Implementation of GPS for Location Tracking.

Abstract- Stand alone global positioning system receivers are
widely used nowadays to accurately locating one’s position. By
using stand alone GPS receivers the distance between two
locations on earth can also be measured. This project is aim to
design and implement a low cost Global Positioning System
suitable to be used for hiking, climbing and sailing activities. The
function of the GPS is to locate the position of user. The effects of
line of sights in relation to different experimented locations are
also studied. In this project, the hardware used is PIC18F4520
integrated with GPS receiver typed FV-M8. The GPS modules
will generate the coordinates of latitude and longitude as well as
the bearing angles between two positions. The algorithm to
calculate the distance between two positions was developed by
using PIC C Compiler. The written algorithm extracted the data
from the GPS receiver via the RS232 communication.
Microcontroller is used to parse the NMEA data sentences and
execute the algorithm. Finally, the output is displayed to a LCD
display unit. System testing conducted showed that for a few
chosen different locations, geographical view and weather
conditions, overall results give an average of 10 % different
compared with ideal theoretical calculated results.
