  • Ultrasonic Communication System Design Using Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer

    Ultrasonic communication is a technique of transmitting a message through solids such as steel plates or pipes. Electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMATs) are non-contact sensors able to generate and receive ultrasonic waves. In this study, periodic-permanent-magnet (PPM) EMATs are used to produce shear-horizontal (SH) waves. We present experimental results to show channel characterization of SH waves carrying information over the frequency range of 200 kHz to 800 kHz. An experimental ultrasonic communication platform was built for assessing the SH wave propagation through stainless steel plate channels. An arbitrary function generator (AFG) and a power amplifier with 50 dB gain excite PPM-EMAT resulting different SH modes. The transmitted ultrasonic signal is detected by the SH-wave EMAT receiver. The received signal is conditioned, amplified and sampled by a digital oscilloscope. The AFG and the digital oscilloscope can be configured by the computer. In addition, the receiver is connected to an impedance matching network for signal conditioning which minimizes the signal interference and reflections. A random binary message is modulated with amplitude shift keying (ASK) also known as on-off keying (OOK), and the received message is processed to recover the binary code to examine bit error rate (BER). The proposed method can transmit digital data through a 165 cm distance in the presence of undesirable multipath effect with the bit rates of 2.5 kbps under 0.48% BER.

  • Implementation of ultrasonic communication for wireless body area network using amplitude shift keying modulation

    Radio Frequency (RF) communication is always considered as the main choice to transmit data from wireless body area network devices. However, wireless communication using RF has radiation that can pierce through skin and have negative effect for body. An ultrasonic communication can be used as an alternative to transmit the data. In this paper, we have developed an ultrasonic communication system using amplitude shift keying (ASK) modulation. The data are taken from galvanic skin response sensor and processed by a microcontroller. The processed data then modulated using ASK modulation technique before transmitted using ultrasonic transducers. The results showed that the ultrasonic transducers are able to transmit data in relatively short range and narrow beamwidth. The ASK modulation technique performed well for modulating and demodulating the signal taken from GSR sensor.

  • Mitigation of multipath in steel wall channel of ultrasonic communication system

    In this paper, we analyze performance of reflected signal mitigation method for ultrasonic communication system through a steel wall channel. Pre- distortion scheme using echo cancellation pulse can be one of the solutions against the echo problem without a burden of receiver complexity. However, there are some possible exceptions which make performance of echo reduction effect worse. In this paper, therefore, we're concerned about ununiformed path lengths of each reflection and amplitude measurement error of 1st echo. Narrow pulse test is performed for characterization of the channel and evaluation of echo cancellation method in MATLAB simulation. Simulation results show that the effect of echo cancellation can be degraded if channel model approximation is not correct. But, although this problem can be happened, the system performance of mitigation of echoes is outstandingly successful since reflections after echo cancellation are tiny compared with LOS received signal.

  • High-bandwidth ultrasonic communication using graphene-based acoustic devices

    Radio-Frequency (RF) communications are increasingly subject to high interferences caused by ubiquitous wireless devices. Ultrasonic communication can serve as an alternative wireless communication mechanism to compliment RF communications. However, traditional ultrasonic transducers have extremely narrow bandwidth that prevents them from being deployed in real-world applications. In this demo, we demonstrate the implementation of an ultrasonic communication system using graphene-based electrostatic acoustic transducers. Our experimental results show that the prototype system works on 100 kHz ultrasonic carrier, and can achieve data rate up to 20 kbit/s with bit error rate lower than 10-5at a transmission distance of 25 cm and transmission power of 2 mW, significantly faster than the state-of-the-art ultrasonic communication approaches1.

  • Ultrasonic communication in wireless sensor networks

    RF and acoustic communications are widely used in terrestrial wireless sensor networks and underwater environments, respectively. In this paper, we explore the use of ultrasonic communication in terrestrial wireless sensor networks. We aim to investigate the ultrasonic channel in order to observe whether reliable communication is possible among the nodes of an ultrasonic wireless sensor network as an alternative to an RF-based network. Since ultrasound has not been popularly utilized for communication purposes so far, we inspect in this paper some characteristics of the ultrasonic channel with an experimental setup utilizing ultrasonic transmitters and receivers.

  • Design and Characterization of an MFSK-Based Transmitter/Receiver for Ultrasonic Communication Through Metallic Structures

    Some applications require wireless transmission of information to and from devices located inside metal enclosures, e.g., a closed shipping container in transit. However, traditional radio frequency (RF) communication schemes are not capable of transmitting signals through metal enclosures. As an alternative to RF, an ultrasonic communication system based on multitone frequency-shift keying (MFSK) has been developed and evaluated using the steel corner posts of shipping containers as the communication medium. Empirical studies have been performed on the steel channel. The communication system is configurable and consists of two or more modules. The modules are mounted to the metal posts and utilize an inexpensive ultrasonic transducer to send and receive modulated signals through the metal channel. A module also makes use of an inexpensive digital-signal-processing chip for modulating and demodulating MFSK signals. Two case studies for the shipping container application were evaluated: 1) communicating through one container and 2) communicating between stacked containers. Regarding the second case study, a key discovery was that each of the aggregate steel columns formed by a stack of shipping containers can serve as an ultrasonic communication channel that spans all containers in the stack.

  • Application of low-frequency ultrasonic communication to audio marker for augmented reality

    In augmented reality (AR), image markers are widely used for rendering virtual objects. However, the performance for image markers strongly depends on the lighting environment and the distance between the image marker and a camera. Therefore, we propose an audio marker-based AR application using low frequency ultrasound (LFU) communication. The proposed method consisted of forward error correction (FEC) coding and windowed differential phase shift keying (DPSK) modulation in order to make the proposed method robust over the noisy channel. The successful transmission rate (STR) performance of the proposed system was measured according to the various distances and azimuths under noisy conditions. As a result, the proposed audio marker transceiver could operate up to around 4 m without transmission error, even at ambient noise of 70 dB.

  • Point-to-Multipoint Ultrasonic Communication Modem for Ubiquitous Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks

    Recently, researches on underwater sensor networks (USN) for ocean development and disaster prevention have been emerged as one of interesting topics. Since low-power, high-speed and inexpensive communication modem is a prerequisite for deployment of USN, we design and implement an underwater modem by utilizing general-purpose waterproof ultrasonic sensors in this paper. Also, we make an experiment in a water tank containing sensor nodes and a sink node, a gateway, and show that point-to-multipoint communication is possible at a data rate of 1 kbps.

  • Applying EMAT for Ultrasonic Communication Through Steel Plates and Pipes

    Ultrasonic communication methods have been used for sending data through elastic solids such as steel pipes or plates to overcome physical hurdles that hamper the conventional communication methods (wired and RF wireless). EMAT (Electro Magnetic Acoustic Transducer), an ultrasonic signal generation technique that generates different modes of waveform, is particularly useful for hot, cold, or dry environments, which overcome many of the issues faced by conventional PZT ultrasonic probes. In this paper, EMAT is used as the transmitter for noncontact ultrasonic signal generation and PZT is used as the receiver for the communication system. This system is designed to assess the efficiency of Lamb waves and to examine Bit Error Rate (BER) of digital communication. The communication system was configured using National Instrument arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) and PXI digital oscilloscope. The accuracy of transmitted information is tested on a 5-foot long stainless- steel plate and pipe. The system operates with the frequency of 414 kHz signal and uses Amplitude-Shift Keying (ASK) modulation for transmission. This method can transfer digital data in presence of undesirable multipath effect with bit rates of 20 kbps and 40 kbps without any error.

  • Energy Efficient Ultrasonic Communication on Steel Pipes

    Ultrasonic transducers can be used to transmit acoustic signals through metallic guides such as buried or submerged pipes or through pipes used in building infrastructure. In particular, our research focuses on low-rate communication under energy constrained situations, and targets maximizing energy efficiency, i.e., bits per Joule. A cross-layer approach to energy efficient design, accounting for both transmit power and signal processing power is suggested. Finally, bits-per-Joule capacity of this channel, based on experimentally measured channel responses, are determined numerically, and an optimized multi-tone frequency shift keying (MFSK) scheme is suggested at the end of this paper.
