Learn how to build a low-cost (and low-code) Cellular + GPS enabled IoT asset tracker that can span the entire globe.Director of Developer Relations
One of the more intriguing use cases to be born out of the IoT is the ability to actively monitor the location and condition of, well, anything. Whether you are monitoring the temperature, humidity, and fall detection of a critical vaccine shipment, or tracking your location on a cross-country road trip, using off-the-shelf sensors with cellular and GPS modules has made asset tracking easier than ever.
But what if you don’t know where to start? Or what if you don’t want to invest serious 💰💰💰 in a fully decked-out tracker? Well, have I got a tutorial for you!
I built a low-cost (< $100 USD) cellular- and GPS-enabled tracking system and sent it, literally, around the world to (almost) every continent. I tracked its location with a cloud-based dashboard and even tweaked some settings on the tracker itself after I had sent it on its way.
In this Hackster project, I dive into the hardware, software, and services used to monitor its amazing journey around the globe 🌍, including:
