KIIT School of Electronics Engineering Organizes Guest Talk on Visible Light Communication


School of Electronics Engineering, KIIT Deemed to be University organized a webinar on “Visible Light Communication for 6G: Possible Applications Scenarios in Vehicular, Indoor and Underwater Communication” on 14th December 2021. The state-of-the-art technology of Visible Light Communication (VLC) and its application was presented at the webinar. The VLC is a data communications technology which uses visible light between 400 and 800 THz (780–375 nm). This is a wireless method that uses light emitted by LEDs to deliver networked, mobile, high-speed communication similar to Wi-Fi, leading to the term Li-Fi.  

Speaking at the webinar, the resource person Prof. Vivek Ashok Bohara, Associate Professor (ECE), IIIT Delhi emphasized the potential applications of VLC technology in the area of vehicle to vehicle communication, robots in hospitals, underwater communication, Li-Fi, and information displayed on sign boards. He also talked about possible collaboration for research in the said areas. Overall, the session was motivated by the knowledge and opportunities shared by the resource person in the recent research on VLC.

The webinar was attended by Prof. Amlan Datta, Prof. S. S. Singh and other faculty members of Communication Lab. It was coordinated by Prof. Swati Swayamsiddha and arranged by Prof. S. K. Sabat, School of Electronics Engineering. Around 40 participants comprising Master’s students, Research scholars, and Faculty members attended the session.
