Dagstuhl Ubicomp - Abstract

Intrabody Communication

Kurt Partridge, University of Washington

Intrabody communication is a way for electronic devices to communicate by sending low-power electrical signals through the body. We have constructed prototypes of these transceivers and measured their performance under various circumstances, including location of coupling on the body, size of touched transceiver plates, etc. A simple application taxonomy is presented that distinguishes applications according to data transfer direction and complexity of information use.
