Introduction


GPS is often used for localisation. There are other possibilities. One of them is listen to the surrounding WiFi networks and 'ask' Google where you are. We will use a ESP8266 with RFM95 as a node and IBM 'Cloud' / Node Red as a back-end platform.
Thanks to Charles-Henri Hallard / Ch2i for his cooperation and sharing his PCB design for workshop purposes.
