Enhance Lighting for the Internet of Things

Project description

Here comes LiFi for the Internet of Things

The data rate, reliability and latency of wireless connections will be stressed by increasing the number of devices communicating at higher speed in the Internet of Things (IoT). If many IoT devices communicate in a confined space, the demand for wireless spectrum will increase faster than expected for current internet services. The EU-funded ELIOT project, a 10-partner, 36-month project led by the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, will develop mass market solutions for the IoT using LiFi, a next generation wireless communication network, travelling over light instead of radio waves. With LiFi, the ELIOT consortium develops a new networked mobile communication technology operating in the previously unused light spectrum, into which IoT traffic can be offloaded from Wi-Fi and cellular radio.
