The Miniaturization of GPS Systems

Positioning is an increasingly important part of an embedded design as more and more devices become mobile. Adding this capability into equipment that has to be smaller, lighter and have longer battery life is a major challenge. At the same time there are the challenges of implementing an effective wireless design with high performance and low power, while meeting the requirements of the project timeline an ...

GPS Clock Assembly, Part III

Pinoco was hit with the holiday rush, so it took a few extra weeks to get my new batch of laser cut acrylic. I nailed it this time. Right away I could tell the engraving was perfect. I even spaced out the holes for the speaker just a hair. The holes on the last one were so close together, that they weren't separated by more than a hair of plastic. The arrows came out great too. I contemplated spray painting ...

GPS and GSM based Vehicle Tracking System Using Arduino

This circuit is designed for tracking the location of vehicles. Most oftracking systems are made by using GPS. This is very simple and cheap. Tracking systems are mostly used by fleet operators for tracking a vehicle location, routing and others. This is a very good method for preventing our vehicles from stolen. This tracking system sends us the geographical coordinates and by using these coordinates we ca ...

Runner’s GPS build

This project is to build a portable GPS geared towards runners (well, me and what I think a runner wants a GPS thingy for). It's sponsored by the University of Minnesota's ECE Envision Fund. The hardware is basically complete, and the software is functional, if not polished. This is what the main screen looks like while tracking, with another image to show scale (though you can also reference the microSD ca ...

UART in GPS navigation system

With the rapid development of GPS (Global Positioning System) techniques, GPS gets wider application in many fields. GPS has features such as high precision, global coverage, convenience, high quality, and low cost. Recently, the use of GPS extends speedily from military to civilian applications such as automobile navigation systems which combine the GPS system, e-map, and wireless network. GPS is getting p ...

How to Interface GPS with Arduino

Every single location in the entire globe can be specified in terms of geographical coordinates. The geographical coordinate is a system which specifies any given location on the earth surface as latitude and longitude. There are devices which can read the geographical coordinates of a place with the help of the signals received from a number of satellites orbiting the earth. The system of satellites which ...

Arduino GPS Clock usign arduino

I had a Holux M-1000B Bluetooth GPS module that was just gathering dust in my room. I had bought it from DealExtreme back in the days when I had GPS-less (but external GPS capable) Nokia E51. Upgrading to a Nokia E52 has since made this receiver redundant. However, since getting an Arduino, and being put off by the price of GPS shields for them, I decided to use the GPS receiver I already have. Once the rec ...

GPS Tracker for Alzheimer’s Patients

First a thank you to my Team members Sean Halloran and Gvozden Suvajlo, they came up with this idea and executed it, this project would not be possible without their ideas and skills. The GPS tracking device is composed of a micro controller, GPS module, cell module, and batteries all housed in a 3D printed case. The micro controller is programmed to communicate with both the cell module and GPS module. Whe ...

CarTracker – GPS Car locator

Have you come out of a store and said to yourself, where did I park my car? Well, I have. Now, there are a lot of smartphone applications that can help you locate your car but smartphones are expensive. So this Lazy Old Geek (L.O.G.) decided to make my own. HowItWorks: When you park your car, you press the button, car tracker calculates the car location GPS coordinates and stores them in EEPROM so the car t ...
