DIY Location Tracker using GSM SIM800 and Arduino
With driver-less cars carrying passengers and Trucks carrying valuable cargo, it brings in the need for a Fleet Management system in which we need to track them to know their location and ensure if they are at the right place at the right time. Generally a GPS Module is used for any sort of location tracking but here in this tutorial we will use GSM SIM800 module to build a simple Location tracking system with Arduino. This GPRS tracking system compromises the GSM modem and the microcontroller (Arduino) and is fabricated on a PCB from PCBGOGO. It works in such a way that when a phone call is made to the GSM module, the module will check the location and sends it back as a text message with Google map link to the number from which the phone call is made. This link when opened on phone will pin the location of modem on Google Maps. Sounds Interesting enough!!?
