Smart home multi-device bidirectional visible light communication

Smart home multi-device bidirectional visible light communication Driven by increase in automation, smart homes play an important role in today’s human life. This paper presents a new model for smart home technologies based on multi-device bidirectional visible light communication (VLC). For multiple devices and users, orthogonal code-based wavelength division (color beams) full-duplexed bidirectional VLC link is proposed. The color beams from RGB LEDs are utilized to transmit data and synchronize multi-device transmission. To enhance the performance of the proposed model, receiver diversity is also employed.

The maximum achievable data rate for each user up to four users is found to be 24 Mbps at both uplink and downlink transmissions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

Driven by increase in automation, smart homes play an important role in today’s human life. This paper presents a new model for smart home technologies based on multi-device bidirectional visible light communication (VLC). For multiple devices and users, orthogonal code-based wavelength division (color beams) full-duplexed bidirectional VLC link is proposed. The color beams from RGB LEDs are utilized to transmit data and synchronize multi-device transmission. To enhance the performance of the proposed model, receiver diversity is also employed. Performance evaluation reveals that the proposed VLC-based model for smart homes is efficient with superior BER performance in a typical smart home environment except for the far corners. The maximum achievable data rate for each user up to four users is found to be 24 Mbps at both uplink and downlink transmissions.
