Comments:
pros.
- The topic is interesting for the conference audience.
- Motivations are clear and convincing.

Main issue:
The message of the paper is not clear. The Authors should
clarify what are the challenges/issues and how they are
addressing these challenges. What are the issues of
combining VLC and UWB to be addressed? What is a possible
solution to address them?

Other cons.
- Table I is never mentioned in the text and it's meaning is
not clear.
- Figures 1 and 2 are not explained. Moreover the position
of Fig. 1 figures should be changed to be on the same page
of the text.
- At the beginning of sect. IV, what is the "transition power"?
- There is no explanation of figures from 4 to 7. How this
data was acquired/calculated? What is the aim of these graphs?


Minor issues
- There are some unspecified references, they appear in the
paper as [?].

Comments:
The authors propose a communication solution for mobile
robots using UWB for uplink/downlink and VLC for downlink
only.

The proposal is interesting. However, in my opinion, this
proposal is still in a pre-WIP phase: there are only
ideas (concepts) but no platforms developed or
intermediate results. In conclusion, the work is still in
a very preliminary stage.
