Arduino-based GPS/GLONASS module links to Googlemaps
An Arduino-based GPS/GLONASS vehicle tracker developed by Tigal is on the Indiegogo crowd-funding website.
This is the second version of the firm’s OpenTracker system, which is an open source commercial grade GPS/GLONASS vehicle tracker that comes with a free web interface for tracking it on Googlemaps or OpenStreetMaps.
Designed for the tracking of single vehicles or larger fleets simultaneously, the system can be used to track the location, speed, altitude, heading, and address of the vehicle as well as save logs of location data for later use. With additional sensors it is also possible to track humidity, temperature and other parameters when desired.
The Arduino Due compatible module has an Atmel SAM3A8C ARM controller, a Quectel M95 GSM/GPRS modem and a Quectel L76 GPS/GLONASS module with Assisted GPS and CANbus.
The OpenTracker v2 will be available as a complete bundle including the Board, High-Quality Aluminum Enclosure, Power and Programming Cable as well as a GSM/GPS Antenna, or as a standalone board for those interested in using the board as an enhanced Arduino Due.Tags: Arduino, ARM, Atmel, GPS
