Indoor Positioning System
The Indoor Positioning System (IPS) reference design has two cameras (IR and Visible light) in order to find the location of a robot in a room. One camera has a normal lens with an Infrared blocking filter and the other has an infrared sensitive lens with a daylight blocking filter. A unique feature of this design is that it uses wide angle lenses and can detect the IPS Transmitter across an entire room or warehouse. Due to sunlight having light within the IR spectrum range of the transmitter, this device can only be used indoors.
This project requires the IPS Transmitter: https://github.com/synthiam/E-44_IPS_Transmitter
