The emergence of the Internet of the senses may be one of the defining network trends in the future, which will take remote communication to a whole new level. By that time, users will be able to interact not only with humans but also with machines and robots as if they were in their immediate vicinity. However, it is necessary to develop wireless technology that can bridge physical limits.
Swedish company Ericsson As per expectations Within ten years, the Internet of the senses, which will provide unprecedented services based on digital sensory experience, could rearrange our lives. By then, new network technologies may be able to interact with all five human senses on a normal level and stimulate taste, smell and touch. All this will be possible by introducing a new technology whose research has already begun.
AI, VR, AR – Immerse yourself in infinity
The birth of the Internet of the senses is made possible by artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), 6G networks and automation, and it is spreading through immersive entertainment, online shopping or even the climate crisis. It will help reduce environmental impacts. You will not need a touch screen to use the smartphone either, as with the VR glasses, we will just have to think about where we want to go and the plan of the route and the location will appear in front of us in one swipe.
Using different devices, we may be able to create a digital audio bubble around us that eliminates ambient noise or manipulates tastes, and anyone can send and share it in a message through digital channels. We will be able to make a virtual visit anywhere in the open air by absorbing the natural smell of the places or even blowing digital perfumes to make it felt in others in virtual reality.
Touch also plays a big role in new everyday life. A bracelet or bangle can stimulate your nerves by making you feel like you have clearly touched something. In practice, physical reality and digital space are intertwined, the virtual reality game world is fully integrated into everyday life, and 3D holographic displays are spreading for more realistic communication.
It is interesting that services based on the Internet of the senses can also make society more environmentally sustainable, as the development of technology will bring remote work to the fore, health and education services can be provided remotely, and emissions of pollutants will decrease with less frequent travel. In addition, as basic facial recognition systems are improved, the concept of a private sphere may slowly disappear from public consciousness.
knock on 6g
The global pandemic has made the world realize that modern digital infrastructures are of economic and social importance. 5G and Gigabit wired networks have laid the foundation for the convergence of the physical and digital space, but this is just the beginning.” Eric Ekoden, Ericsson’s Chief Technology Officer, said at a presentation to the company’s clients in Hungary and Central Europe.
According to the Swedish expert, 2021 is about the rapid spread of the 5G mobile network: by the end of the year there will be about 660 million 5G subscriptions, and after six years, almost half of the 8.9 billion mobile subscriptions will use existing network technology. However, as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and the technologies that make it easier to create them require a larger, faster, and more complex network,
Experts already anticipate the introduction of a 6th generation wireless network around 2030.
every expectation The evolution brought by 5G, on the 6G network as a better and improved version.
Originally, more powerful virtual and augmented reality systems will be available with 5G soon, but 6G can take it all to the next level and help integrate the internet of the senses into everyday life. And while most development today is still focused on 5G, basic research is already underway on 6G, particularly in China and the United States.
“With the exponential growth in the number of devices connected to the network, there will be a greater demand for functional improvements and enhanced connectivity. This will require further development on the infrastructures currently in use and in the near future, and thus the inclusion of 6G. In addition to communications, the networks of the future will integrate advanced storage and computing capabilities , providing entirely new business models and additional revenue for service providers.” Happy Eric Echoden.
According to the expert, all this can fundamentally change the topology of the network in the future; Some of the functions of the radio and core layer typical of today’s mobile networks may be blurred, making the network design simpler.
