Smoke detection by a network of sensors installed in the forest
Open VLC device
One-shot Fee: 150 €
Off-the-shelf prototype using the visible light spectrum
The software-defined approach of the platform allows easily reconfiguring the system according to the application needs. The platform runs on a cost-effective yet powerful credit-card-sized embedded board.
It can be used as a starter kit for embedded VLC research, as well as an education kit for courses aimed at undergraduate students.
OpenVLC is composed of three parts:
- An embedded system BeagleBone Black (BBB).
- The OpenVLC1.1 hardware, i.e., the VLC transceiver (also called BBB cape).
- The OpenVLC1.1 software, a software-defined PHY and MAC layer, implemented as a Linux driver.

The device of IMDEA is a very good tool for testing the applications which I am currently developping in domotics.
