About ComSoc

The Tactile Internet (TI) sub-committee will focus on exploring and elucidating all facets of the next generation of “Tactile Internet” technology, business and societal gaps and challenges. The objectives of the TI Sub-committee are to facilitate the worldwide harmonization of research, pre-standardization and best practices for deployment user scenarios of the global TI ecosystem, to design the built-in security and privacy and to explore ways the tactile technology can be realized in different segments such as in engineering, automobile, transport and logistics, health service, and public. The TI Sub-committee will target the understanding of the tactile requirements, the specification and identification of tactile use cases, defining system specifications to meet these requirements, developing breakthrough technology to the identified challenges of the tactile internet, and enabling of Internet protocols over the next generation of empowered devices in order to reach convergence and end to end transparency through IPv6.

The Strange, Strange World of Sub Wavelength Signal Manipulation: How Meta Materials Can Change Wireless Communications

Much of how we look at communications theory today is based on the assumption that the communications signal rides on top of a nice regular sinusoid that is easily removed to provide a linear complex baseband equivalent. But as we run out of good ideas to improve current wireless modem technology, the quest for new signal processing has taken us, like ant man, into not the quantum, but the sub lambda world of meta materials. Andrea, our guide to this strange landscape where refraction and reciprocity amongst other basic physical properties, simply refuse to behave themselves, has been a leader in this field for many years now and provides some fascinating insights into what is, and may be, possible for the future of communications. Your comments as always are most welcome.
