Smart LEDs could join the dots of Internet of Things

LEDs can do double duty and illuminate a room whilst joining together the Internet of Things. Experts at Disney Research and ETH Zurich believe that it is possible to create a network of luminaires that can send messages to each other, while having no effect on the level of lighting they emit. Together they worked to design a Visible Light Communications system that is able to connect to appliances and wearable devices. ‘LED light bulbs mounted on the ceiling or in free-standing floor lamps easily cover a room, serving as illumination while at the same time creating a room-area network that allows data exchange between light-emitting devices,’ commented Markus Gross, vice president at Disney Research.
