GPS Belt uses Flora and Fona #WearableWednesday
Neat project from Avery Grimshaw on
This video demonstrates the design and function of a project created in ENGR 122 at Louisiana Tech University (as a part of the Living With the Lab Freshman Engineering Series). The product is a GPS trackable belt that logs location coordinates to Adafruit IO, then displays them on a map. The product utilizes an Adafruit Flora Microcontroller, a FONA 808 GPS/GSM Module, 2 momentary switches, and a 3.7V Li-Po battery.
