In this Letter, we propose and demonstrate a novel wireless communications link using an illuminating optical fiber as a transmitter (Tx) in optical camera communications. We demonstrate an indoor proof-of-concept system using an illuminating plastic optical fiber coupled with a light-emitting diode and a commercial camera as the Tx and the receiver, respectively. For the first time, to the best of our knowledge, we experimentally demonstrate flicker-free wireless transmission within the off-axis camera rotation angle range of 0–45 and the modulation frequencies of 300 and 500 Hz. We also show that a reception success rate of 100% is achieved for the camera exposure and gain of 200 µs and 25 dB, respectively.
