Abstract

We are at the dawn of an era in information and communication technology with unprecedented demand for connected and automated everything. Both Shannon theories and industrial advances have clearly evidenced that more densely packed networks and a much wider operating bandwidth are key drivers for meeting the escalating wireless network demands. Recently, there have been substantial research efforts on the exploitation of higher frequency bands, in particular the millimetre wave and optical wireless bands. After a decade of active research and development, and along with the maturity of device technology, Visible Light Communications (VLC) has emerged as a very promising technology to enable next generation digital innovations and support wide range of applications. This special issue on VLC focuses on three core thrusts of the discipline: Localisation, Communication and Networking. The overall aim of the special issue is to inspire multi-disciplinary international communities to work together in order to achieve further research advances. Indeed, a total of 96 high quality papers were received from both academia and industry. After a careful peer-reviewing process, 17 papers were selected based on their combined novelty, rigour, and impact. Owing to the highly selective nature of JSAC, many other interesting papers were not selected for the special issue, but we hope that these papers might appear elsewhere.
