The classification of OCC technologies has been given. Being a part of non-flicker modulation series, with the vast usage of rolling shutter cameras in the camera market, the use of rolling shutter cameras in OCC systems takes advantage of the high sampling rate of the rolling shutter mechanism, which sequentially exposes pixel lines to the … Continue reading Rolling shutter OCC: Communication distance vs Data rate Trade-off

Reed Solomon and Convolutional Code are chosen for IEEE 802.15.7-2011 and IEEE 802.15.7m implementation. In this post, we will review the generation of the codes and simulate their performance for comparison. Reed Solomon Systematic RS codes are used for FEC (typically outer FEC) with GF(16), generated by the polynomial x4+x+1. The generators for the RS(n, … Continue reading FEC: Generation of Reed-Solomon and Convolutional Code
Hi there! Two weeks busy in writing an SCI paper is over, and I am back beginning with a list of notations and acronyms that I usually use in OCC systems from now on. ACO-OFDM Asymmetrically Clipped OFDM Ab … Continue reading Abbreviation in OCC Systems
In the context of a safety assistance communication-based solution, OWC is a strong candidate for delivering the V2V communication power to cars. It is realized that the LED lighting is quipped to car mandatorily, meanwhile, a camera is considered as one of the indispensable sensors for car vision. The existence of supportive infrastructure enables the … Continue reading What is Optical Region-of-Interest Signaling?
