Visible Light Communications Framework for Intelligent Transportation Systems

In this work, we plan to develop a visible light communication framework that can be used for intelligent transportation system. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) has been motivated by the need for reducing traffic congestion and offering better user experience in navigation and location-specific services. Recently, visible light communication (VLC) has drawn a lot of attention. ITS is one of its most important applications. Traffic lights have been used to control traffic flow and located at a particular place and rarely moved are competent to indicate and to supply the information about the surrounding.  In this project, our aim is to develop a framework that can support vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-cyclist (V2C) communication using VLC.
