Hands-On GPS Firmware Development

Bare-Metal GSP Driver & Library | Parsing NMEA GPS Data

   Watch Promo

Welcome to the Hands-On GPS Bare-Metal Firmware Development course.

This course teaches you how to develop bare-metal drivers and libraries for receiving and parsing satellite data, in other words to build a complete gps system that is able to tell current longitude, latitude altitude (position) number of satellites being tracked etc.

So with that understood, let me tell you…

Exactly What You’re Getting

This course can be divided into 4 major sections.

First Section

The first section is theoretical. In this section we start by learning about Global Navigation Satellite Systems(GNSS) and then we go on learn about how GPS works and some factors that may affect GPS precision. We shall deal with topics such as:

  • The different Global Navigation Satellite Systems(GNSS) accross the world
  • GPS Trilateration
  • Empheris and Almanac
  • Using GPS for Geographic Information systems(GIS)
  • The GPS Error Budget
  • etc

Second Section

In the second section we shall develop all the divers to help us debug and implement some realword applications once we have developed all modules of the system. Over here we shall develop :
  • A Timebase to help us generate precise delays
  • A UART driver to help us to print out debug information

Third Section

In the third section we shall develop a driver to interface our chosen gps module(NEO-6M GPS) to our STM32 microcontroller. We shall then go on to develop efficient data structures for managing communication data between the GPS module and the STM32 microcontroller.

Last Section

We shall learn about the GPS NMEA data structure and then combine the driver and data structure developed in the previous sections together with our knowlege of the GPS NMEA data structure to develop a library that will properly parse data received by the GPS module from the satellites so that the data can be presented in a readbable and undserstandable way.

As always, no copy/paste. We write each line code from scratch.
