In today’s world, everything around us are about to expose the harmful radiations. In India, there is no proper automatic monitoring system for the patients in the hospital. Even in the hospitals, the surgeries are done using Internet connectivity where WI-FI leads the way. The Wi-Fi technology uses RF spectrum which exhibits the harmful radiations. The LI-FI Technology will overcome this effect as it uses visible light as a source which is non-hazardous. Some of the death in the medical field happens due to the lack of proper electric facilities and monitoring system. By means of using LI-FI we can overcome the problems of power insufficiency and also the data transmission. Our Li-Fi kit will act as a mediator that converts any kind of visible light source into data for transmission. So, the one who has our kit can send and receive data in high speed even at a rate of several Gbps.
