After two years of research, we have developed and launched Kiwink®. With Kiwink®, any product equipped with an LED can communicate using light.
A bidirectional, low-speed version of VLC (Visible Light Communication), Kiwink® is similar to Li-Fi, which supports higher speeds and addresses other target markets.
Using a smartphone’s camera and flash, any product can communicate and connect to the web via its LED. This makes it possible to gather product information and send commands and parameters via the smartphone.
We have identified several use cases for this new technology.
