Security Since visible light cannot surpass walls, the information is kept within the interior space. Reduced cost of ownership VLC can reduce wiring and the cost associated with expensive IT infrastructures. Health Eliminates excessive and potentially harmful microwave radiation from WiFi areas. Speed Gbit/s communications have been demonstrated.
Information needs a channel to be transmitted from one point to another. Our I+D team is working on equipping our light engines with Visible-Light Communications. Visible-Light Communications (VLC) use photons in the visible range as a means of transmitting digital information. Thus, in interior spaces, visible light could be used as a carrier of information [...]
