Title: MULTI-DIMENSIONAL LOCATION OF AN OBJECT USING MULTIPLE ELECTRICAL DEVICES
Abstract:
A system for locating an object in a volume of space can include multiple electrical devices, where each electrical device includes a transceiver. The system can also include a controller communicably coupled to the electrical devices. The controller can instruct the electrical devices to broadcast, using the transceiver, multiple first signals in the volume of space. The controller can also collect data associated with multiple second signals received by the transceiver of the electrical devices, where the second signals are sent by the object in response to the first signals. The controller can further determine, using the data, a multi-dimensional location of the object in the volume of space.
