Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop describes the change from the current Internet, which focuses on the democratization of information independent of location or time, to the Tactile Internet, which democratizes skills to promote equity that is independent of age, gender, sociocultural background or physical limitations. The book promotes the concept of the Tactile Internet for remote closed-loop human-machine interaction and describes the main challenges and key technologies. Current standardization activities in the field for IEEE and IETF are also described, making this book an ideal resource for researchers, graduate students, and industry R&D engineers in communications engineering, electronic engineering, and computer engineering.
