Green Environment Monitoring System (Gems) for Industries using Li-Fi Technology


Objective: This work assures to design a green environment monitoring system for industries using Li-Fi technology to provide secured communication, high data rate transfer and pollution free environment. Methods: The LPC 2148 microcontroller with ARM 7 core is chosen for implementation. Light-emitting diodes are used as the source for data transmission and they are preferred as they have a longer life-time. Different sensors are deployed to monitor various parameters namely temperature, Gas and light intensity in an industrial environment and these sensors transmit the sensed information using Li-Fi technology in terms of flickering of LEDs. Linear quadratic estimation algorithm is implemented to improve the accuracy of sensor values. Findings: The proposed system is implemented in ARM 7 Core (LPC2148) that consumes less power. The designed system provides communication at the rate of 1.5 Mb/s over a distance of 5 meters and they are free from electromagnetic interference. They are not affected by artificial or natural light sources. Improvement/Applications: The implementation of Linear Quadratic estimator improved the accuracy of sensor output values. This technology is eco-friendly and the working atmosphere is conserved thereby ensuring a green environment. The sensors used in industrial applications communicate with low cost and also in a secured manner.
