LiFi using IR sensor and headphone jack

In our previous post, we explored using the Solar panel + Led as a LiFi module. In this post, we shall be using IR sensors in order to transmit data (tones and square wave signals) wireless. The schematics of the setup are given below:

One can use this to send square wave of any frequency independently as well. This has been demonstrated in the video below

Video Demo:
Watch the video demo for a live demonstration of the working of this concept.

This is not limited to tones, one can use it to transmit raw music as well.

 

LiFi using Solar Panel and headphone jack

In this post we shall be exploring the usage of the solar panel and a headphone jack as a probable LiFi based module. We will be making use of the Arduino’s ToneMelody example to play tones on a LED. The LED will be shone on a Solar panel whose output will be relayed on to the computer with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Now, some people might be uncomfortable in using an Arduino. OK! Instead of using the Arduino one can use combine the mobile phone and headphone jack to generate the tone instead. The schematics of this is given below:
