Hi, I have bought the SIM5218 3G and GPS sheild along with the Arduino MEGA board. The idea is to have sensors feed into the Ardunio, such as accelerometers and temperature sensors, and feed back the responses while on the go to my computer in my room. I'm in uncharted territory here, having only ever worked with servos and USB interface. How do i receive the data on my laptop?
How I imagine the code working... Collect sensor and GPS data, create a single string. "StartByte/Computer address(would an IP address be enough?)/Data/Checksum/Endbyte" store on SD card Send via 3G receive a confirmation string If not what expected, resend else repeat 5 seconds later
How do i find out the (correct)address of the computer and 3Gmodule. What program/interface should/could i use on the computer? what if i send it to a 3g tablet?
some example code would be useful, even if its just sections I can piece together. Thanks, -LeDono
