wanted to make a human following suitcase, what's the best i could do to make this human following suitcase
1) IR Sensor
or what exactly is the best possible way of making this, any hints would be appreciated

That sounds like a super cool project 😊
I can imagine this to come with quite a few challenges though.
- You may need Ultrasonic sensors to make sure the suitcase can see its environment so it won't bump into anything.
- You'll need something the human carries and the suitcase can follow. IR is not suitable for that I suspect. Bluetooth may work. Look at this project, they do use Bluetooth as well to have a cooler follow a human (YouTube video - Code used).
Hope this helps you get started 😎

@hans i've seen this cooler stuff it's awesome, but it requires GPS and indoors where my project is supposed to work within an airport for closed area, GPS is a big big problem, any idea on BLE/Beacons ?

I did find this project, but somehow doubt it will work properly when being in a crowded environment. I could be wrong though.
I suspect, I could be wrong, that finding "direction" with Bluetooth may be a challenge and harder (at short distance) than one would think.
I did find some similar projects though, like this one or even better this one YouTube discussing the details of their design.
I have no experience in this particular type of application as you can see.
