Now that the CatTrack collar is working, I’ve been designing the schematic for the base station. The base station is the handheld unit I’m going to use to communicate with the collar to work out where the cat is. Currently I’m using a CC1125 development board. More about that here.
The idea is that the base station will mostly live at home, perhaps in my loft (to get decent range) and I’ll be able to communicate with it from my living room via Bluetooth from my laptop. It should also be portable because if Buttons goes miles I want to be able to take the base station out and about to track him remotely.
