IR beacon arduino with TV-B-GONE kit

by TimJ477 on Fri Aug 03, 2018 7:38 pm

I have created a self driving car. I want to create an indoor GPS system, using four TV-B-Gone kits as the GPS satellites. I am thinking I could have each of the TV-B-GONE to only send out one code all the time like "360" and the others "90", "180", "270". I would have to make it so they never turned off and constantly sent out the signals.
Question:
Is there a safe way to make these changes?
OR
Is there a better way to do this.

Thanks,

TimJ477

you could but its unlikely to work, IR bounces around too much. we don't have an indoor positioning system. they're notoriously difficult to make!
