Making your own drone with GNSS click
Posted by Lana Vulic on 27 March 2017 01:53 PM

A project on hackster.io uses GNSS click to build a semi-autonomous drone. The click plays its part as a GPS receiver.

Read the whole tutorial to see the necessary code, GPS and IMU sensors wiring and more.

The next installment of this tutorial will teach you how to add motor control to the device so that the drone can take flight and fulfill its purpose.

You can start with the video, to see the half-done drone in action. Don’t expect to see it flying yet, it still needs a motor. But what you can see is GNSS click locating the device on google maps.

Better coverage with both GPS and GLONASS satellites

GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo are the three main parts of the GNSS system. At any time there are six to twelve satellites above the horizon that can be used to calculate a position. A GNSS receiver needs at least four satellites to get the necessary information: latitude, longitude, and altitude. The simple conclusion being that the more satellites there are, the more accurate the results will be.

The latest GPS satellite in orbit weighs around 1,400kg. That is the weight of an average midsized car. Imagine a Toyota Prius moving through space, at the speed of several kilometers per second.

GNSS click

GNSS click carries the L86 module from Quectel, with an integrated patch antenna. It has a UART interface and runs on a 3.3V power supply.

With its ultra low power consumption of 20mA in tracking mode, it fits the IoT field like a glove.

For more information on the GNSS click, see the product page.

You can also take a look at the GSM/GNSS 2 click if you want to add mobile connectivity to your project as well.

Yours Sincerely,

GSM/GNSS 2 click — asset tracking, mobile communication and more
Posted by Lana Vulic on 24 March 2017 04:50 PM

The two-month climbing season for Mount Everest starts in late March. Why would you want to know this? Well, the Nepalese government is having a trial experiment and issuing GPS tracking devices to climbers this year.

For the first time in history, there will be bullet-proof evidence that someone has actually climbed the Everest. If you plan to climb the world’s tallest mountain, you can take our new click with you – GSM/GNSS 2 click – maybe it will be more accurate than Nepal’s GPS tracking devices.

GSM/GNSS 2 click

GSM/GNSS 2 click carries SIM868 quad-band GSM/GPRS module. SIM868 is integrated with a high-performance GSM/GPRS engine and a GNSS engine.

The module is designed with power saving technique so that the current consumption is as low as 0.65mA in sleep mode.

For more information about the click see the product page.

Yours Sincerely,

New Hexiwear demo with GSM/GNSS click
Posted by Lana Vulic on 02 March 2017 04:54 PM

The new Hexiwear demo with GSM/GNSS click tells you Hexiwear’s exact location in an SMS.

GPS location with Hexiwear

Once you turn Hexiwear on, there will be a few pre-written messages you can choose from, like “call the doctor” or “I need your help”. For example, an elderly person with health problems could ask for help this way.

Just take your phone with you, and you’ll get an SMS with the precise information about the location of your elderly parents, or your child.

First, you will receive a link in the SMS. Click on the link and it will take you to a spot on google maps. It’s as easy as that. Anyone can use it.

You can even remind someone to go to the grocery store, and send “buy bread and milk”.

GSM/GNSS click

Combine the power of GSM, GNSS (GPS and GLONASS), and Bluetooth and what you get is the GSM/GNSS click. The click carries the MC60 quad-band module from Quectel.

For more information on GSM/GNSS click take a look at the product page.
