VLC for Industry 4.0

In this project our team at IDeTIC's Division of Photonic Technology and Communications develops the first spanish prototype of an industrial robotic control system using LiFi technology. This system uses two different communication links: a conventional Lifi downlink to deliver instructions and commands to the robot, and a novel Optical Camera Communication uplink that replaces traditional photoreceptors for camera sensors. This project aims to demonstrate the viability of Lifi within an industrial scenario, where industrial lightning and surveillance systems could serve as functional communication systems.
