Raspberry Pi GSM Hat

Raspberry Pi GSM Hat

The Spark Electron was released a few days ago, giving anyone with the Arduino IDE the ability to send data out over a GSM network. Of course, the Electron is just a GSM module tied to a microcontroller, and you can do the same thing with a Pi , some components, and a bit of wire. The build is fairly basic – just an Adafruit Fona , a 2000 mah LiPo battery, a charge controller, and a fancy Hackaday Perma-Proto Hat , although a piece of perf board would work just as well in the case of the perma-proto board. Connections were as simple as power, ground, TX and RX. With a few libraries , you can access a Pi over the Internet anywhere that has cell service, or send data from the Pi without a WiFi connection. If you decide to replicate this project, be aware you have an option of soldering the Fona module right side up or upside down. The former gives you pretty blinking LEDs, w...
