The Future is LiFi: Connectivity through light
LiFi is a disruptive technology that delivers high speed, bidirectional and networked wireless communications, similar to WiFi, except using light waves rather than radio frequencies to transmit data.
The full potential of a LiFi network is still being discovered but LiFi can exchange data incredibly rapidly and securely at a much lower power level compared to WiFi. LiFi uses LED light bulbs to enable data transfer, boasting speeds of up to 224 gigabits per second, up to 100 times faster than WiFi.
Geoff Timbs from Philips Lighting will present a session on LiFi at OUTLOOK 2019. Geoff’s session will show how the Philips Indoor positioning system works with LED luminaires that are embedded with visible light communication (VLC) technology.
The system uses light to send a unique code to a mobile device, accurately pinpointing the user’s specific location on a map of the car park. The user’s device is then location-aware and the app can deliver location-based services that guide the user back to their car space or to the nearest shop entry or exit.
Don’t miss the chance to find out about the valuable insights that visible light communication (VLC) technology can provide for car park managers/owners, including information about space use, dwell time and shopper/user journeys.
