Human Area Network
• Human area networks
connect mobile
terminals and devices
within the human
environment.
• It uses the human
body for networking

2
What is Red Tacton?
• 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.

3
Red Tacton Transceiver

4
Principle
• Red Tacton relies upon the principle that
the optical properties of an electro-optic
crystal can vary according to the changes
of a weak electric field.

5
General Theory

6
How Red Tacton works?

7
Mechanism of Communication

8
Features
• Touch: Communication with just a touch or
step
• Broadband & Interactive: Duplex,
interactive communication is possible at a
maximum speed of 10Mbps
• Any-Media: In addition to the human body,
various conductors and dielectrics can be
used as transmission media.

9
Advantages over Bluetooth
• Body-based networking is more secure
than broadcast systems, such as
Bluetooth, which have a range of about
10m
• Network congestion due to fall in
transmission speed in multi user
environments is avoided

10
One-to-One services

• An alarm sounds
automatically to
avoid accidental
medicine ingestion.

• Touching advertising
and receive
information

11
Intuitive operation of
personal information devices
• Touch a printer to
print

• Instantaneous
private network via
personal handshake

12
Device personalization
• Just sitting in the
seat triggers the car
to load all its presets
as the way you like.

• Just touching a
phone makes it your
own.

13
New behavior patterns
• Connect to the
network just by
putting a lap-top on a
table

• Wireless headset

14
Security applications
• User verification and
unlocking with just a
touch

• Automatic access log
for confidential
document storage

15
Future Developments
• Reduction in size to be embedded in
other communication devices
• Artificial Intelligence in Red Tacton
