Arduino board opens route to GPS-based IoT projects

The Wireless Input Output (Wio) Tracker from Seeed Studio is an open source gateway that allows for faster GPS solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) by tracking nearly any moving thing and uploading that data wirelessly. It is an Arduino-compatible development board that integrates Bluetooth 3.0 and GPRS into a single board for quickly and easily developing location-tracking solutions.

The GPRS feature provides a moderate bandwidth which allows immediate interaction between the user and device.

The Wio Tracker is based on the low-power Microchip SAM D216 ARM Cortex-M0+ microcontroller with 256 Kbytes of flash and 32 Kbytes of SRAM.

The board features a space-saving Nano SIM/microSD socket, as well as six user-friendly Seeed Grove connections that enable any combination of Grove system sensors and actuators, which can simplify the prototyping and development phase.

For added speed and flexibility, the Wio Tracker features 99 GNSS receiver channels for quicker lock times.

The board also offers a GNSS low power (GLP) mode, which can cut power consumption by up to 40%.
