Department of Mechanical Engineering 2 017 Design of Electromechanical Robotic Systems Fall 2009 Lab 3 GPS and Data Logging 1 Overview The goal of this lab is to learn how to acquire log and process GPS data using the Arduino microcontroller board and the GPS logger shield You will also learn how to interpret the GPS string process the data in MATLAB and to view the data on a map program We will spend the last half hour of the lab for project discussion 2 Assemble the GPS Logger Shield We ask each group to assemble a GPS logger shield x x x x x Grab a soldering iron and solder Power the soldering iron and set the temperature dial to 4 Follow the on line instructions on http www ladyada net make gpsshield solder html to assemble the board Also solder the 9v battery holder Take your time Don t rush Soldering guidelines x x x x x x x x x Wear safety glasses when soldering Do not touch a hot iron Never leave your iron turned on while unattended Never set the soldering iron down on anything other than an iron stand Use needle nose pliers heat resistant gloves or a third hand tool to hold small pieces Practice a few times if you have not done soldering recently Do not use excess amount of solder Double check the part you want to solder before you actually do it When done soldering tinning the iron is required to protect the tip from oxidation thereby dramatically increasing its life 3 GPS Experiments Download and unzip NewSoftSerial 18 02 09 zip and AF SDLog v2 zip from http www ladyada net make gpsshield download html Put the above two unzipped folders in your C Arduino hardware libraries folder Download the file lab3files zip from the course website and unzip to your lab3 folder 2 017 Fall 2009 1 Department of Mechanical Engineering The files are described below o GPStest RMC pde Arduino code by ladyada to test the serial communication with a PC o GPSLogger v3 pde Arduino code by ladyada to record GPS data on an SD card o ReadNMEA m A MATLAB function to read a recorded
