I recently wrote a tutorial titled, Configuring Visual Studio Code for Arduino Development, because I’ve been exploring the Internet of Things (IoT). Up until recently I’ve only had hands on experience with Raspberry Pi, but I’ve been expanding my knowledge with Arduino.
I have an Arduino Uno and a GPS module, so I thought it’d be a good idea to demonstrate how to use the two together.
In this tutorial we’re going to see how to monitor a NEO 6M GPS module connected to an Arduino using a few lines of very simple code.Read More
I get a particular set of questions quite a bit on my blog and other social media outlets. One of these questions includes how to use geolocation features such as GPS tracking within a NativeScript mobile application for iOS and Android. Many people want to be able to gather location information and in many cases use this information for mapping.
So what does it take to make use of the device GPS hardware for location tracking?
We’re going to see how to create a mobile application for Android and iOS using NativeScript and Angular that makes use of geolocation in a few different ways.Read More
Over the past few years I’ve become dependent on wearable technology, a compliment to my smart phones. For the past year I’ve been using a Pebble Time smartwatch, but since Pebble recently sold out to Fitbit and shutdown shop, I was left looking for a replacement to my soon to be disabled smartwatch. This lead me to the Samsung Gear Fit 2 smart device.
There were certain criteria that had to be met, in my mind, in order to find an acceptable replacement to the Pebble that I knew and loved. I’m going to evaluate the Gear Fit 2 and see how it stacks up to comparable devices that exist.Read More
