Abstract: Visible light communication (VLC) is a desirable indoor communication system to transfer data using visible light. In this paper, visible light communication system using LED and video camera is considered as a transmitter and receiver for communicating and positioning, respectively. A new method is proposed for indoor positioning by the help of statistics and image processing tools. Furthermore, the proposed method is utilised based on neural networks and in variant moments in order to find and follow new location of the transmitter. The effectiveness of the proposed method is evaluated and proved by conducting experiments.

Keywords: visible light communication; VLC; neural networks invariant moments; indoor positioning; LED.
