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

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 ...

Real Time GPS Tracker with Integrated Google Maps

This project describes how you can build a mobile real time GPS tracker with integrated Google Maps. I began this project mainly to see if I can integrate all the different pieces of hardware and software to make a workable solution, and it took some time, but finally when everything was said and done, it looked pretty cool. I tore down everything and rebuilt it from scratch, making detailed notes and docum ...

Arduino based high-altitude balloon tracker

One of the coolest projects I have done so-far with my kids is a "near-space" balloon. That's not quite into space itself (100Km+) but so high that the sky looks black and you can start to see the curvature of the earth below you. In order to take this kind of photo you need to send a camera up to the stratosphere. Ours went 38Km (124,000 feet) straight up. This is easy enough: you attach it to a massive ba ...

Arduino Peak Power Tracker Solar Charger

This project is an update of my original Peak Power Tracker Battery Charger Project. It is designed to control a 12V solar panel charging a 12V lead acid battery. The updated version of this project uses the Arduino Duemilanove development board (from www.sparkfun.com) as the basis for the project. Then I used the Arduino Protoshield Kit (also from www.sparkfun.com) to contruct the charging circuit and mate ...

Real-Time Arduino GPS Tracker with iPhone app

[INTRO] This past semester, I decided to build a GPS receiver with an iPhone app that tracks it for my semester project. Here is a step-by-step tutorial to show you how you can build your own. [OVERVIEW] Architecture of my Real-Time GPS Tracker project. I’ll be using the diagram above to explain how the project is put together. Starting from the satellite at the top of the diagram, the GPS module receives G ...

Arduino Solar Tracker

What is does: It searches for the brightest light source like the sun. Step 1: How it works How it works: I'd made a sensor of 4 LDRs with sheets between them The withe stips are the LDRs   When the stick on top is righted to the sun or the brightest point the four LDRs get the same amount of light on them. Example1 when the light is left on top: right-top, right-down, left-down are in the shadow and left-t ...
