[802SEC] CALL FOR APPLICATIONS on Optical Camera Communications (Jan. Meeting, 2014)

EC Colleagues

It would be appreciated of you could forward this to your working groups or any other organization you think may have an interest in Optical Camera Communications.

Thanks and Regards

608c763.jpgCALL FOR APPLICATIONS on Optical Camera CommunicationsIEEE 802.15 has formed a Study Group to draft a Project Authorization Request (PAR) for an amendment to IEEE 802.15.7-2011 implementing Optical Camera Communications(OCC) enabling scalable data rate, positioning/localization, and message broadcasting, etc. using things like the flash, display and image sensor as the transmitting and receiving devices. In support of this activity Contributions are requested addressing potential applications. 

RELEASE DATE: November, 2013

For Presentations at the January 2014 Session in Los Angeles, CA, USA and the March 2014 Session in Beijing, China

Information in regards to these meetings can be found at:

IEEE P802.15.SG7a Optical Camera Communications Study Group is studying applications and technology in support of creating a Project Authorization Request (PAR) for creating a task group to write an air interface standard that supports the transmission of data by modulated lights that can be received and processed via an image sensor.

This Call for Applications (CFA) solicits input which will help in the creation of the PAR.

The following is a list of some optical camera communications characteristics which may be leveraged in a particular application.

- The receiver may be an image sensor associated with a camera. The objective is to enable the reception of data modulated light without making any hardware modifications to the camera enabled platform.
- The light sources may be multi-colored, uni-colored or white.
- The lens associated with the camera may offer spatial separation of light sources that opens up the possibility of doing MIMO data transmissions.
- There have been a number of optical camera communications demonstrations uploaded to YouTube, using different modulation and detection methods, as listed below.
a) Under-sampled Frequency Shifted ON-OFF Keying (UFSOOK) (Intel Labs)
b) Nyquist Sampled Picapicamera (Casio)
c) Rolling Shutter Sampling (PureVLC)
The study group would be interested in hearing about applications for optical camera communications technologies.
