“With U Smart Sole” DIY GPS Embedded Smart Shoe Sole #MITBetterWorld

What do you do when someone is chasing you or you are lost? Cross your fingers? Don't. When you are in trouble, just cross your feet [in a special way] and your location is sent to your family members. Wait there's more! Even the family can get your location just by calling the shoe. When you call the SIM in the shoe, the shoe automatically hangs up the call and reverts back its cur ...

Intro to GPS With Microcontrollers

https://youtu.be/_Qog6ofGD5Y Once the purview of strictly military operations, GPS has become a regular part of modern living and in relatively short time! Who wouldn't want want to know when and where they are anywhere on the planet? It's a science fiction dream brought into reality, one now so woven into our lives it seems almost trivial. The demand for precise positional data built into planes, ships, ca ...

GPS Clock using Arduino

Global positioning system (GPS) synchronised clocks give accurate time. These clocks are universal and commonly used at railway stations, bus stands and airports. These are widely used for military purposes too. Here we describe a GPS clock based on Arduino Uno R3—an AVR ATmega328-based microcontroller board with six analogue inputs pins and 14 digital input/output (I/O) pins. The microcontroller has 32kB I ...

Arduino GPS Clock

There are many GPS satellites around the Earth which are used to provide the exact location of any place. Along with the location coordinates (Latitude and Longitude), it also provide other data like time, date, altitude, direction tracking angle etc. We have already learned to read this GPS data from Satellite using Arduino. So we are going to make a GPS clock using the ‘Time and Date’ data from the GPS sa ...
