Visible Light Communication (VLC) is a novel optical wireless communication technology which uses Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Photodiodes for coherent detection and very-high-data rate data communication system. The stringent Line of Sight (LoS) requirement in VLC makes it very suitable for Indoor Positioning System (IPS), to be used for autonomous and smart city infrastructure. The current work aims to implement a real time IPS system using VLC link in Network Simulator (NS-3). The VLC module is implemented by modelling real-time attributes of LEDs, optical channel, and the photodiodes. The localization is carried out using trilateration scheme which measures received signal strength interference (RSSI) for position estimation of the target. Furthermore, a comparison is carried out between VLC link and other existing technology, Wi-Fi, as far as positioning accuracy and other important performance metrics are concerned. The simulation results show significant improvement for the VLC link over the Wi-Fi link.
