We have developed a communication system for ad-hoc interconnections between smart objects and user terminals. The communication system is based on infrared (IR) technology and enables an ultra-low power operation, a very low price and a small size of smart objects; the power consumption needed for the communication being only a few microwatts in typical applications. The target requirements, the technical implementation principles and evaluation results by a macroprototype of the communication system are described in this paper. According to the evaluation, the communication system is feasible and the target requirements are attainable.
