Smartphone Controlled Atomic Weather Station

This project combines Atomic Time keeping with local weather station, and additional cool projects using Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Introduction I was looking for a cool way to use the features of the Adafruit GPS module for a practical purpose, and Tony DiCola's Arduino GPS Clock inspired me to create a GPS controlled atomic clock, with the addition of a weather station. What we did The first step is to wir ...

Review & Teardown of a cheap GPS Jammer

Generally, “jammers” — which are also commonly called signal blockers, GPS jammers, cell phone jammers, wifi jammers, etc. are radio frequency transmitters that are designed to block, jam, or otherwise interfere with radio communications. A jammer can block radio communications on devices that operates on a given radio frequencies within its range (i.e., within a certain distance of the jammer) by emitting ...

Real Time Monitoring Of Crop Health using Intel Edison

Millions of farmers in the world each year face loss of their crop. Its mainly due to crop disease or environmental problems like nature of soil (pH), poor quality of air, and excessive or very low moisture in soil. To get cure from these problems, farmers need to know the fertilizer according to the condition of the soil and also the amount of water needed everyday for his crop with respect to the temperat ...

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 ...

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 ...
