Paper Abstract

Atmospheric optical wireless communication is a fading channel because of the effect of atmospheric attenuation. We introduce a novel turbo code named the two-fold turbo code scheme to provide high performance for optical wireless communication. To use the two-fold turbo code over optical wireless channels, first deduce the formula of atmospheric channel signal-noise-ratio versus atmospheric visibility, then analyze the coding and decoding principle of the two-fold turbo code. Simulations show that the proposed two-fold turbo code significantly improves the performance of the system compared to the common turbo code.
