u-blox GPS/GNSS positioning technology in IoT board that supports a host of applications

EVA-7M, a u-blox GPS/GNSS receiver module, has been embedded in the tiny IoT development board LoRaONE by SODAQ, now running a campaign on Kickstarter.

The product is a 32-bit Arduino compatible board equipped with Low-Power WAN connectivity that enables development of any kind of IoT solution, anywhere.

The matchbox-sized product (40 x 25 mm) is packed with sensors. The u-blox EVA-7M that is on the board enables a quick positioning fix. The board is equipped with an accelerometer allowing the GPS to safely switch off until the device detects movement, in order to minimize energy usage. A magnetometer identifies magnetic fields, while 14 I/O pins are available for connection with other sensors or devices.

Indoor and outdoor communications from the board are supported by the LoRa LPWAN technology. In addition, SODAQ offers a range of compatible cellular WAN development boards, also using u-blox modules.
