Distance between two IR beacon transceivers


I have a pair of the IR beacon transceivers and they work well but I want to measure the distance between them, is it possible? I am using ultrasonic sensor to avoid obstacles btw



The IR beacons output digital signals, so it would not be very practical to use a pair of them to measure distance. It might be possible to use something like the ultrasonic sensors you have to estimate a range.
