Li-Fi shown as emergency tool in subway disaster scenario

At an event named Operation Convergent Response (OCR), held at the Guardian Centers training facility in Perry, GA, pureLiFi demonstrated its wireless Li-Fi technology in a subway disaster scenario where Li-Fi technology was used to maintain real-time, bi-directional communications that could enable communications with a command centre allowing the emergency services to maintain safe, reliable connectivity during a response.

The Guardian Center is a world class US training facility for disaster response units who can gain experience under real emergency conditions. The event featured technologies that could advance communications during rescue operations and ultimately save lives.

Li-Fi uses light rather than radio frequencies technology such as Wi-Fi and therefore can provide wireless connectivity in areas that Wi-Fi cannot such as power plants, petrochemical facilities, and hospitals.

Li-Fi also eliminates interference because light can be directed. pureLiFi’s systems can be simply installed alongside existing lighting infrastructures making the technology suitable anywhere light, and communications are required, such as industrial settings.

“Li-Fi provides uniquely reliable wireless communications in unpredictable conditions such as disaster circumstances. Due to the growing pervasiveness of LED lighting and the high speed, safe, secure and noninvasive qualities of Li-Fi the applications for this technology are limitless. Li-Fi will provide connectivity for our homes, our offices or public spaces and beyond,” said pureLiFi’s CEO Alistair Banham.
