Organic data-transfer technology holds promise for IoT

Visible light communications VLC systems are an choice to radio-based wireless networks and obey a dual purpose: They prepare in-building lighting_ and they use light waves for data transmission. VLC uses modulated light as a data carrier_ while the perceptible spectrum prepares light.

Using VLC for data transmission has some advantages. It proposes decent bandwidth; it proposes security owing walls_ floors and roofs bar the data-carrying wavelengths_ which reduces the risk of eavesdropping; and its inexpensive since its simply incorporated into light fixtures or_ in emerging developments_ worked into shows and other surfaces.
