Summary: I would like to build an Android app for asset tracking with Arduino sending GPS coordinate to Parse Server. I think it may be possible.
Application field: asset tracking/pet tracking
On one side I have used Parse Server by Bitnami on Amazon Web Services and I have already developed my app with Android Studio that make the user to Log in to the server with username and password and to collect the latitude and longitude data from Parse Server and send it to the the user’s smartphone. Everything is working fine and I think you have made an amazing job with Parse Server because really makes life simpler.
But I am not sure if on the other side it will work: on the Arduino side for my final prototype I would like Arduino MKR GSM 1400 or Adafruit FONA 8080 (or any similar configuration made with GPS shield) to send the latitude and longitude to parse server every 15min.
Here I have a couple of question, I have seen that you have made the SDK to work for Yùn and Zero, could it work with every Arduino as long as only
is the code?
I would like to try to test it with Arduino Uno/Genuino + Ethernet shield just to try if it is working and then in case I will pass to Arduino MKR GSM 1400 so I will have cellular connectivity. Will the Parse library work in both cases?
In order to save new data to parse is it enough to include the following code and it should work fine?
My last question would regard the set up for Arduino:
In the Arduino set up I noticed that there is not specified the Parse Server address, only
APPLICATION_ID and CLIENT_KEY
How and where should I write the server address, shouldn’t it be in the set up together with APPLICATION_ID and CLIENT_KEY similarly the way it is for Android Studio:
(all these keys are obviously made up)
I would have asked all these questions on Github but unfortunately I have seen that you have closed the thread regarding Arduino SDK for lack of activity.
Thank you very much for the time for reading my questions.
