Multi-Sensory Framework for Holistic Communications

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Ever since humans attained the cognitive capability, his covet of disseminating own knowledge has walked side by side. The quest of having suitable ways to disperse his or her inbound awareness, or information, into others' inner-space lead to several methods, starting from the combination of vocal and hand gestures to full-fledged spoken and orthographic languages. The purpose of any of these methods is the same, which is to create a replication of information from one's cognizance to others' inner domain; the whole process being described by a single word commonly known as 'communications'. Today, the word 'communications' is not just limited to humans and rather has trespassed to machine's domain that we know as machine-to-machine communications (M2M). However, as long ago as we have our historical evidence, there were only three modes of communications we are able to use that are, strictly auditory, strictly visual, and the combination of both, and we are not able to use other modes of human capabilities for communicating information. Besides some exceptional mentioning in our mythologies, one of them being Mahabharata, an ancient Hindu religious epic, in which, use of five primary senses namely, visual (or seeing), auditory (or hearing), olfactory (or smelling), gustatory (or tasting), and tactile (or touching) is explicitly mentioned for describing a subject (object in question) and transferring the holistic information to another person distance apart. It was very recent when an idea of Human Bond Communications (HBC) was put on the floor, which has a similar concept of using all five senses to transmit and recreate holistic information using the sensing and communication techniques.This article presents a technical framework to realize the complex HBC environment so that the idea of a holistic recreation of a subject can be seen as an achievable possibility and long thirst of a shift from mythology to reality is quenchable. From this framework, using the additional three senses other than visual and auditory, we expect to have a system that can have more meaning to the information for its closeness to the reality.
