In molecular communication information is transferred with the use of molecules. Molecular multiple-input multipleoutput (MIMO) system with drift (positive velocity) at macroscale will be presented and the improvement against singleinput single-output (SISO) molecular communication systems will be verified via our testbed. Until now it was unclear whether MIMO techniques, which are extensively used in modern radio frequency (RF) communications, could be applied to molecular communication. In the demonstration, using our MIMO testbed we will show that we can achieve nearly 1.7 times higher data rate than SISO molecular communication systems. Moreover, signal-to-inter-linkinterference metric for one-shot signal will be depicted for a given symbol duration.
