In this paper, we design a novel high-throughput random access scheme for an indoor optical wireless communication (OWC) massive Internet of Things (IoT) scenario. Due to the large density of both IoT devices and OWC access points (APs), we base the proposed scheme on multi-receiver coded slotted ALOHA. In this scenario, collisions at APs are resolved by a centralized interference cancellation decoder that may exploit both spatial and temporal diversity. By applying adaptive control of each OWC

Using illustrative simulation results, we demonstrate the design methodology and performance possibilities of the proposed method.
