LED Lighting : Source for Future Internet Access
LED Revolution -
Scientists are always working on new things.Its always a wonderful to see new ideas warming up.The new buzz in town is the use of Wi-Fi internet under LED lighting.This may sound impossible but its very much achievable,as the scientists are very much confident that they would develop this concept into reality.
Smart Lightning Engineering Research Center will be carried forward by Boston University,Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the University of New Mexico.The US Nation Science Foundation is funding $18.5M for this project.
The concept is very simple,to use LED lights in replacement of the currently used bulbs,these LEDS lightnings will be transmitting signals and any internet device put under them will have access to use internet.They will need no extra power,working on the same power source of the bulb which they will replace.
If this project gets successful,it will solve alot of problems,like saving almost 50 Billion US dollars and reduce environmental problems.
