Receive Geo-location information from a Browan Tabs device and a Helium Hotspot, perform some GPS calculations using the HERE.com API, then log the data in a Google Sheet
This workflow receives HTTP post requests from an HTTP Custom Integration in the Helium Console, parses the data, then sends the data to a Google Sheet for easy viewing. The Pipedream workflow is part of an end-to-end data flow whose purpose is to make it easy to view and log gps data from a tracking device. The end-to-end workflow looks like this:
Browan Object Locator (BOL) > Helium Hotspot > Helium Network > Pipedream > Google Sheet
The BOL is a LoRaWAN tracking device that measures GPS latitude and longitude data
To interpret the GPS coordinates received from the BOL device, I've added some GPS-specific steps
The reverse geocode step is taken from Raymond Camden's blog post here: https://developer.here.com/blog/integrating-here-in-pipedream-workflows
Helium is an Internet-of-Things hardware and software platform for developers to build IoT applications (see companies like CareBand, Smart Mimic, and Conserv). Helium is also a peer-to-peer wireless IoT network (the People’s Network) where ownership of the network is distributed to whomever has purchased and deployed a Helium hotspot device.
