This paper introduces infrastructure-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-vehicle communications using VLC.A VLC coupled with a high-speed image sensor is introduced (i.e.,image sensor communication).The high-speed image sensors provide eyes for autonomous and connected vehicles.VLC imparts data reception capability to image sensors with necessary functions,which can then be provided to autonomous and connected vehicles.In this paper,some of our research on coupling VLC to high-speed image sensors is introduced,including our key findings:the basics of ISC,a vehicle motion model,and range estimation.

Key words: VLC(VisibleLightCommunication), ISC(ImageSensorCommunication), high-speedimagesensor, OCI(OpticalCommunicationImageSensor), vehiclemotionmodel, rangeestimation, POC(Phase-OnlyCorrelation)
