Visible Light Positioning

Visible Light Positioning (VLP) is the implementation of Indoor Positioning through the use of VLC.

AASA's VLP solution takes advantage of LED lights as well as mobile phone cameras, offering high-level accuracy (+/- 8cm or +/- 3 inches), while it is able of providing real time localization (less than 34 ms).


VLP has a wide area of applications, including:

  • Airports
  • Museums
  • Retail
  • Exhibitions
  • Navigation for the Visually Impaired
  • Robots and in-door Drones
  • Virtual Reality (VR) and Gaming
  • Asset Management
  • Individual Tracking
  • Can be customized to other indoor positioning applications

The VLP solution AASA offers, operates well even when a smartphone is not directly under light sources, it does not require additional hardware, and provides 3-dimensional orientation. AAS's VLP solution has been demonstrated on various smartphones, tablets, and Raspberry Pi devices.
