I am stuck and need some extra brain power.
I am attempting to build a grid of sensors with a trackable object...constrained to an X-Y plane, AND the object that is being tracked must be done so wirelessly.
The grid is 2 ft by 2 ft and I need to have the smallest possible sensors in order to locate the object preferably within 1mm. Even if there are 1000 sensors on the 2 ft grid, as long as accuracy is present, that is all that matters. Sensors can and should be touching each other on the grid. I will be viewing the grid on a basic computer monitor.
The object will be about the size of a quarter and will need a small transmitter that the sensors can read to show its location on the grid. I am not tracking speed or vertical distance...simply the location of the object on the grid...as close to real time as possible.
In a nutshell...I need to randomly toss the object onto the grid and see on the monitor exactly where the object lands.
I will be using the surrounding sensors for real time triangulation. Any and all ideas for this are greatly appreciated! Im even open to hybrid systems if necessary.
