3G/GPRS Shield for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Intel Galileo
3G/GPRS Shield: connect and locate
The Internet of Things... ring any bells? The 3G/GPRS Shield has everything it takes to fully satisfy your connectivity needs by allowing you to access the 3G HSPA and WCDMA cellular networks. The very best in wireless communication!
And, as its name suggests, this shield is of course compatible not only with your Arduino , but also with your Raspberry Pi and your Intel Galileo. Please note that you must make sure the Arduino/Raspberry Pi jumper is in the Arduino position when you use this board, at the risk of damaging your shield. The Raspberry Pi position should only be used when the shield is connected to a Raspberry Pi.
3G Shield: improve it yet further!
Although extremely efficient when used alone, the 3G/GPRS Shield for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Galileo becomes even more formidable when combined with its audio/video kit, equipped among other things with the brand-new mini 2MP (1600 x 1200) UXGA resolution video camera. You can then use it to listen to your MP3 files and to save photos and videos.
To access these features, don’t forget to update your firmware by running the relevant program in Windows.
