I am new to the Arduino world and as an introduction project I decided to take on a real time GPS tracking of an autonomous robot and I should be able to:
- Send GPS data from Arduino Uno board to Firebase
- Catch that data from Firebase (using React) and render it in a leafletjs map
What I have:
- Arduino Uno
- GPS Module: GY-NEOMV2
So far, I created a Firebase database and I am able to get dummy data I inserted manually back into React and render them into a lealfet map. But after many online searches, I found out that a permanent WiFi connection is necessary.
My question is: Is there any way to send GPS data from my board to Firebase without my board being constantly connected to WiFi? Mainly because the robot I am working on is supposed to be autonomous and I don't have a WiFi shield for that matter.
Would appreciate the help, thanks !
