First LiFi technology test at BMW factory in Munich

The Fraunhofer HHI research institute, a pioneer in the development of LiFi, presented the first real-time test of a LiFi communication with a mobile robot at the BMW plant in Munich while it was carrying out normal production processes (welding and moving parts production). The data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and photodiodes, achieving a data transmission of 100 Mbit/s and a latency of 5 milliseconds.
