Free Shipping Within The United States!
The PiCAN FD board has a ublox NEO-M8M GPS/GNSS receiver. The NEO-M8 modules employ simultaneous reception of up to three GNSS systems (GPS/Galileo together with BeiDou or GLONASS), recognize multiple constellations simultaneously, and provide outstanding positioning accuracy even when weak signals are involved. The antenna connection is via an SMA connector.
The onboard Microchip MCP2518FD IC provides classic CAN and CAN FD.
A 3A SMPS module powers the PiCAN FD GPS/GNSS board and Raspberry Pi (3/4) from 7 VDC to 24 VDC from an external power supply.
There is an easy-to-install SocketCAN driver and programming support in C or Python.

Programming GPS and OpenStreetMap Applications with Java: The RealObject Application Framework
Written by an expert in developing GPS systems with digital maps and navigation, Programming GPS and OpenStreetMap Applications with Java: The RealObject Application Framework provides a concrete paradigm for object-oriented modeling and programming. It presents a thorough introduction to the use of available global positioning data for developing applications involving digital maps.
The author first describes the different formats of GPS data and digital maps and shows how to use recorded GPS traces to replay and display this data on a digital map. Then, he works through the processing steps of obtaining dedicated data from OpenStreetMaps and how to extract a network for a simple navigation application. For each topic covered―GPS data, OpenStreetMaps, and navigation―Java code is developed that can easily be adapted to the readers’ needs and locality.
Finally, all components are put together in a sample computer game application modeled on the well-known board game Scotland Yard. The computer game is intended to be a basis for readers to develop and customize their applications for their desired geographical area. The developed application can be "published" on the Internet and made available for interactive multiplayer competition.
