Which method is better, in term of accuracy, for detection of indoor localization of a drone. Camera based system or wireless techniques like WLAN or Bluetooth?

    $\begingroup$ I voted to close this because it is primarily opinion based. If you have some specifications you can provide this might be a good question (cost, range, accuracy, lighting conditions, number of sensors, etc.), but as it stands a "which is better A or B" with no qualifiers can't be answered. $\endgroup$ – Chuck Sep 7 '15 at 13:39

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps the question should be reworded to highlight the strength/weakness trade-offs between the different sensing schemes, rather than which one is better. $\endgroup$ – Ben Sep 8 '15 at 13:46
  • $\begingroup$ Sadly @Ben list questions tend not to be very useful for very long either. While they may provide a nice snapshot at a moment in time, they are frequently left to get out of date. That's why we prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth Sep 28 '15 at 8:12
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to robotics Ameer Hamza, but I'm afraid that questions like this are not a good fit for a stack exchange question. We prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face, so it is a good idea to include details of what what you would like to achieve, what you have tried, what you expected to see and what you actually saw. Take a look at How to Ask and tour for more information on how stack exchange works. If you edit your question to make it less opinion based, flag it and we can reopen it for you. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth Sep 28 '15 at 8:15

Definitely camera based options, however, I would go with IR sensors or some even some sound-based sensors if you want a really specific measurement.


As far as I know, wireless signals are quite less acurate than camera based ones. Probably the best would be IR sensors equipment with cameras, but that's also the most expensive
