BMW Hopes for Smaller Li-Fi Gear on Factory Floor

It has become clearer why BMW used infrared light rather than visible: Infrared is faster, according to the group that led the project. Li-Fi can use the visible light emitted by LED luminaires, or, as at the Munich BMW plant, it can use infrared light, an invisible portion of the light spectrum. BMW had been testing Li-Fi to transmit information to and from a single factory floor robot used to inspect automobile bodies, in a small trial led by Berlin’s Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute. https://www.ledsmagazine.com/
