    Abstract

    In this paper the error performance analysis of a low complexity, multiple transmitter generalised space shift keying (GSSK) signalling technique for short range indoor visible light communications is presented. In an N_t transmitter system, this signalling technique is capable of achieving a spectral efficiency of N_t bits/s/Hz. The GSSK system has a higher spectral efficiency than the conventional on-off keying (OOK) and pulse position modulation (PPM) techniques. The GSSK transmitter is much simpler than that of an equivalent regular pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) system with similar spectral efficiency.
