Data communication with light
Fraunhofer HHI provides VLC technology for a conference room on Mainau Island
Sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg
The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI is providing the necessary Visible Light Communication (VLC) technology in order to implement an optical WiFi environment in a conference room on Mainau Island (Lake Constance). This will replace the existing radio-based WiFi solution. The upgrade is planned to take place in several stages and provide insights for practice-oriented optimization of system parameters.
The project is sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg. The Initiative BodenseeMobilfunk is committed to reducing radio emissions and provided the idea for the project on Mainau Island.
