Title (EN) COMBINING BODY-COUPLED COMMUNICATION AND RADIO FREQUENCY COMMUNICATION
(FR) COMBINAISON D'UNE COMMUNICATION COUPLÉE À UN CORPS ET D'UNE COMMUNICATION PAR RADIOFRÉQUENCES
Abstract:
(EN) In summary, the present invention relates to a device, a method, a system and a computer program enabling to ensure a reliable communication even under difficult radio frequency conditions. In case data cannot be successfully communicated by a radio frequency communication, the data may be transmitted to another device by a body-coupled communication via a human or animal body. The other device can act as a relay and forward the data to an intended destination. Thus, data may be successfully transmitted to the intended destination even under difficult radio frequency conditions due to body shadowing or other effects.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif, un procédé, un système et un programme informatique permettant de garantir une communication fiable même dans des conditions de radiofréquences difficiles. Dans le cas où les données ne peuvent pas être transmises par communication radio, les données peuvent être transmises à un autre dispositif par communication couplée à un corps via un corps humain ou animal. L'autre dispositif peut servir de relais et envoyer les données vers une destination voulue. Ainsi, les données peuvent être transmises avec succès vers la destination voulue même dans des conditions de radiofréquences dues à un ombrage (body shadowing) ou autres effets.
