Abstract:

The paper aims in designing a system which is capable of logging the flying object travelled path into a MMC/SD card and later plots this in Google Earth application on PC. Global Positioning System (GPS) has been used in various commercial applications including transportation, navigation and vehicle position tracking, which when coupled with external memory stick the technology can help track the complete journey of any vehicle or moving objects like human or animals. This paper aims to construct a vehicle position logging system using GPS and SD/MMC (Secure Digital/Multi Media Card). The system comprises of following four modules. GPS Data Receiver,SD/MMC memory card interfacing,RS232 Interfacing. Data Processing (Microcontroller).The GPS data receiver module gets the data from GPS receiver and extracts the required data. The data storage module consists of an interface circuit between the Microcontroller and the SD/MMC card.

Keywords: RS232, GPS, SD/MMC CARD
