In this paper, we propose the first study of MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) scheme using a simplified design of MIMO transmitter (Tx) based on grouping of light-emitting diodes (LED) within an array for flicker-free transmission in optical camera based communications (OCC) link. We carried out an initial experimental investigation of indoor static downlink OCC using a Raspberry Pi camera as the receiver with rolling-shutter capturing mode and a 7.2 cm × 7.2 cm small 64-neopixel LED array as the Tx. The initial study suggests that, despite the small area of the display, communication links from 20 up to 60 cm can be established.
