VLC MAINAU

Conferenceroom System for the Island of Mainau

Sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg

Duration: May 2015 - May 2017

The VLC Mainau project was launched in 2015 with the objective to use VLC technology in an existing conference room on the Island of Mainau. The conference room system was upgraded in several phases intended to offer insights for parameter optimization in view of practical applications. This VLC installation outside a laboratory environment was the first in Germany and one of the few field tests of this kind worldwide.

The project was supported by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Environment, Climate and Energy. The Initiative BodenseeMobilfunk came up with the idea for the project on Mainau Island and coordinated the activities of the project participants.
