Directional tracking

first post!yay!

Hello,am super new to arduino but i want to make a tracking project for my uni.I bought 2 arduino unos some cables ,servos , breadboards and transceiver modules from ebay.What i want to do is locating the direction of a transmitter(nrf24l01) with sets 2 or more receiver(nrf24l01) placed at the corner of a square.So like 2 receiver at each corner and one transmitter somewhere in the square of known dimension.Then using the angles to deduce the position of the transmitter.Is this even possible?

Common sense says “probably not”

Thanks for the reply.

Could i mount 2 or more nrf24l01 on a 2 axis fpv with servos and see where it gets the most signal from thus getting a direction?.

What sort of baseline?

I assume you mean distance between the receivers,which i would guess about 20 cm.Like each one has a signal strength and the servo moves until it finds the correct (highest intensity signal) direction for a transmitter that is prehaps 30-40 cm away.

That looks like a very neat system. A way to keep track of the locations of all of the vehicles in an unmanned swarm in a gps denied environment.

Yes very neat indeed,however i wanted to do a system that uses angles rather than time,so i wanted to know if i can monitor the intensity of the nrf24l01 modules signal accurately enough to have a direction.

You need directional antennas for that, for example Yagi beam antennas. Look up "radio direction finding".
