I have a toy car and I want to measure the coordinates/location of that car in my house.

It need to bee high precision equipment so GPS won't work here.

My precision requriments is 5+- cm and the distance is like 10-20 meters as maximum raduis.

What module should I use then?

    you could mount cameras to the walls and track the object optically

  • @jsotola that won't work for me. It need to be very like GPS, but local.

  • While there certainly are systems, that work like a local GPS, they will be very expensive and most likely not easy to use. Honestly I wouldn't know, where I would be able to source such a system. Please explain more about the requirements. Why won't cameras work for you?

    there is no "module" you can use. Heck, there's not really anything you can use with an Arduino. There's a few systems that do things like this, though not to that level of precision, and those are lab-based proof of concepts more than working systems. Ultrasonic triangulation might be your best bet fi you can lower the precision requirements a notch or two, but even that's complex AF.

    @chrisl I don't know my setup or requriments, except it need be small, have 4 wheels and have a precision about 5+- cm. That's all I need.
