Visible light communication (VLC) is an emerging communication technology that perfectly integrates into crowded legacy radio frequency (RF) environments to increase bandwidth. Despite the fact that integrating these technologies would be beneficial for both of them, there is only little research on handover mechanisms, and most of it is simulation only. We design a software defined radio (SDR) based VLC+WiFi testbed in which both technologies can coexist, design handover mechanisms between VLC and WiFi, and evaluate them based on user-induced link blockage measurements in our testbed.
