CamComSim: a LED-to-Camera Communication Simulator

Abstract : In this paper, we present CamComSim, the first simulator for development and rapid prototyping of LED-to-Camera communication systems. Our event driven simulator relies on a standalone Java application that is easily extensible through a set of interfaces. A range of low and high-level parameters, such as the camera characteristics, the physical layer data unit size, or the redundancy mechanism can be chosen. CamComSim uses empirically validated models for the LED-to-Camera channel and the broadcast protocols, configurable with a finely grained precision. To validate CamComSim implementation and accuracy, we use a real life testbed based on a color LED and a smartphone and compare the performance reached by the testbed with the results given by our simulator. We illustrate with a real use case the full usage of CamComSim, tuning a broadcast protocol that implements the transmission of 1 kbyte of information. The results highlight that our simulator is very precise and predicts the performance of a real LED-to-Camera system with less than 10% of error in most cases.
