Light-Fidelity (Li-Fi) is a wireless communication technology, which uses light as the medium of communication. In this paper, we discuss Li-Fi as a communication strategy for building dynamic factory layouts. Advantages of Li-Fi are the low energy consumption, the straightforward implementation, the cost-efficient maintenance and the easy identification of factory layouts. This paper focuses on designing a customized Li-Fi transceiver, which provides point-to-point and full-duplex communication within an Industry 4.0 learning factory. Furthermore, we propose a conceptual model for the adaption of Li-Fi communication in distributed factory planning applications. Finally, we describe the prototypical implementation of the proposed conceptual model. The primary scientific contribution of this paper is to present the reliability of a custom-designed four-way Li-Fi transceiver inside an industry 4.0 learning laboratory.
