Robot Integration Engineering a GPS Module with the Arduino

In this chapter, we will be discussing GPS and adding it to the customer's robot we built in the previous chapter. You can use GPS for many things, such as tracking a robot or selecting where you want your robot to be. The customer wants to do just that by sending the GPS location of the robot to a microSD card and logging it to a text file. They want to send a separate command to the robot in order to get the latitude and longitude data from GPS.

Throughout this chapter, we will be using a protocol called NMEA. This protocol is used to communicate important GPS-related information. We will also discuss two new libraries. They are TinyGPS (thanks to Mikal Hart: http://arduiniana.org/libraries/tinygps/ ...
