Wireless optical fiber links are the basic means of data transmission between movable objects. Radio links dominate in remote transmission. By means of open optical fiber links, it is possible to transmit data over short distances between objects. Depending on the technology used, it is possible to connect transmitting-receiving systems distant from one another by approximately twenty cm to twenty meters. Basic problems accompanying transmission to open optical links include the need for direct or indirect sensing of optical radiation from the emitter by the detector and the inherent propensity for interference. Among its advantages are: the possibility of obtaining greater data transmission speeds and an ease in changing direction, the difficulty posed to unwanted remote “viewing”, and the miniaturization of links. This paper presents basic open configurations of optical links used in data transmission with selected time-varying signals. Using remote transmission of data between a computer and mobile minirobot is shown.
