Dartmouth researchers test first 'smart spaces' using light to send data
One of the problems in the high-tech field of visible light communication -- or using light to send data wirelessly -- is decidedly low tech: The data transmission stops whenever the light is blocked by people's movements, shadows or other obstacles. But Dartmouth researchers are experimenting with the first 'smart spaces' that feature an interplay of algorithms, ceiling-mounted LEDs and light sensors embedded in floors and in smart devices, enabling a continuous flow of data wirelessly.
