Battery-free communication for a green planet

Light bulbs have been recently explored to design Light Fidelity (LiFi) communication to battery-free tags, thus complementing Radiofrequency (RF) backscatter in the uplink. In this paper, we show that LiFi and RF backscatter are complementary and have unexplored interactions. Based on this premise, Sarmad Mir is presenting his latest paper “PassiveLiFi: Rethinking LiFi for Low-Power […]
