Optical Wireless Communication
There are many significant optical improvements available to the optical wireless communication industry from other fields of application. Our current Innovate UK project in this field has just demonstrated that we can combine these advances to deliver a range of advantages in addition to avoiding radio frequency congestion. These include reduced weight and size, more relaxed alignment, greater security, higher bandwidth and lower cost of equipment and installation as low power requirements enable self-harvesting.
We are working with partners in various sectors, such as rail, space, military, last mile broadband, internet of things and smart cities to exploit the specific improvements of most value to them.
