In order to solve the problem of parking lot difficulty, communication security and low efficiency of garage, with the garage using LED lighting, designed an underground garage navigation system based on visible light communication, which uses the lighting system in the garage to realize the real-time monitoring of the parking space and the navigation of the vehicle. This paper designed the navigation system of underground garage based on the principle of visible light communication in the garage with LED lighting. Result shows that the system achieves signal transmission in the range of 4 m, which can meet the needs of vehicle navigation.
