3G GPS Shield for Arduino Microcontroller

You know how the Arduino has those expansion ports on it? Well, now Cooking Hacks (the same group that created the XBee shield) has created a 3G + GPS shield for attaching to those expansion ports. That’s right, you can make the Arduino accessible anywhere. As much as I hate talking about the cloud, this little beauty allows you to add your Arduino (and/or entire project) to it.

Details after the jump.

It sells for about $200 and has the following features:

  • WCDMA and HSPA 3G networks compatibility
  • Internal GPS for Assisted A-GPS and Supported S-GPS modes
  • Video Camera (640×480) for video and photo recordings available
  • Audio Kit including microphone, speaker, hands free and headphones available
  • SD file system up to 32GB
  • Works as a standard 3G modem in Linux/Windows/MacOS (~7.2Mbps download, ~5.5Mbps upload)
  • Talk directly to web servers by HTTP/HTTPS (secure)
  • Upload and download files directly by FTP/FTPS (secure)
  • Send and receive mails by POP3/SMTP
  • Play compressed audio files
