In this work, the experimental evaluation of the distance estimation variance is executed for received signal strength based visible light positioning. It is shown that based on the signal to noise ratio at the matched filter output, an accurate determination of the precision is achieved. In order to suppressed ambient light which contains no information regarding the distance between the LED and the receiver, matched filtering with the dc-balanced part of the transmitted signal is required. As a consequence, the theoretical lower bound for the precision can not be achieved.
