In recent years visible light communication (VLC) has been matured as an emerging wireless optical technology. Main attraction of VLC is its dual functionality of providing illumination and data from the same light bulb. VLC has been considered for many application areas for its unique characteristics, where this work introduces VLC for novel indoor positioning and navigation architecture. To establish this novel architecture, VLC ID transmission method with digital mapping has been introduced. Proposed solution provides accurate and reliable positioning by using dual functionality light bulbs without installation of additional hardware infrastructure in the buildings. Additionally, this work shows a VLC augmented architecture with existing wireless radio frequency (RF) technologies for indoor tracking applications.
