Hello,
Iam having a bit of trouble trying to figure out how to make this work,what were trying to do is get our devices physical location but we need accuracy of its position min 1ft these devices will be placed in a industrial building on the floor all the way up in the ceiling they could also be placed on top of each other.The idea is the operator will have a smartphone and will open are app and the app will display the camera the operator will point the camera around the facility while boxes with information about that device popup.Something similar to the nokia city lens app is how ours would work,we imagine atleast a gps module would be used even if accuracy isnt precise,then we could use bluetooth from each device to ping to other devices in range and determine each devices more precise location.All of the devices will be connected to each other using ethernet,on its own lan network.
Any input is appreciated thanks

There is ready made application software for this type of tracking (geophysical) used by companies for laptop security.
It can track devices in a multistory building with good accuracy. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the software.
