I would like to track sensors that we deploy using OpenCPN
running on a Raspberry PI. What would be the best way to do this?
The sensors will be uploading their GPS
locations to a website using GPRS/3G. The Raspberry PI will be running a GPRS/3G modem
requesting the data from the website. The area where we operate has good 3G/GPRS coverage.
I thought of making the sensors "AIS" sources on OpenCPN
, i.e., programming the OpenCPN software
so that the received GPS
locations are fed through as AIS
sources. Are there better ways to achieve this?
Also, where can I find the documentation
for the AIS
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated
