Update #6

We have successfully sent coordinates received from the GPS using GET from the GPRS to a server every 5 seconds. Now we should start building a container and a way to power up the unit for long periods.

Update #2

Two simple endpoints were created to test that the devices can send & receive data. To test it use the following cURL command

curl --data "lat=10.24059&lng=-80.240586" http://smsbus.miamicode.org/routes/101/trips/10/location

This should eventually be replaced by the API being built by Jonathan & Syed

For details on the end points, see https://github.com/Code-for-Miami/mdt-bus-sms/pull/40

Update #1

So far we are still gathering the componentes for the project. -Arduino board (we will borrow this since a couple of people have it) -GSM shield (we bought it already) -GPS shield (already arrived) -Battery (we bought it already) -Antena (we bought it already)

We need somebody to help with the API
