I'm looking for the best way of recognizing the position of the persons in a big room for installations. Making this with jitter I know there's no problem. However, the idea is that each person should have something like a serial number for tracking his position wherever he would be in the room. What do you think is the best way for communicate all this data into MAx? And of course, which do you think is not the most expensive way, for example for 30 persons.
- Jitter: I think it's not possible. Maybe we could put a color or a number, but if this person goes out of the room, when he comes back to the room, Jitter we'll assign another number or color.
- Sensor GPS: giving an small arduino constructed with GPS sending by Xbee the position to the "father" of arduinos, which will be conected to Max.
- Radiofrequency Identification (ttp://www.phidgets.com/)
- May be it's possible to connect all mobile phones of the persons to a wifi system that sends and receive information from four routers and gets x and y position.
- IR cameras?
So complex to get the serial number of each person. On the second hand, thinking about giving an abject like a small arduino, this could send data to max like "device 1 pos.x 14 pos.y 400". Just tracking the x,y (and z) position, it could be great.
What do you think about? Which could be the most eficient for max? And also for the economy?
Thank you very much for your ideas.
