AbstractThe main technical objective of this project is to create a cost efficient high precision GPS system for mining. It is to interface with the customer's existing data storage app found on their iPads placed in mining equipment. An intuitive interface is to be provided. A power system shall be designed to provide power to the unit from within the case without outside assistance. The device shall be able to withstand typical harsh conditions at a mine. The system shall be both accurate and have a long range between the individual components of the system. The system met all the requirements accept for Range (unable to test for) and Ingress Protection IP66 instead of IP67.
