Magnetic Positioning Sphere - A Single-Source 3D Positioning System using Rotating Magnetic Fields韋同 陳, Taiwan (台灣) Finalist, 16-18
I have created a single-source positioning system - Magnetic Positioning Sphere (MPS) by obtaining the positions of an object on a spherical coordinate system. For methodology, I used Received Signal Strength (RSS) to compute the distance and Rotating Magnetic Fields to compute the angles. Throughout system development, I overcome lots of challenges to turn this imaginary concept into realistic. The observations show that the positioning accuracy and stability of this system meet the requirements of most applications. The greatest advantage of the MPS system is that it can be setup in seconds, saving lots of time and money for installation.
