Light emitting diodes are low-cost and energy- efficient. They are replacing incandescent bulbs as the primary source of illumination in residential and public environments. The brightness of LEDs can be modulated at a high rate, which enables the combination of illumination and wireless communication, imperceptible to humans. Such systems using LEDs as transceivers are called visible light communication systems. LEDs have also been extensively used in consumer electronics such as toys and… CONTINUE READING
