A SEMINAR REPORT

ANVINDER SINGH ECE-II, 7TH SEMESTER 09615002809

Definition
A human area networking technology.
TACTON: action triggered by touching

(TOUCH ACT ON).


RED: Auspicious color as per Japanese culture.

. Omnipresent services require three levels of connectivity : WAN, LAN & HAN. It relies on weak electric fields on the surface of body instead of electromagnetic waves as a transmission medium. the weak electric fields affect the optical properties of an electro-optic crystal. The extent to which the optical properties are changed is detected by laser light which is then converted to an electrical signal by a detector circuit.
HAN safely turns the surface of human body into a

transmission path at speeds of upto 10Mbps between any two points on the body. It uses CSMA/CD protocol.

WORKING OF REDTACTON

TRANSCEIVER

Electric field on the receiver side affects the electro

optic properties of the crystal. This extent of change is detected by the laser light which is then converted to the detector circuit. Electro optic crystal+ laser light = photonic electric field sensor.

FEATURES OF REDTACTON
1. Communication with just a step touch, grip, walk,

stand.
2. Broadband and interactive- Max speed upto 10

Mbps, many users can work simultaneously.


3. Applicable to any media- metal, water, glass, wood

etc.

APPLICATIONS
One to One services
Intuitive operation of personal information Device personalization

New behavior patterns


Marketing applications Security applications

Comparison with other services


Neither wireless nor wired.
Difficult to intercept. Secured connection.

Advantages
Data transfer is faster and easier through this

technology. Data loss during transfer is less. Use of minimum amount of power (of some mili volt range). More secure.

Disadvantages:
It can be useful within few centimeters.
Effects on human body is still under research.
