Many existing indoor localization systems have achieved applaudable performance through comprehensive modeling of its envisioned working scenario. [] Key Method The underlying technique is to exploit the light splitting properties of convex lens to create an one-to-one mapping between a location and the set of orthogonal digital light signals receivable at that location. Advanced designs are also introduced to further improve the system accuracy and scalability beyond the hardware capability. In evaluating…
