Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis work researches the theory and application of systems performing omnidirectional, non-direct path optical data communication (ONP systems). Such systems are characterized by 1) the communication involves a local, usually circular area; 2) Obstacles are allowed between a transmitter and the receivers. This is in contrast to the point-to-point and line-of-sight communications performed by almost all existing infrared data communication or transmission systems. The elimination of the point-to-point limitation makes ONP systems suitable for optical local area networking. The feasibility of ONP systems employing infrared LEDs and silicon photo detectors has been analyzed and the performance of such systems predicted. The analysis shows that indoor ONP systems are both feasible and practical. Only a few LEDs are required to cover the entire area of a large room. Efforts have been made in finding rules for optimal design of the ONP systems. A set of design criteria and curves have been established. The theoretical analysis has been verified in a successful experiment done with OptoNet, an ONP infrared datalink for local area networks. This experimental system consists of two identical communication units employing FSK modulation and microprocessor controllers. The experiment has demonstrated that the ONP optical data communications can be realized by relatively simple electronic hardware.
