15. Movement and Location > Sending GPS Data

Sending GPS Data

So far in this chapter, GPS and locational data has been either saved or sent over the serial port to a listening computer. There are some other options for sending data, each of which has its own advantages and limitations.

There is an interesting module that Libelium developed for allowing an Arduino to send SMS data and make phone calls, provided that you connect a valid SIM card for a phone network that has receivers within range. It includes the HiLo SAGEM communication module that handles the communication with the SIM card and Arduino, but you need to provide a working SIM and an antenna for the communication module to use to make calls. Figure 15-4 shows the Libelium GPRS shield and its schematic.
