Tactile Internet to Share VR users’ Experiences

Abstract : We propose the concept of "Tactile Internet"(Tac-I) that will be the next evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). It enables sharing experiences of others with the sense of touch. In our case, Tac-I allows to multicast vibrotactile sensations from one node to multiple nodes via Internet. We developed vibrotactile shared devices which are physical bracelets connected between them through Cloud platform. We use the WebRTC as communication protocol to exchange data between tactile bracelets. Users can access Tac-I Web using a smartphone or Tablet and experience the vibrotactile sensation by manipulating virtual objects in a virtual reality environment from a Web browser. Multiple vibrotactile bracelets would be connected to the Cloud and transmit the tactile information from one node to another one or to multiple ones.
