Design your own raspberry pi based GPS tracker using Lora Radio Off-grid GPS (racer) tracker client and also Server. one of the best Raspberry Pi project based on wireless technologies.
There are many GPS tracker client/server combinations already in public domain, but these generally rely on a mobile internet connection (via GPRS/3G for example) to report competitor positions back to the tracking server. For tracking competitors in race segments where mobile data coverage is not available, some of the more elegant existing solutions will cache the device position until mobile coverage is available again, then update the server with the backlog of track logs.
This approach has a few downsides for my application:
- each tracker device must have a GSM/GPRS/3G modem, SIM and data contract
- each tracker needs mobile data coverage at SOME point, in order to upload cached tracks
- the tracker server application needs an internet connection to receive position updates and serve up map tiles.
- people wishing to track devices must have an internet connection to view the tracker server portal.
LiPo powered GPS + LoRa radio + microcontroller unit to be mounted on bike/wristband.
