Fraunhofer IPMS to Showcase Li-Fi at embedded world

February 25, 2019 Laura Dolan

Fraunhofer IPMS will be presenting Li-Fi (light fidelity) glasses at embedded world from February 26-28 in Nuremberg, Germany in Hall 3, Booth 123.  

Li-Fi can support augmented reality applications by providing the user with information that is integrated into the augmented reality glasses’ field of view.

These glasses can be used in the following scenarios:

  • warehousing and logistics areas
  • assembly and product development  
  • medical  

The devices are especially essential when large amounts of data and interactive content transferring are required and while a user's actions must be available during a certain period of time.

“Data glasses are a great example of the benefits of our Li-Fi technology. Optical wireless transmission offers high constant data rates, low latency, and maximum user mobility,” said Dr. Alexander Noack, Fraunhofer IPMS’ Development Manager. “It combines the flexibility of wireless solutions with the benefits of cabled transmission and provides even greater bandwidth than radio-based solutions.”
