Why not try RF ? Triangulate your position with 3 transmitters in a room and you can find your way around to the docking station. Then use IR when the robot is close and needs to align to the charger.
QuoteWhy not try RF ? Triangulate your position with 3 transmitters in a room and you can find your way around to the docking station.

Remember that toy that I wanted to mod that had RF ranging on it?
But can't you determine your relative position based on the intensity levels of multiple transmitters?
But admin can't you tune the RF device to have a single value represent inches or feet , etc.
But then I realised that IR is in the spectrum of sunlight. I gues it isn't possible to work with the intesity?
Also, how does localization/GPS work? Dont they use RF? And GPS can be extremely accurate....
