LED lighting has many advantages over conventional lighting, not only in terms of energy efficiency, lifetime, fine grain controllability of the light but also because the light output of LEDs can be modulated at high speed. Hence, light from LEDs can carry and exchange information. Signify successfully applies this in solutions for indoor positioning, location-based services and personal control of the light settings in offices. LiFi is a further promising communication technique in which data is being transmitted via the light that illumination LEDs emit.
