POLICY

At Ground Lab one of the main goals is to make the solutions we develop have a continuous effect, to that end Ground Lab shares the created tools and technologies to expand and facilitate the development of these possible panacea.

All our products come out of actual projects so the tools are designed around specific uses and are field tested, a overview of the results and the general hardware/use description is provided on the >Ground Lab Hardware and Devices< page.

Most of our devices are also open sourced so you can build them or use them as design references. The parts list and eagle files are available on the >Ground Lab Hardware and Devices< page, if you do develop them you must adhere to the licensing stipulations and please let us know how it went and share your designs back.

GSM/GPRS Hardware

Little Boy

The LittleBoy Board is designed to easily give access to the GPS and GSM functionality of the Telit, providing a small, portable, easy to use tracking device. The device is capable of taking satellite based GPS data and sending it via the cell network to a web based server, allowing for web based real-time visualizations of the devices current position. Easy access to the Telit interface is done through the use of a on board USB chip allowing direct communication and programming from your computers USB port as well as a logic level conversion circuit to allow a microcontroller to easily attach to the device.

The board combines five technologies into one board:

On board python interpreter 
Satellite based GPS locational data 
GSM sim based networked connectivity
A USB FTDI chip for easy access to the Telit module
A USB charging circuit to charge the device off your PC

Big Brother

The Big brother board is a multi-use platform that combines a Atmel microcontroller with a GSM module to allow communication over any cell network. With the device you can use all the functionality of the atmel microcontroller (ADC conversions, Digital I/O, Uart, I2C) and then link it to remote modules, the InterWeb or your cell phone with the GSM Telit module. This boards original function was to link a remote PV system to the web via a local cell network in Mali. It was used to provide two functions:

  • Collect real time operational and environmental data about the in field system.
  • Control operational and mechanical behavior of the PV system from a centralized server.

The BigBrother board is a combination:

-Sirfstar GPS unit 

-GSM(class 10 cell module)

-AVR atMega1280 RISC microcontroller

It can be used with the Arduino IDE or with AVR studio to program the AVR AtMega1280 through ISP or Jtag interface.
