    Advances in solid-state lighting (SSL) are enabling LEDs to be the dominant source for future human-made light. The adoption of LEDs is expected to significantly reduce energy consumption and facilitate precise intensity and color control of illuminated spaces. SSL also makes possible the use of visible light communications (VLC), in which data are emitted from luminaires through subtle intensity ... View full abstract»

    VLC technology is receiving increasing attention in research and product development these days because high lumen/watt LEDs are becoming the dominant sources for artificial lighting. Successful VLC data transmission from luminaires requires that the data first be moved to the luminaires over a backbone network. This article addresses the lighting control network as a backbone for VLC services and... View full abstract»

    It is believed that vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications and accurate positioning with sub-meter error could bring vehicle safety to a different level. However, to this date it is still unclear whether the envisioned V2V standard, dedicated short-range communications, can become available in commercially available vehicle products, while widely available consumergrade GPS receivers do not provi...

    This article presents recent achievements and trends in high-speed indoor visible light communication (VLC) research. We address potential applications and future visions for the VLC technology, where transport of information is “piggybacked” on the original lighting function of LED-based lamps. To mature this technology and transfer it into practice, our recent research is focused o... View full abstract»

    The widespread introduction of white LEDs for illumination provides a unique opportunity to create an indoor positioning system that is flexible, accurate, and ubiquitous. Signals transmitted by the LEDs are used to determine the position of a person or object within a room. To take full advantage of this new opportunity, it is essential that comprehensive and robust international standards are de... View full abstract»

    Carrier aggregation is a key feature of 3GPP LTE that addresses the support of higher data rates and utilization of fragmented spectrum holdings. In this article, the relevant design challenges of terminals are discussed. The transmitter architectures are reviewed, and the minimum amount of power amplifier back-offs is evaluated. In addition, several receiver architectures are compared from the pe... View full abstract»

    Small cell techniques are recognized as the best way to deliver high capacity for broadband cellular communications. Femtocell and distributed antenna systems (DASs) are important components in the overall small cell story, but are not the complete solution. They have major disadvantages of very limited cooperation capability and expensive deployment cost, respectively. In this article, we propose... View full abstract»
