Abstract
Visible light communication (VLC) systems have an advantage for simultaneously achieving communication and illumination. To strengthen the performance of VLC by using RGB light-emitting diodes (LEDs) while meeting the lighting requirements, the channel capacity and the transmission capability of the system are improved by utilizing the wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology. We make the chromaticity of the merged white light suitable for human eyes by the experiment. The parameters of merged white light based on RGB LEDs and the merging ratio data measured by the experiment are given. Hence, we study and analyze the eye diagrams and bit error rate (BER) of different optical channels. The simulation results show that maximum transmission rate of the output signal is up to 3.3  Gbit/s, and the BER is less than 10−5 with a transmission distance of 2.5 m while meeting standard illumination requirements.
