Piksi : The RTK GPS Receiver by Swift Navigation Inc. We’ve had a lot of interest in the Piksi RTK system from professionals in the GIS and mapping fields, but our RTK Kit alone was not enough to fulfill this need.

Piksi : The RTK GPS Receiver by Swift Navigation Inc.

To use Piksi in these settings, you need a durable, integrated solution - one that can be turned on with the flick of a switch, and is accompanied by an easy, intuitive user interface. So, we have added a new reward, a ruggedized version of our RTK Kit containing two Piksi receivers each fully assembled with an enclosure, a Bluetooth module, an SD card slot, an integrated radio link, and 10 hours of rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries. We’ll also be releasing data collection apps for Android and iOS that interface with Piksi over Bluetooth; you’ll be able to take measurements, plot points on your smartphone’s map, and for professionals, export to common formats to integrate into your standard mapping workflow - all with the 4 centimeter accuracy of the Piksi RTK system.

Some possible applications: Piksi Technical Specs: Open Source Tracking Device by DSS Circuits. My project is an Open Source tracking device based on the Arduino platform.

Open Source Tracking Device by DSS Circuits

A few years ago we had a bad ice storm here in Massachusetts and we lost power for several days. Well during the power outage my brother-in-law's house was robbed and one of the items stolen was my nephews' PS3. As is usually the case, none of the items were ever recovered. I talked to a couple of law enforcement personnel and found out that gaming consoles were one of the most common things stolen from homes. That's when I came up with the idea to build a tracking device and place it inside a gaming console. The idea was that if your house got robbed, there's a good chance your fake video game console would be among the list of stolen items.

That's when I decided to condense the project down into a single board. The board contains everything you'd need or want in a tracking device. Step 2: The tracking device verifies the security code and executes the given command code. Thanks for your support! Shrunk down an Arduino to the size of a finger-tip! by Open Source RF. RFduino: A finger-tip sized, Arduino compatible, wireless enabled microcontroller, low cost enough to leave in all of your projects!

Shrunk down an Arduino to the size of a finger-tip! by Open Source RF

The RFduino has Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy built-in, which enables it to wirelessly talk to any smartphone that has Bluetooth 4.0. Currently we have several open source apps built for the iPhone which were used in our demos. Open source Android apps are next. The RFduino has a Nordic 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor, so it has more power then the UNO, however it still runs the same, simple Arduino code the UNO runs, so there is no need to learn any new programming language or environment. Your standard Arduino sketches run on the RFduino. The RFduino GPIO lines all support, Digital IO, Analog ADC, SPI, I2C, UART and PWM. The RFduino is similar to the Arduino UNO or DUE, except the RFduino is a fraction of the cost and size, in addition has wireless smartphone connectivity built-in!

NavSpark: Arduino Compatible with GPS GNSS Receiver

NavSpark 点名时间上中文說明: NavSpark is a small, powerful, breadboard-friendly, 32bit development board that is Arduino compatible, with a world class GPS receiver as on-board peripheral, and under $15. There is also NavSpark-BD, a variant model having world-class GPS/Beidou receiver as on-board peripheral, that enables you to adopt new GPS/Beidou satellite navigation technology when Broadcom Qualcomm just recently came out with solution supporting Beidou to their tier-1 smartphone customers like Apple and Samsung. NavSpark puts leading edge satellite navigation technology in the hands of the makers. Up until now, adding GPS to an Arduino requires additional GPS shield, which adds cost and size. We have been developing GPS related products for some years. . · GPS on board · Breadboard compatible 1. 2. 3. 4.
