There is a double problem.

1) This kind of broadcast system, where the sender never receives
confirmation from the destination.  A system like this requires certain
insurance that the destination WILL receive the packet correctly.

2) Different from a real broadcast system, where the sender keeps sending
the same transmission over and over, this unidirectional communication
system probably will really need a collision avoidance by monitoring the IR
environment before transmit.

Of course, for better safety any kind of checksum is required.

Also, a bi-directional system can be implemented, with confirmation, "ack",
"nack", etc.  It will make the collision avoidance easier to implement.
