GNSS Simple

Application name : gnss_simple


The GNSS Simple sample application is a simple application which is querying GNSS data. This example does not require any additional hardware, just an Arduino compatible board and a compatible Embever CaaM device supported by the Embever IoT library. To wire up the hardware devices, follow the instruction in the Wiring Diagram With No Additional Component topic.

The working principle of this application is to query and show a different kind of GNSS data.


To upload this application to an Arduino compatible board navigate to the examples and select the gnss_simple from the Embever IoT library in Arduino IDE. Upload the sketch to the board and see the result in the serial terminal.

Testing the Application

To test the application, the necessary hardware connections should be set up (as mentioned before). After powering up the device, it starts querying GNSS data. To receive a valid position and other data, a suitable GPS signal quality must be present.
