GPS Projects for #backtoschool
If you are an educator, or a student who is learning how to use an Arduino or other basic microcontroller, learning how to use a GPS module is a great way to go from blinking LEDs to interacting with the outside world. GPS modules are remarkably easy to use, and they open the door for many neat projects. Here are just a few projects to inspire you:
Wonder if you’re giving your dog the exercise she needs? Like electronics? Make your own GPS dog collar!
Build a GPS enabled electronics bracer.
Make a tiny GPS tracker inside of a mini Altoids tin.
Automatically set the time on your clock by adding a GPS module!
