Lora Based GPS Tracker using Arduino and LoRa Shield
In this tutorial we will build GPS tracking system using LoRa, the system will consist of a Transmitter which will read the location information from the NEO-6M GPS module and transmit it wireless over Lora. The receiver part will receive the information and display it on a 16×2 LCD display.

How to track Location with NodeMCU using Google Geolocation API

Have you ever thought of getting your device’s location without using any GPS hardware? Sounds interesting!! Yes it is possible to get the location coordinates just using NodeMCU ESP board without any extra hardware. Here we will use ESP12E board to get live co-ordinates of our location. This becomes possible because of Google’s Geolocation API. So let’s see how this Geolocation API works and how we are able to get the location using this.

Interface GPS Module with PIC Microcontroller

We are going to use G7020 GPS module which is made by U-blox. We will receive Longitude and latitude of a particular position from satellite and will display the same on a 16×2 Character LCD. So here we will interface GPS with PIC16F877A microcontroller by microchip.

Raspberry Pi GPS Interfacing

With the amount of power packed by the Raspberry Pi, it certainly will be quite awesome to build GPS based projects with the same cheap GPS modules and that is the focus of this post. Today in this project we will Interface GPS module with Raspberry Pi 3.

The goal of this project is to collect location data (longitude and latitude) via UART from a GPS module and display them on a 16×2 LCD, so if you are not familiar with the way the 16×2 LCD works with the Raspberry Pi, this is another great opportunity to learn.

Arduino Based Vehicle Accident Alert System using GPS, GSM and Accelerometer
Here in this project, we are going to build a Arduino based vehicle accident alert system using GPS, GSM and accelerometer. Accelerometer detects the sudden change in the axes of vehicle and GSM module sends the alert message on your Mobile Phone with the location of the accident. Location of accident is sent in the form of Google Map link, derived from the latitude and longitude from GPS module. The Message also contains the speed of vehicle in knots. See the Demo Video at the end. This Vehicle Accident alert project can also be used as a Tracking System and much more, by just making few changes in hardware and software.
