Sixfab NB-IoT EVB. with Ultrasonic Sensor

Sixfab NB-IoT is another member of our Nb-IoT Shield family. This can be connected either with USB or you may also use any micro controller(Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi etc. ). For this tutorial we are going to use Raspberry Pi. Here we will be sending data obtained by our Raspberry Pi from Ultrasonic Waterproof Range Finder(JSN-SR04T-2.0) and send this data over UDP.

Before you get started make sure you have done your router configuration as mentioned in previous tutorial step 1-10.

GPS Tracker with 3G, 4G/LTE shield

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
