Abstract

Embedded visible light communication (VLC) systems built with low-cost commodity hardware are starting to at- tract the interest of the embedded systems community, but are yet unexplored in many aspects. The performance of VLC channels is not comprehensively studied under differ- ent communication settings and scenarios. In this paper we present an experimental characterization of the performance of low-end VLC channels and investigate the impact of var- ious transmitter/receiver settings, protocol-level parameters and deployment aspects using both low-power and high- power LEDs. Our goal is to discover the strengths, weak- nesses and limitations of embedded VLC systems.
