VLmC – Visible Light Mine Communications

Pays impliqués : France, Chili, Equateur

Projet Stic_AmSud

This project aims to strengthen the scientific collaboration around the field of VLC as an enabling technology for future wireless mine communications networks. It is built around multidisciplinary scientific researchers in France, Ecuador and Chile, working on different applications of VLC communications systems such as, high data rate wireless communications networks, indoor positioning and vehicular communications. This project is built around a first kick-off meeting in Ecuador. During the execution of the project, it is expected that student mobility as well as scientific transfer with mining-related and VLC technology development companies such as Codelco, AngloAmerican, Oledcomm and others will be carried out. Dissemination activities to the academic education will be lead as far as possible. A final meeting in Nancy, France is proposed in order to summarize the team results that will be shown in the final report and promote results in a scientific workshop. We also expect to develop further collaboration and joint projects application.
