Optical Camera Communication, a wireless communication between LED Light and camera of the phone (image sensor) for usage of b2b2c

OCC technology that stands for Optical Camera Communication is a one-way communication flow between an LED lamp and a smartphone.
This allows for glocalization with ultra-precision limited strictly and securely to the beam of the LED. It detects the presence of a user under a specific light at a live timeframe.

Towards Terabit per Second Wireless Networking with Light

We will show recent research results of the project Terabit Optical Wireless System (TOWS) which aims at building LiFi networks capable of aggregate data rates greater than 1 Tbps. One of the main limitations to unlock the full capacity of the optical spectrum are the electrical-to-optical (E/O) and optical-to-electrical (O/E) conversion efficiencies of current opto-electronic devices.

Optical wireless communications technologies for the internet of things

by Dominic O’Brien, Professor of Engineering Science, Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford

The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a wide range of implementation challenges, including ensuring security, lowering energy consumption, and providing reliable communications. Optical Wireless Communications (OWC) and LiFi can assist in achieving this, and provide secure contained communications channels, energy that can be harvested by IoT nodes, and critically; new regions of the electromagnetic spectrum to alleviate the demands on the congested RF spectrum.
