[802.15-GENERAL-LIST] Soliciting IEEE802.15.7r1 Tutorial Contributions

Please feel free to forward the following message


Subject: Soliciting IEEE802.15.7r1 Tutorial Contributions


IEEE task group 802.15.7r1 has been formed to generate a revision to the original IEEE802.15.7 standard Short-Range Wireless Optical Communication Using Visible Light.


Task group IEEE802.15.7r1 will commence in January 2015 followed by bi-monthly meetings (every two months) until revision completion.  A revision, as opposed to an amendment, allows the task group to consider adding both low rate PHY modes (e.g. utilizing an image sensor as part of the receiver) and higher rate PHY modes (e.g. OFDM based modulation schemes).  Revisions to the MAC can also be considered.


This email announcement is soliciting informative tutorial input from interested parties to be integrated into a joint multi-party informative tutorial contribution for presentation to IEEE802 at the March 2015 IEEE802 plenary.  The scope of the tutorial is a high level presentation of the possible activities of IEEE802.15.7r1 over the coming months and contributing to this tutorial is neither a commitment nor a guarantee as to the content of the actual IEEE802.15.7r1 document.


At this point we are only soliciting an indication of interest in contributing material to the March tutorial.  An example response is shown below.

Company Name: Acme Electronics

Interest: Adding another PHY to 15.7r1

Contact Information: Joe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Please respond via email to the IEEE802.15.7r1 technical editor at richard.d.roberts@xxxxxxxxx by December 19, 2014.  The technical editor will then coordinate the process of collecting and editing the tutorial contribution.  He will also report status and progress to the task group at the January 2015 meeting.  You do not need to be at the March 2015 plenary meeting to have your material considered but active participation is strongly encouraged.  Details on upcoming meetings can be found at
