We present a real-time indoor visible light positioning system based on the optical camera communication, where the coordinate data in the ON–OFF keying format is transmitted via light-emitting diode-based lights and captured using a smartphone camera. The position of the camera is estimated using a novel perspective- n -point problem algorithm, which determines the position of a calibrated camera from n 3D -to-2D point correspondences. The experimental results show that the proposed system offers mean position errors of 4.81 and 6.58 cm for the heights of 50 and 80 cm, respectively.
