MicroSD Card Breakout Board: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/adafruit-microsd-card-breakout-board#description
This is an example. Any Arduino-compatible microSD card slot will do.
MicroSD Card: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-microSDHC-Memory-Adapter-Performance/dp/B073K14CVB/
Again, any card that's 1GiB+ will do.
Arduino Uno: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Elegoo-Board-ATmega328P-ATMEGA16U2-Arduino/dp/B01EWOE0UU/
Any will do.
RFM95 + Breakout: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/adafruit-rfm95w-lora-radio-transceiver-breakout?variant=19595325639
The LoRa radio modem. All-in-one.
If the above isn't possible, then the following will be needed:
Raw RFM95: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/RFM95-RFM95-wireless-transceiver-module-LoRa-spread-spectrum-communication-868MHz-915MHz-SX1276-16-16mm-8000m/32811523237.html
A raw RFM95. Only needed if the RFM95 + Breakout isn't possible. Requires the below breakout board separately.
RFM95 Breakout: https://www.tindie.com/products/leonahi/rfm95-lora-breakout-board/
An RFM95 breakout board. Only needed if the above is chosen.
3.3v - 5v level shifter: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/HILABEE-Converter-Bi-Directional-Shifter-8-Channel/dp/B07LFFFRD9/
Only needed if a raw RFM95 is bought.
GPS Module: https://thepihut.com/products/gps-module-with-enclosure?variant=27741075537
Any arduino-compatible GPS board is fine.
Breadboard: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/solderless-breadboard-400-point
Very useful for designing circuits. Not essential, as I think I've got one at home lying around.
Jumper cables:
- https://thepihut.com/products/adafruit-premium-female-male-extension-jumper-wires-20-x-3
- https://thepihut.com/products/adafruit-premium-male-male-jumper-wires-20-x-6-150mm
- https://thepihut.com/products/adafruit-premium-female-female-jumper-wires-20-x-6-150mm
Just examples. I'll of course need some jumper cables to put it all together with. I should imagine the department has some of these already?
Battery: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Anker-PowerCore-Aluminum-Portable-Lipstick-Sized-Black/dp/B005QI1A8C/
Size unknown, so this is _not_ to be included in the initial purchase. I'll need to run some tests to see how much power it uses to figure outt he right battery size.
Project box: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/waterproof-plastic-Enclosure-Power-junction-Grey/dp/B01JHBHNMA/
Only needed if I can't gain access to the Fab Lab to 3D-print one.
TPL-5111: https://www.adafruit.com/product/3573
A brilliant and essential board that reduces power consumption by turning an arduino device on and off at regular intervals.
Micro usb breakout: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1833
Needed to interface with the battery & insert the TPL-5111 in between the battery & the Arduino.
TODO: Add the following: Micro-usb cable, mimcro-usb power intake
TODO: Merge this into the README
