I'm currently an Electronic Engineering student. I'm coming to my third year and I can build a project of my choosing to write my dissertation about. I have decided to do it on Lifi. I would really appreciate some input on this and some experience to help me.
This is only a proof of concept but my plan is to have two lasers on two separate adjustable jigs which have photodiode receivers next to them. When pointed at each other the lasers will line up with the photodiodes.
I want to make the connection full duplex by using a pair of Raspberry Pis or Arduino's. As a proof of concept, I wish to just do some file sharing between two computers using this setup and the microcontrollers as middlemen. I was going to use a digital regenerator on each end to convert it back to serial and remove noise.
Is this achievable or am I setting the bar too high here? bare in mind that I can program in C and would have to learn python to code the raspberries.
