In this poster, we present the first experimental results of our OFDM-based Vehicular VLC (V-VLC) prototype. Our Bit Error Rate (BER) measurements show that for lower Modulation and Coding Schemes (MCS), the performance of our hardware-setup roughly behaves the same as it does in simulation for AWGN channel. However, for higher order MCS with high PAPR, the BER performance gets degraded due to non-linear behavior of LEDs, and deviates further from AWGN performance as the MCS order is increased. The obtained results suggest that unlike RF-Communications, where the focus is usually towards linearity of the amplifiers, for V-VLC, linearity within the whole system is required to achieve optimal performance.
