This weekend I was working with Blockly and made a small project consisting of a GPS, FLiP and XBee with battery power. This device transmits the GPS string to a receiver with an XBee, FLiP and OLED. It's a wireless locating device. Carol Hazlett made one too and we shared a few ideas back and forth.
What are the applications of this kind of project? I can imagine putting it on a drone as a "Drone Down" locator, or for outdoor robot location finding, etc. The examples are situations where RF works, cell doesn't have coverage, etc.
There must be more applications - what are they? Would appreciate hearing your ideas.
