I have been having great success with the IR Beacon Pair pololu.com/catalog/product/702 for my autonomous hexapod robot project. The robot (with one beacon installed on it) is programmed to follow the other beacon (Target). I wish to add to its target following capabilities by adding another beacon unit (Home), so it walks between one beacon (Home) to another beacon (Target) and back Home.
So I was hoping to inquire if the IR beacon pair are optimized to work with the included two units only? Do I just need to buy another beacon transceiver (single unit) pololu.com/catalog/product/701 for the “Home” and switch between the two (Target)/(Home).
Note: Just to clarify the (Target)/(Home) beacons will not be ON at the same time.
Any advising regarding my queries would be greatly appreciated.
