The PCAN-GPS is a freely programmable sensor module for position and position determination. It has a satellite receiver, a magnetic field sensor, an acceleration sensor and a gyroscope. The acquired data can be transferred to a CAN bus and recorded on the internal memory card. Data collected is processed by a microcontroller of the NXP LPC4000 series.
Using the supplied library and the GNU-ARM-Toolchain Yagarto (contains the GNU Compiler Collection GCC for C and C ++), a separate firmware can be created and then transferred to the module via CAN. This provides a wide range of possibilities for manipulating, evaluating, filtering and routing data traffic.
When delivered, the PCAN-GPS is equipped with a demo firmware, which regularly sends the raw data of the sensors on the CAN bus. The source code of the demo firmware as well as other programming examples are included in the scope of delivery.
