Sorry if this has been asked already. Will it be possible to tell
distance and/or direction from one laptop to another? If so, any idea
how accurate such figures might be? Also, if it can be achieved from a
single laptop or if it would likely require data from multiple laptops
for the calculations to work?
I'm looking at how different multiplayer gaming models could apply to
the laptop. One of those is location based mobile phone gaming. The
key aspects for the various models are distance, direction and physical
location. The resolution and accuracy of each also comes into play.
There are models for games simply based simply on distance, some on
direction and distance, and others based on physical points in space
What I'd ideally like to know is which of distance, direction and
location may be achievable on the laptop and to what accuracy. At this
time, however, I'm only looking for an rough indication of if it's
impossible, difficult, easy or simply unknown.
