If you know how many steps from the bedroom, to the kitchen, why bother to
open your eyes at all?

Or do you use both? Turn on lights to be able to see?

Same thing. There are places one system type doesn't work. So you hedge your
bets by integrating multiple types of systems as backups. 

Sensor fusion. It's nature's way.
