Wifi tracking stage light

Hi All:
I am considering a project which purports to use RFID wifi transmission data to track a person on a stage for a smart stage light (DMX) to auto track.

I am not clear on how to access the position data from the wifi transmisssion. Also, I need to figure out the DMX protocol to instruct the light to move. thsi is a start point. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DMX512

My plan is to access this data, compute from cartesian to polar coords and then convert to the DMX protocol to instruct the Fixture to aim at the targeted person.

Any thoughts?
