[Paul] has put together an insanely little yet powerful tracker for tracking all the things. The USB TinyTracker is a gadget that bundles a 48MHz processor, 2G modem, GPS receiver, 9DOF movement sensor, barometer, microphone, as well as micro-SD slot for data storage. He handled to get everything to in shape into a USB thumb drive enclosure, implying that you can program it nevertheless you want in the Arduino IDE, then plug it into any type of USB port as well as let it run. This allows things like remote monitoring, possession tracking, as well as all type of spy-like activity.
One of the most unusual elements of his project, though, is this line: “Everything came together extremely well as well as the height of parts as well as PCBs is precisely as I planned.” [Paul] had chosen out an enclosure that was only expected to in shape a single PCB, however with some cautious calculations, as well as picky element selection, he handled to in shape whatever onto two 2-layer boards that snap together with a connector as well as in shape inside the enclosure.
We’ve complied with [Paul’s] development on this job with an earlier iteration of his GSM GPS Tracker, which utilized a Teensy as well as in shape snugly into a handlebar, however this is much much more versatile.
