Hybrid Visible Light Communication for Intelligent Transportation Systems: Challenges and Opportunities.

Professor Ling Cheng from the School of Electrical and Information Engineering Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment will deliver his inaugural lecture titled, Hybrid Visible Light Communication for Intelligent Transportation Systems: Challenges and Opportunities.

Reliable and affordable data communication is a key to intelligent transportation systems (ITS). A hybrid power line communication (PLC) and outdoor visible light communication (VLC) system is proposed and the challenges in in-vehicle PLC and outdoor VLC are illustrated. Our recent studies were focused on new techniques and strategies to integrate heterogeneous PLC with VLC so as to improve the reliability and scalability of these data communication techniques in an ITS practice i.e. (a) based on the existing PLC and VLC standards provide a more reliable coding and modulation scheme in the physical layer of a hybrid system; (b) evolve the outdoor visible light communication techniques, which are still in their early stages of development in practice, especially on channel modelling; (c) adapt the existing techniques and propose new techniques up-to-date according to the requirements of data transmission in ITS.

The lecture will take place online via Zoom.
