Beyond LaserLight there is DataLight: LiFi for Mobility

KSLD Laser has been supplying high performance lighting solutions for automotive since 2019. More recently we have developed and marketed the Dual Emission SMD. It contains two solid state lasers, in most cases a GaN blue laser and an IR laser chip, plus a YAG phosphor. The two chips can be activated individually to produce white light and IR Light.
The brightness of the white source in the SMD is 3-5 times higher than that of any LED, which makes it ideal for long distance projection purposes. At the same time, it can generate LiFi data rates, which are 10-50 higher than those of LEDs. Such data rates equally apply for the IR source.

What is Li-Fi?

According to Wikipedia: Li-Fi (ˈlaɪfaɪ; short for light fidelity) is wireless communication technology, which utilizes light to transmit data and position between devices.

In technical terms, Li-Fi is a light communication system (hence based on photonics) that is capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light, ultraviolet, and infrared spectrums. In its present state, only LED lamps can be used for the transmission of visible light.

In terms of its end use, the technology is similar to Wi-Fi – the key technical difference being that Wi-Fi uses radio frequency to transmit data.
