GPS Receiver

Demonstration setup for GPS receiver connected to NI myRIO MXP.
This project introduces students to GPS concepts like trilateration, data parsing, and the operation, interface, and features of a GPS receiver. Students use myRIO and LabVIEWto acquire, process, and display GPS signals from a satellite. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the GPS receiver, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
