Enabling Vehicular Visible Light Communication (V2LC) Networks
Visible Light Communication (VLC) is a fast-growing technology to provide data communication using low-cost and omni-present LEDs and photodiodes. Visible Light Communication (VLC) employs lighting sources as transmitters and utilizes photodiodes as receivers. This communication paradigm has drawn interest from both research and industrial communities, e.g., the Visible Light Communications Consortium, the IEEE task group, 802.15.7, standardizing VLC for personal area network etc. The broad interest originates from the advantages VLC brings to data rate (up to 500 Mbps thus far ) and energy efficiency due to LEDs.
