find home machine uses GPS and LEDs to guide you home


This is a “Find Home Detector” as labeled by the developer and it is designed to show the way home by indicating direction with a light. Components include LilyPad board, a GPS receiver, compass and some LEDs. Simply it uses the GPS to get a position fix and figure out the direction to your house. The compass then comes into play to figure out your heading so it can light up the correct LED towards your home.

We have talked about other Arduino powered GPS projects here at Navigadget and this is definitely a nice addition to that list.
