Imagine a world where cars could talk to each other. Drivers could avoid accidents, predict traffic, pull over for ambulances before even hearing the siren.

We can do it—the technology already exists. This is SIGNAL, using Li-Fi technology.

Drive Safe

For decades, drivers have relied on horns and turn signals as their only way to communicate. Not anymore.

By combining Li-Fi technology with peer-to-peer networks, drivers can know when someone slams the brakes ten cars ahead. They could be notified of an emergency vehicle before the siren’s even close. SIGNAL eliminates the threat of last-minute accidents—it just makes driving safer. 

Will it cost a lot? Not at all. We don’t need to create a whole new highway infrastructure to make this happen. Nothing needs to get built. The tech is already in the cars; the lights just need to be retrofitted. The intersection between technology and driving is here.

*Vehicle will need both front and rear send / receive devices.

Possibilities at the Speed of Light

With Li-Fi, communication can happen anywhere there’s light. It could transform billboards into direct-messaging platforms, or restaurant signs into beamed-in menus. Worried about the safety of self-driving cars? With SIGNAL, they could actually talk to each other.

Bye-Bye, WiFi

In July 2011, an engineering professor at the University of Edinburgh introduced the world to Li-Fi. Now NASA is eyeing it for a manned Mars mission, Disney believes it can create high-tech dresses, Philips plans to beef up supermarket security, and Apple has dropped hints of future connectivity in its mobile iOS code. At more than 100 times the speed of WiFi, the world is waking up to the fact that light-based communications is cheaper, greener and faster.

It’s no secret that Li-Fi is the future. SIGNAL is already there.

What is Li-Fi?

Li-Fi, which is short for light fidelity, the technology is what is known as Visible Light Communication (VLC). Unlike infrared-based systems, VLC involves transmitting data using light visible to the human eye. In this case it is transmitted as intermittent, imperceptible flickers of light emitted by LEDs.

Peer-to-Peer Networking

In its simplest form, a peer-to-peer (P2P) network is created when two or more PCs (or in this case cars) are connected and share resources without going through a separate server computer. A P2P network can be an ad hoc connection.
