Wireless GPS Project

at 5:11 am. Filed under Computer Hacks, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Youtube user KDG86 has made quite a few interesting projects. This Wireless GPS Project is nice and simple but have lots of cool possibilities. He is using a GPS module that outputs RS-232, this signal is connected to a wireless transmitter. A receiver is then used to get the data into a computer. Since it is RS-232 all you need is a terminal program to have a look. He then takes some of the raw data and with one copy and paste his exact location is zoomed into by Google Earth.

Instead of a computer I would feed it into a microcontroller and have it warn me when I am coming close to one of the red light cameras that seem to be everywhere where I live. 🙁

    Alan: You need to look into Trapster–a service that you run on your mobile phone that will alert you when you are coming up on a traffic camera.

    I don’t work for them, BTW. 😛

    I assume it’s all legal but high intensity IR does thwart some cameras. A clear plastic cover direct the IR and will look like something reflecting off of it.

    Hi, I have used a BT GPS (the kind you would use for pocket PC) for a project I finished recently. The nice thing is that it maps back on the PC equipped with BT dongle simply as another RS-232. Getting hold of the GPRMC sentences becomes then much simpler.
    It might not sound as challenging as building your own wireless T/R but it is worth considering.
