Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and also Arduino. I come from a very extensive software background and I'm just starting to dip my feet into hardware development.
I'm attempting to find the best way to send POST or GET data through http and/or https from an arduino. I'd like to be able to send data while the device is moving (For example, in a vehicle).
The 2 options I've found don't really seem practical, although they're seeming to be the only options. The first would be to utilize a wifi shield and attempt to connect and send data through any nearby network when available.
The other option I've found is using the 3G/GPRS shield (http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/3g-gprs-shield-for-arduino-3g-gps.html
) along with a sim card. I really dislike this option for the simple fact that it's not easily scalable when producing multiple devices. Plus, the cost of the 3G shield isn't too attractive from a production standpoint.
Any other ideas or suggestions as to what the best approach would be? In the end, I'd like to be able to produce a device that has the requirements listed above for under or around $100.
