|I have a hobby project in mind but I'm not sure which technologies will give me the most bang for my buck long term.|
I want to track my 3D position accurately within my apartment. My first use case is to track how long I sleep and how long I watch TV etc. without using some sort of reporting mechanism. I would like to incrementally add more advanced features such as gesture recognition for integration with smart devices etc.
I have read about using RF signals and signal processing to track 3D motion indoors without using wearables (https://www.emeraldinno.com/publications). There must be ways to do it with wearables and bluetooth. Posyx (https://www.pozyx.io/) works with UW signals.
Has anyone had experience with a similar project? Which technologies did you use? Is there specific hardware you would reccommend?
