Abstract

Optical wireless communication has the potential for extremely high data rates of up to tens of Gb/s. In this study, a hybrid modulation technique named adaptive differential amplitude pulse-position modulation (DAPPM) is proposed to improve channel immunity by utilising optimised modulation to channel. The unit transmission rate, channel capacity, peak-to-average power ratio, bandwidth requirement and power requirement of the DAPPM were determined and compared with other modulation schemes such as on–off key, pulse-amplitude modulation, pulse-position modulation (PPM), differential PPM and multilevel digital pulse interval modulation. The simulation results show that DAPPM gives better bandwidth and power efficiency depending on the number of amplitude level (A) and the maximum length (L) of a symbol. In addition, the fuzzy logic module is developed to assist the adaptation process of DAPPM. Mamdani fuzzy logic method is used in which the decisions made by the system will be approaching to what would be decided by the user in the real world.
