Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

Self-location of devices in an illuminated area can be realized using light-emitting diode array luminaires with integrated electronic smart control. These smart lighting sources project a rapidly displayed time sequence of spatial illumination patterns onto the scene, which enables positioning on a millisecond timescale. We demonstrate a prototype system based on a CMOS-driven 16×16 array of GaN light-emitting diodes and its application to space-division multiple access in a Gb/s optical wireless network.
