Connecting GPS/GPRS vehicle module to Base Station
Posted on 2005-05-16
I am currently developing on a GPS location software i created. I want to expand it into a Tracking software. I understand that i will be needing a base station and a remote device. I am thinking of the Wisco GPRS/GPS/GSM module for the vehicles. The program i wrote can already connect to the GPS device attach to the computer. i want it to connect remotely to the Vehicle module via GPRS or some form of Data transmission.
What equipment is needed for the base station? can a regular GSM modem be used? is it capable of managing about 500 vehicle modules at the same time?
I am not new to programming i am a professional software developer, however i am new to GPRS programming. How do i go about using AT commands to create a successful GPRS connection? does these all-in-one device automatically send GPS data through the embedded GPRS module or u need to write a embedded program? when the GPS data is sent how do i capture the data? (i already know what to do after the data is aquired).
In short, what i need is a guide to successfuly setup and connect my base station to vehicle modules.
