Abstract

Aiming at the problem of uneven distribution of receiving illuminance and optical power on the receiving plane of the visible light communication (VLC) system, this paper proposes a light source optimization method based on an improved bat algorithm (IBA). Taking the rectangular and hybrid layouts with 16 light-emitting diodes (LEDs), as examples, we set the variance of received light power on the receiving plane as the fitness function. By redesigning the speed update method and local search method of the traditional bat algorithm (BA), the IBA is used to optimize the LED half-power angle and LED position that affect the system performance. The simulation results show that, considering the primary reflection of the wall, the method can reduce the received illumination and optical power fluctuation of the receiving plane within a limited number of iterations under different light source layout schemes.
