Passive communication with ambient light research is runner-up to Best Paper Award at ACM CoNEXT 2016

27 December 2016 -- victor_ramirez

Visible Light Communication, also known as VLC or “Li-Fi”, is one of the hottest trends in communications research. In simple terms, the concept refers to an illumination source (e.g. a LED) which in addition to illumination can send information using the same light signal. The Pervasive Wireless Networks Group of IMDEA Networks led by Dr. Domenico Giustiniano have been performing pioneer work on this topic over the last 3 years. The group has designed and built the open-source OpenVLC platform to promote collaborative international research on this area, receiving particular attention from the researchers and designers of 5G networks and beyond.
