Need help with Follow Bot Answered

I'm working on a bot that I would like to follow me around. It's going to be bluetooth controlled. Looking for advice on how to make it follow the bluetooth device it's paired to, or another device like a RFID tag. Any help is appreciated.

Won't work with Bluetooth or RFID. Now i've seen an episode of the Ben Heck Show on Element 14 where he made a motorized bit of luggage that followed him using an ultrasonic sensor. He had to wear a sensor on his belt for it to follow him. Look for that episode on youtube and you may find it.

Maybe reflective tape on the back of your shoes, and an infra-red emitter/receiver on the bot?

i dont know much about bluetooth specifically, but i imagine you need a very directional antenna.
