Abstract

In this paper, we study the novel idea of fiber optic lighting - optical camera communications. We carry out analyses of the proposed scheme employing a light emitting diode (LED) illuminated plastic optical fiber (POF) and a rolling-shutter-based camera as the transmitter and the receiver (Rx), respectively in an indoor static environment. We also provide optical and electrical characterization of the LED and LED coupled POF illumination sources. The experiment results demonstrate that, despite the small diameter of the illuminating POF, flicker-free wireless communications at modulation frequencies of 300 and 600 Hz over the transmission distances of 50 and 75 cm can be achieved. Consequently, we show that a 100 % reception success rate is achieved for the camera-based optical Rx with the exposure time and the gain of 400 µs and 25 dB, respectively.
