Exploring Light Based Communication for Next Generation Vehicular, Indoor and Underwater Networks
Light based communication systems is a new communication paradigm which has been proposed recently to meet the capacity and safety requirements for next generation communication networks. In this talk, I will discuss the application of this paradigm in vehicular, indoor as well as underwater wireless scenarios. Specifically I will deliberate the pros and cons of applying light based communication architecture for V2X communication vis-à-vis conventional RF based DSRC framework. I will also share some of the preliminary analytical, simulation and measurement results obtained by our research group in this direction.
Vivek Ashok Bohara (S’08–M’13–SM’19) received the Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2011. From 2011 to 2013, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher (Marie Curie fellowship) in ESIEE Paris, University Paris-East. In 2013, he joined IIIT-Delhi, India, where he is currently an Associate Professor and Head, Department of Electronics and Communication. He is also a founding faculty member of Centre of excellence in Li-Fi as well as Wirocomm Research Group in IIIT-Delhi. He has authored and co-authored over 50 publications in major IEEE/IET journals and refereed international conferences, two book chapters, and two patents. His research interests are towards Visible Light Communication (VLC), hybrid RF-VLC communication, integration of optical communication with intelligent reflective surfaces (IRS) , UAV and vehicular communication.. Prof. Bohara received First Prize in National Instruments ASEAN Virtual Instrumentation Applications Contest in 2007 and 2010. He was also the recipient of the Best Poster Award at the IEEE ANTS 2014 and the IEEE Comsnets 2015 and 2016 conferences.
