On September 30, 2019, Internet of Things and Li-Fi Event will take place at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands, during the Photonics Applications Week (Phapps Week).  The Internet of Things (IoT) drives a rapid growth of the amount of data communication as tens of billions of devices will communicate. Today’s IoT is predominantly narrowband. Yet, we also foresee increasing demands for communication at high quality of service, such as guaranteed high bit rates at low latency. A wide range of future IoT applications, i.e. flexible manufacturing, augmented reality and autonomous cars require the exchange of sensor and video data, processed in the cloud, while doing real-time remote control of autonomous devices.

Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) is very well positioned to provide high speed, latency-free communication for these applications. By networking multiple OWC-enabled access points, one can build a new mobile communication system integrated with lighting. At the moment, first generations of of Li-Fi system, based on visible or InfraRed LEDs are rolled out, based on the new ITU  standard, but the potential for OWC goes much further.

The event will focus on the following topics:

  • Li-Fi Taking off in the market
  • Li-Fi for IoT
  • Li-Fi for Industry 4.0
  • Li-Fi and 5G
  • Li-Fi standardization
  • ICs for Li-Fi
