Project Horus High altitude balloon project


Chase car tracking

I've written some software to allow our chase cars to post their current positions to the tracker during the flight, as well as the balloon payload.

This means the position of both the balloon & 2 chase cars will be updated in near real time - position updates will be uploaded every 10 seconds. This relies on our chase cars having internet access - we may encounter some areas of no mobile broadband service, though we should have at least GPRS coverage most of the time.

I've included a screenshot of the tracker as I went for a drive to test the chase car tracking software.
