This work introduces an air-based macroscopic molecular communication testbed, exploiting the fluorescence property of a water- based solution of an organic compound called fluorescein. An efficient transmitter in the form of an industrial sprayer, coupled with a high-speed camera-based detection, eventually paves way to achieve higher data transmission rates. The transmission distances considered are in the range of several centimetres to metres. Additionally, models for spray nozzle injector and camera receiver are described to simulate the testbed in a particle-based simulator. These simulated models are calibrated to the used transmitter and receiver and are compared with the analytical models obtained from the testbed measurements.
