Abstract

From the perspective of ensuring life safety, combined with the advantages of high-speed time response and energy conservation of white light emitting diodes (LEDs), the visible light indoor positioning algorithm based on fire safety is proposed in the paper. First, the model is designed which needs three LED lights arranged in a straight line and positioned in the geographically north direction on the top of the model. Then, the proposed algorithm is discussed and analyzed when the camera is located at the center of the model and facing north, when the camera is located at the center of the model and the angle is rotated, and when the camera is located at any position of the model, respectively. It can accurately calculate the current position of the camera, its response speed is fast and the positioning accuracy is high. Furthermore, this paper also verifies the practicability and reliability of the algorithm by designing the visible light indoor positioning system based on fire safety rescue in natural environment and smoke environment. The experimental results show that the positioning error does not exceed 0.70 cm in smoke environment.
