sensitive electric field sensing technology. By making Human Area Networks feasible. NTT. 2. (Internet) there and are fluctuations in the weak electric field induced in the body. RedTacton will enable ubiquitous services based on human-centered interactions and therefore an era of is computing. sensing measures the induction technology the weak electric fields induced by super-efficient technology alternating electric field developed by NTT. occurring electric field induced on the surface of the human this body electric dissipates into the earth. Therefore.downloaded in seconds via your elbow. Human society is entering ubiquitous where networked. and the team of scientists that invented the “RedTacton” system. envisage a future in which the human body acts as a non-stop conduit for information.

connectors and cables are a nuisance.considered to be high.2 SYSTEM service is provided based on SAFETY . However. 5. Attribute information recorded in the RedTacton device is sent to The the the touched objects. It thus has the feature of being difficult to intercept. appropriate attribute 8 4. Taking the above points in account. while at the same time allowing transmission of data only between two contact (Wireless station that does not require license) RedTacton meets the standard for weak wireless station as set by Japanese telecommunication regulations 5. RedTacton is situated directly between wireless and wired communication. APPLICATI ON FIELD Five major application points. RedTacton allows for easy connection without connectors. fields using RedTacton are introduced. In other words.1 ONE-TO-ONE SERVICES Enable one-to-one services tailored to the user's situation and tastes.

There's no "operation" any more. two RedTacton terminals not data but also the can only ELIMINATION HUMAN ERROR OF transceivers embedded in communicate MARKETING APPLICATION control or configuration instructions itself needed to operate devices. Cable connections is used as are eliminated. Just intuitive human interaction.information received by the RedTacton receiver. 9 .2 INTUITIVE OPERATION Natural movements and actions are the trigger. The body transmission medium 5.

10 .3 PERSONALIZATION Digital lifestyle can be instantly A personalized pre-recorded with just a touch.- When device another with RedTacton is capabilities touched. configuration script can be embedded in a mobile terminal with built-in RedTacton transceiver. personalization data scripts downloaded automatically. and configuration can be 5.

4 NEW BEHAVIOR PATTERNS Various conductors and dielectrics can be used as RedTacton communication media. 11 .5 SECURITY APPLICATIONS Automatic with just a touch. and when. Corresponding RedTacton receivers are installed at security check points. The system can authentication provide user authentication and log-in 5. ID and privileges are recorded in a mobile RedTacton device.5. and record who touched the device. and this has the potential to create new behavior patterns.
