We propose a rate-adaptive transmission scheme using repeated and punctured convolutional codes for indoor infrared wireless communications. The proposed system uses a coding scheme consisting of an outer punctured convolutional code and an inner repetition code, and varies code rate, i.e., bit rate adaptively depending on channel conditions. We show that the proposed system can realize communications in worse channel conditions at the expense of bit rate, while maximizing the throughput available to a user on his position.
