Visible light communications (VLC) using white light emitting diodes (WLED) has become popular due to the ability to provide illumination and data communications simultaneously. There are a number of challenges in VLC systems; one of the most critical being the effect of fluorescent light interference (FLI) which has largely been ignored. In this paper, we study the effect of FLI and introduce the wavelet transform (WT) and artificial neural network (ANN) based receiver to reduce effect of FLI as well as increase the available data rates.
