Example of applications

Waypoint navigation


OPSskin can be used for an easy and reliable way of navigation. Vibrations can be given in the direction of the next waypoint. Distance can be distinguished by the number of vibrations.

The shirt can give a clear signal when the waypoint is reached and can automatically move on to the next.

The navigation application can also be used for guidance to a rendez-vous point or to patrol an area. If a group is separated, the individual can be directed to the established rendez-vous point.



With the covert communication application, group communication is possible by sharing pre-defined tactile patterns. Short signals can be sent discreetly without being seen or heard.

Thus communication remains possible even in conditions with low visibility when emission of light or sound is undesired.
