This paper studies an Indoor Positioning System (IPS) based on Visible Light Communication (VLC) using the solar cell as an optical receiver unlike conventional receivers. Due to the advantage of the solar cell such as: low cost, flexibility, and high light sensitivity, the proposed system is capable of simultaneous communication and energy gathering. The studied system is considered like an environmentally friendly and a promising technology in the next years.
