Chapter 11. Using a GPS Device with Arduino

You've got quite a set of tools now to build amazing robots. One part that is not yet covered, however, is giving your robot an idea of where it is in the world. This is particularly useful for autonomous robots that might have to travel long distances. Keeping track of its location would be useful, so you can not only know where your robot is, but also plan where it should go. In this chapter, you'll learn the following:

  • How to connect a GPS device with Arduino using the I2C bus

  • How to connect GPS capability using an Arduino shield

Let's get started with a brief GPS tutorial.
