In this paper, we apply the perfect difference codes in wireless infrared systems considering the diffuse indoor optical wireless configuration. The bit error rate performance of the uplink wireless infrared system using Gaussian approximations is analyzed taking into account the effects of multiple-access interference, the ambient light noise, and the dark current. The proposed system also uses the compact encoder and decoder architecture resulting in a low cost system.
