Hey Folks, I am new to the forum. Thanks for having me! I am also fairly new to tech so pleas bear with me.
I am working on a project and I am not sure if the technology I need exits. I am hoping you can point me in the right direction.
I have attached a photo which will diagram what i am explaining.
Basically I need a sensor (POINT A) that is aware of its relationship to beacons (POINTS B, C, and D). If B, C, and D are moved A is aware of, and measuring, the change in relationship. This represented by the orange lines. The orange lines are essential digital strings that attach the beacons to the sensor. The sensor at least needs to read the distance of each beacon, but ideally reads the angle as well. perhaps is a digital line is drawn ( depicted in purple on the second diagram) as a line to measure the angle against.
This would all happen on a single plain. Imagine B, C, and D are all marbles on a table with beacons in them, and a is sitting on the table as well.
Accuracy is very important, down to the mm. Pinpoint is ideal.
Dose a technology like this exist at all?
Thanks for the help folks.
