Photonics Applications Week 2019 is an umbrella event focused on real-life applications of photonics.
The Internet of Things and Li-Fi Event
(09:30 – 17:00) is about how Li−Fi enables IoT in providing networked mobile communication using the light. Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) is very well positioned to provide high speed, latency-free communication for these applications. By networking multiple OWC-enabled access points, one can build a new mobile communication system integrated with lighting. At the moment, first generations of of Li-Fi system, based on visible or InfraRed LEDs are rolled out, based on the new ITU standard, but the potential for OWC goes much further.
