jewfish85 Posted April 14, 2013 Share Posted April 14, 2013 Hey All, Just curious, has anyone every tried using three of the mark IVs (or whatever combo of 3) to triangulate an AP? I worked on a project a couple years ago with a little robot that was controlled via wifi, and in the design phase the idea on how to tell the position of the robot was to triangulate it using four routers positioned around the room and to calculate it based on the timing of the signal received at each AP. But it became clear that it would be extremely challenging to calculate it within any degree due to difficulty in syncronizing all four APs timers and precise placement of them (not withholding a laundry list of other technicallities due in part to the distance of each AP to one another). But if the APs were placed in a single enclosure and then the antennas were placed X distance apart from each other, would it be possible to sync them up to be able to triangulate another AP signal? I've seen similar posts in the car computing forums where people were getting together to use police scanners to triangulate police cars and pinpoint them in a GPS mapping program. Never returned to see how far they got with it though... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
