Description

GPS Module for Arduino is a small electronic circuit that allows to connect to your Arduino board to get position and altitude, as well as speed, date and time on UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). Internal GPS antenna is not included. It is sold as an optional and it is required to use the module.

The assembled module is Vincotech A1080-B that uses the standard NMEA and SIRF III protocols (www.nmea.org) to transmit the position data via serial port.

GPS module for Arduino is a perfect complement for developing geolocalization applications.

It can be used with many navigation NMEA compatible software

IMPORTANT! Handle with care the internal antenna. It's fragile. To get a correct fixation with the satellites, please cover the module with a plastic box

The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks

Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.

It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.

If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
