Visible Light Communication Networks Based on Linux-Enabled Light Bulbs - Stefan Schmid, Disney Research

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Light bulbs based on Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) provide a foundation for networking using visible light as a communication medium. With Visible Light Communication (VLC), LED light bulbs installed in a room can communicate with each other and other VLC-enabled devices like smartphones, wearables and toys. This talk focuses on how to bring the Linux network stack together with a microcontroller-based VLC platform and integrate it into LED light bulbs. Enabling IP-based networking makes it possible to reuse the many available protocols and applications in order to interconnect smart devices without using the already congested radio spectrum.

Stefan Schmid

PhD Student, Disney Research & ETH Zurich
Stefan Schmid is a PhD student at Disney Research and ETH Zurich. He has been working on software-defined Visible Light Communication (VLC) for the past 4 years. His research focuses on low-cost and microcontroller-based VLC networks including LED-to-LED networks and networked light bulbs. Recent work proposes the integration of VLC-enabled light bulbs with the Linux network stack to enable IP-based communication. Before starting with his PhD... Read More →
