Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe an angle diversity optical wireless system that operates at 280Mbits/s and provides bidirectional data transmission over a wide coverage area. The system uses commercially available components and operates at a wavelength of 860nm. Three terminals, each using seven transmitter and receiver channels were implemented, and the system was successfully tested in a wide range of different conditions. Implementation challenges, design and performance are also discussed, together with future directions for this work.
