New release: Geolocation Tracker (GPRS + GPS) over Arduino and Raspberry PiJune 19, 2013

The new shield designed for Arduino and Raspberry Pi integrates the SIM908 module which counts with both GPRS and GPS technologies what allows to easily perform realtime tracking applications. The idea is simple: read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them by using a HTTP request to a web server. Then use a browser to load the PHP webpage which uses Google Maps to show the location in realtime.

All the code including the PHP scripts and the Arduino program can be downloaded and it has been released with an open source license.

You can find a detailed Tutorial to know how to use the new GPRS+GPS Quadband Module for Arduino/Raspberry Pi (SIM908) to track your vehicle with both platforms and show it in Google Maps with our examples.

Note: If you are interested in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)M2M and the Internet of Things (IoT) projects check our new open source sensor platform: Waspmote which counts with more than 60 sensors available to use and a low consumption mode of just 0.07uA to ensure years of battery life.
