Interfacing GPS Module with PIC Microcontroller

GPS is the short-form of Global Positioning System. It is a system which provide accurate Altitude, Latitude, Longitude, UTC time and many more information, which are taken from 2, 3, 4 or more satellite. To read data from GPS, we need some Microcontroller and we already interfaced GPS with Arduino and with Raspberry Pi. We have selected G7020 GPS module which is made by U-blox. We will receive Longitude an ...

2018 WILL MARK A MILESTONE IN GPS TECHNOLOGY WITH 30-CENTIMETER ACCURACY

You’re in a crowded street with many high buildings around you and you find your car position on Google maps is wrong. That’s usual, right? This is caused from (fake/distorted) GPS signals reflected from the high buildings around you which make your GPS receiver do some wrong calculations. Even with no wrong calculations, the current GPS accuracy is about 5 meters, but this is going to change in next year 2 ...

Vehicle Tracking System Through GPS-GSM Modules

The project is based on a Gsm/Gps/Gprs. Its main function is to detect a illegal entry and communicate its own geographical position using, on the choice, the cellular phone reference system or the GPS. I use the recent product by SIMCOM - SIM908 which operate on 5 - 12 volt dc supply, which makes it work on wide-range dc power supply... Well i still believe that i can burn a code of 21kb into program memor ...
