We propose an imaging receiver (ImR) using angle diversity detectors for indoor space division multiplexing-based visible light communication (SDM-VLC) systems. Compared with a conventional ImR which utilizes vertically oriented detectors, the proposed imaging angle diversity receiver (ImADR) enjoys two main advantages, including a wider field-of-view (FOV) and higher optical gain. Both theoretical analysis and Monte Carlo simulations are carried out to evaluate the performance of the proposed ImADR in an indoor four-channel SDM-VLC system. Analytical results show that, for a target bit error rate of 10^{math\rm { {-3}}} , the proposed ImADR-based SDM-VLC system achieves 44% reduction in the transmit optical power and 130% coverage improvement than the system using a conventional ImR.
