This activity will be focused on the detailed description of all the components that are part of the VLC/ IR-RF communication system, including development boards, sensors, LEDs and photodiodes.
Activity III.1 – Context analysis for sensors involved in the architecture of the communication system
In this subchapter, there will be provided a brief description of the VLC/ IR-RF hybrid communication architecture, whose primary purpose was detailed in the previous stage of the project, along with a complete set of sensors that were implemented within the laboratory test bench,
Activity III.2 – Development of the communication solution for low power devices
Within this activity, the attention will be focused on the technical presentation of the current test bench along with the results that were observed during the experiments. Moreover, to achieve the proposed goal and to obtain the most accurate results, professional measurement tools were chosen to analyze the performance of the VLC / IR-RF hybrid communication system. In this case, the information coming from the sensing modules was carried via the VLC communication protocols.
Activity III.3 – Methods for data processing
This activity will be focused on how to export the data coming from the VLC components that were presented in the previous activity. Therefore, three popular scenarios will be analyzed as follows:
-MQTT Client – Grafana – Arduino;
-LabVIEW Client – Arduino;
-Arduino Client – Firebase – Android.
