Lucibel sees that LED revolution goes far beyond lighting and provides access to new markets. For several years, the group has decided to position itself on new uses of LED, namely in well-being (circadian lighting, cosmetics) and light-based communication (LiFi, VLC). Lucibel announces that it has won the contest issued by the French Army in June 2018 for LiFi equipment in the Technical Section of the Army, to test its technology of access to the internet by light.
Following this success, twenty LiFi luminaires were delivered to evaluate the relevance of this solution during an operational readiness exercise.
