OpenVLC 1.3 fully open source!

OpenVLC is an open-source, flexible and low-cost Visible Light Communication System platform. Research and development is coordinated by the Pervasive Wireless Systems group of Dr. Giustiniano at IMDEA Networks Institute, but anyone is welcome to contribute.

OpenVLC can achieve a throughput of 400 kb/s at the Transport Layer at a distance of more than 4 meter, powered simply by the BeagleBone Black.​  ​​

Now the OpenVLC 1.3 is fully open source! (hardware, firmware and driver). Code and schematics are available at

Our ESR Sarmad Mir made an important contribution on this success.
