Smart GPS sensor for NXT and EV3
Your outdoor robots now know exactly where they are and where they are heading!DISCONTINUED ARTICLE.
The dGPS sensors can provide the following data to your Lego Mindstorms NXT robot: Latitude, Longitude, time, speed and heading. The module also has a microcontroller able to perform positioning related calculations (e.g. target coordinates,…). The dGPS sensor has simply to be plugged to one of the sensor ports of your NXT brick and can be programmed using NXT-G, RobotC, NXC and Lejos.

Projects ideas with the dGPS sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT
Here are some projects ideas with the dGPS sensor for NXT:
- Datalogguer: Saving the GPS data during a time interval and then exporting them to Google Maps or Google Earth.
- GPS guided autonomous robot: Designing a NXT-based outdoor robot able to follow a predefined path and to maintain its heading, even after avoiding an obstacle.
- GPS-based fence: Trigger customized actions (sound, light) when your NXT enters or leaves a specific area.
