red tacton

  1. 1.  Introduction History Working Principle Features Applications Advantages & Disadvantages Conclusion
  2. 2.  RedTacton is a new Human Area networking technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high speed network transmission path at a speed of 10mbps. RedTacton uses the minute electric fields generated by human body as medium for transmitting the data. It was developed by Japanese Technology NTT Lab.
  3. 3.  NTT , the Japanese telecoms group, and the team of scientists invented the RedTacton system. "Tacton" because with this technology, communication starts by touching (Touch), leading to various actions (Act on). As reported on Gizmodo(02/25/2008), the technology is currently being marketed as a way to turn a human into a swipe card.
  4. 4. Three levels of connectivity:1.Wide Area Networks (WAN)- typically via the Internet.2. Local Area Networks (LAN)-typically via Ethernet or Wi-Fi connectivity.3.Human Area Networks (HAN)- for connectivity to personal information, media and communication appliances.
  5. 5.  For communication terminals should be carried by the user or embedded in devices. It is a Duplex communication. RedTacton uses “SUPER SENSETIVE PHOTONIC” electric field sensor. The body surfaces may be any of our parts like hands,fingers,arms,face,feet,legs.
  7. 7. NTT has made three types of protocols:1)Redtacton Transceiver (PC card type)2) Redtacton Transceiver (Hub type)3) Redtacton Device (Box type)
  8. 8.  Military Applications-to provide gun security. Medical Applications-medicine containers could have chips embedded in them that when touched could send an alarm to the user. Consumer Applications-such as admissions systems and payment processing devices.
  9. 9.  Secure lock administration is possible by combining personal verification tools such as fingerprint ID biometric in the mobile terminal. Red Tacton can carry music or video between headsets, mobile devices, mobile phones. A communication environment can be created easily and at low-cost Communication.
  10. 10.  It’s adoption could be slow since Bluetooth and other radio technologies are already entrenched. It will be comparatively expensive. As it uses electric fields on the surface of the body ,it may cause harm to the body.
  11. 11.  We conclude that, when we compare RedTacton with other technology present today it can give a better performance over others and to connect the network with in short distances RedTacton is best. In this technology there is no problem of hackers as our body is itself a media Human society is entering an era of ubiquitous computing,
