A tiny Cellular development board that gives you Wireless Worldwide. That means internet to anything anywhere! Project is not live yet, but feedback is appreciated.
The CELLv1.0 is an easy-to-use cellular development kit. Add it to your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or any other project you have to instantly add wireless communications capable of operating anywhere in the world!
The CELLv1.0 kit will include the cellular board, a jumper board to allow Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or any development board, an antenna, and power cable. As per Kickstarter fashion, SparqEE also offers several dev boards and shields such as GPS, accelerometer, relay, and a connection to the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, made available through Kickstarter’s donation reward system.
“I’ve been on plenty of projects where a simple cellular connection would have been a game changer to have,” says SparqEE co-founder Chris Higgins, “and as far as the CELLv1.0 not having an on-board processor, a critique I recently received, every year there’s a better MCU but I constantly reuse my breakout boards. We wanted to give people something they could use on any project well into the future and on any board, not just the current rev of the Arduino or Raspberry Pi.”

Cellular mobile devices and Google Maps can be used to provide fast and accurate localization without GPS. Using a database of cell coordinates, the location of an object can be precisely determined.

Tronixstuff has released Part 2 (for part 1 click here) of their tutorial series on using a GSM cellular modem with the Arduino. In this part they cover how to use the telephone network to control an Arduino board via a SM5100B Cellular Shield. [via]
