Visible Light Communications, written by leading researchers, provides a comprehensive overview of theory, stimulation, design, implementation, and applications. The book is divided into two parts – the first devoted to the underlying theoretical concepts of the VLC and the second part covers VLC applications. Visible Light Communications is an emerging topic with multiple functionalities including data communication, indoor localization, 5G wireless communication networks, security, and small cell optimization. This concise book will be of valuable interest from beginners to researchers in the field.
Part I: Theory. Introduction. Illumination Perspective. Optoelectronics and OLED Devices. Channel Modeling. Modulation Schemes. Techniques for Enhancing VLC Systems. Networks and Protocols. IEEE 802.15.7: Visible Light Communication Standard. Part II: Applications. v Optical Small Cells, RF/VLC Heterogeneous Networks, and Software Defined Visible Light Communication. VLC Applications for Visually Impaired People. VLC for Indoor Positioning – An Industrial View on Applications. Car-to-Car Communications. Visible Light Communications Based on Street Lightings. Transdermal Optical Communications. Underwater Visible-Light Communications, Channel Modeling and System Design. OFDM-Based VLC Systems Prototyping.
"The fundamental and practical considerations of VLC systems with the used components and technologies in different application scenarios are a strong fact to publish and to buy this book. It is an ideal book for researchers working on VLC-related research projects, to deepen their knowledge of the field and to go into practical considerations. It is also an excellent textbook for graduate courses on the topic."

"This is possibly the first book which gives a comprehensive idea of the developments in the field of visible light communications. I especially like the approach of keeping the basics of VLC in the first five chapters, which is very useful for the beginners and research graduates in the field. The application scenarios are carefully chosen to be very contemporary. Topics like software defined VLC add an advanced dimension for the mature researchers in the field. This makes the book useful for all classes of researchers from novice to experienced."

"To date, this book seems to be the most comprehensive book in VLC area. The authors have considered all existent and possible applications, scenarios, models, etc. to introduce VLC. Further, they studied modern concepts and technologies (usually borrowed from RF wireless) including MIMO, ITS, etc. in the same context. In addition, it covers the most recent researches in this area."
