Paper Abstract

Recently, visible light positioning has gradually become a research hotspot in indoor environments. Based on a single transmitter and a single tilted optical receiver, a three-dimensional (3-D) indoor visible light positioning system is proposed. The tilted optical receiver is installed on a rotatable and retractable platform. The 3-D space is divided many two-dimensional (2-D) planes by lifting the platform of the optical receiver. In each 2-D plane, various azimuth angles can be obtained by rotating the receiver platform, which offers a feasible way to perform multiple measurements with different azimuth angles to achieve the angle gain. According to the difference of the angle gain, a 3-D positioning algorithm is proposed. Experimental results show that the proposed positioning algorithm can provide good positioning accuracy.
