Abstract


Currently, the research community has shown very strong interest towards visible light communication. This work explores VLC communication through a prototype implementation. In this work the visible light is being used and IR sensors. The IR sensor have been in practice for receiving of data which is send from the keypad and is further displayed on the receiver side with the LCD. The IR sensor is interfaced at the receiving end. The data is sensed by the receiver side through the blinking of the LED at the transmitter end. The IR sensor receives the data at the same baud rate and displays it on LCD which is interfaced with the Arduino at the receiver end.  We were able to transmit small data through VLC. In future, we are planning to transmit live stream and large video files through it.
