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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
