This paper studies the performance of an indoor optical wireless communication system with visible light communication (VLC) technology in a cuboid room with a spatially random receiver. Considering that the receiver is uniformly distributed on the floor of a 4a m x 4b m x H m (where a > 0, b > 0 and H > 0) cuboid room, 4 light emitting diode (LED) lamps are all located at the center of 2a m x 2b m rectangle, which is a quarter of the ceiling area. The receiver chooses the best channel link to receive the information from the LED lamps, which depends on the distance between the receiver and each lamp. By using stochastic geometry theory, we derive the exact/approximated analytical expressions for the outage probability and the ergodic capacity, respectively. Finally, our derived analytical results are verified by Monte Carlo simulations.
