GPS real time tracker using Arduio mega

In this tutorial, we are going to explain in detail how we implement a GPS real time tracker using Arduio mega.

Design target:

If you ring the real time GPS tracker, the real time tracker won't answer your call, instead it will send back a SMS with the location time stamped.

Hardware Needed:

  1. Arduino Mega:

  1. SM5100B 4-band GSM/GPRS module and eval board:

Cellular antenna:

  1. GPS module:

Full hardware picture:

Serial port 0 of arduio mega is the USB port, and used to print out the debug information to the PC. Serial port 1 of arduio mega is connected to GPS module. Serial port 2 of arduino mega is connected to SM5100B GSM/GPRS module.

Will this work with any version of the Atmel / Arduino combo or just the mega?

Cheers :D
