The inclusion of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) in high-end devices, such as TVs and smart-phones, along with the insertion of cameras embedded in daily use devices, provides the opportunity to establish optical camera communication (OCC) systems based on OLED emitters for Internet of Things (IoT). This Letter presents an experimental demonstration of this OLED-based OCC system for IoT. The results suggest that despite the low emitted power of OLED devices, long range links can be established based on OCC. One outdoor and two indoor scenarios are tested, validating BER below for short range and give just for long range links.
