In this article, we propose an indoor location estimation algorithm that uses the signal extinction ratio distribution of LED-based visible light communication.To improve the positioning accuracy, we use the received extinction ratio from different LED transmitters. In order to mitigate interference between transmitters, a location code was sent using time division multiplexing (TDM). We verified the feasibility of the proposed position estimation algorithm with an experimental demonstration. The proposed algorithm provided positioning accuracy with a 1.5787-cm mean distance error for a given equilateral triangle cell with three 60-cm sides.
