Wearable GPS Logger for Waypoint-Network
February 25, 2011
I got the idea to make a wearable GPS logger wich logs the routes you walk.
This logged data will be uploaded to a server. A robot could now get a position to go, search the database on the server for any logged point in the area wich connects to a point wich is near the target area. Because a human beeing already walked there (and was outside and nothing was above him ;) ) there should be almost no obstacles..
Of course, the robots course will be logged, too but my intention is to create data from more than one source to control another source.
Now, what do you think about that? I thought about a Snowboard-jacked or something with an antenna on it (on the shoulder/s) for wifi connection to the internet (-server) and a gps antenna. The bigger boards (wifi, gps) could be on the chest (i wear my nintendo DS on the right and my pocked/mobile on the left side and i do not feel anything...) and we could use the Arduino LilyPad as main processing unit - it is designed for wearables.
Would you wear that for the greater use? :)
wifi doesnt have to be used by the wearable. A flash card could also be used, point is - the data has to be uploaded to a server...
