By the end of this tutorial you will be able to access your Raspberry Pi 3 as Wi-Fi Hotpot. Before getting started please make sure that your module is ppp Internet connected. If not please follow the steps from tutorial 3.
In this tutorial we will learn how to get GPS data using 3G, 4G/LTE shield.
GPS(Global Positioning System) also known as NavStar indicates the position of an individual on the earth. The Satellites orbiting around the earth sends precise details of their positions at a regular interval of time. Once information are received by a GPS receiver, a GPS receiver can pinpoint the location.
There are also navigation systems which support in their in specific regions like GLONASS provided in Russia.
For this tutorial we will need
a. Raspberry Pi
b. 3G, 4G/LTE Shield
c. 3G, 4G/LTE module (for 3G UC20 and for 4G EC25 is used)
d. PCB Mobile Antenna (2x)
e. GPS Antenna
Here it goes
Previously we have used GPRS shield to establish internet connection. Now we will use 3G, 4G/LTE shield for PPP internet connection. In order to make a 3G and 4G connection we will need to use Quectel UC20 and Quectel EC25 modules respectively.
As this tutorial is for 4G PPP Internet connection, we will use Quectel EC25, which is a series of LTE category 4 module optimized specially for M2M, IoT and multimedia applications. Due to rich set of protocols, industry-standard interfaces and abundant functionalities extend the applicability of the module ti a wide range of M2M and IoT applications such as industrial router, industrial PDA, rugged tablet PC, video surveillance and digital signage.
Sixfab GSM/GPRS Shield is using Quectel M66 GSM/GPRS module. It bears the optimal performance in SMS, Data transmission and audio service. Due to the small size(equal to size of raspberry pi zero) it is easily embeddable in any project like video streamer, establishing Internet connection, security systems, tracking system etc.
Hello, welcome our new blog! We are hardworking on all posts and we will upload more as soon as possible. Check out here for frequent updates.
Original Raspbian Jessie kernel doesn’t support Quectel EC25/UC20 modules, then we fixed kernel, you can replace your module files with new files.
Sixfab 3G/LTE Shields provides very high speed internet connection. Use Raspberry Pi camera and you can make live stream to Youtube and Facebook. You can use following transactions for work.
Connect internet over Mobile and send tweets with image and text. You can use following transactions for work.
Anywhere you can connect to another nodes simply. Connect Xbee shield to Raspberry Pi and use ds18b20 sensor to log temperature information.
