Digitimes Research: LED communication is promising

Jessie Lin, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei 0

Communication technology using LED diodes and image sensors offers many potential applications, such those for enhancing shopping, entertainment purposes and tourism, according to Digitimes Research.

Such applications would only need support of inexpensive devices.

Image sensor communication technology works when LED lighting with embedded ID signals is projected onto a target object and smartphone cameras are used to scan the object to receive the ID signals from the reflected light. The smartphones can then display the information based on installed application software, Digitimes Research indicated.

Image sensor communication technology is currently used in mostly indoor applications, but has great potential for outdoor ones in the future.
