The kit is built around AWS IoT ExpressLink and offers AWS IoT Core access with a pre-inserted Hologram SIM card for global use. It includes a SARA-R5 module mounted on a SparkFun MicroMod Asset Tracker Carrier Board, which allows the module to be used with various microprocessors. An ESP32 Processor Board is also part of the kit, enabling you to run examples or demo applications.
The Asset Tracker Carrier Board is equipped with an integrated ICM-20948 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for 9-Degree Of Freedom orientation and movement detection. This means that the Asset Tracker can send a message if your asset is moved. Additionally, the board has a built-in digital microphone that can send an alert as soon as a noise is detected.
For data logging, the SparkFun Asset Tracker Carrier Board has a built-in micro-SD card socket. It also has a SIM card port and an LTE antenna. Power options include USB-C and LiPo battery with built-in charging and battery fuel gauge. However, power can also be provided via a breakout pin.
The Asset Tracker is compatible with any MicroMod Processor Boards. Depending on the features and configurations you need, some Processor Boards may be more suitable for your application than others. To assist you in getting started, the kit includes a MicroMod Update Tool.
It's important to note that the SARA-R5 module in the kit only accepts AWS IoT ExpressLink AT commands. The regular u-blox SARA-R5 AT commands are not supported. Also, please ensure that your service provider offers LTE-M coverage for your area before purchasing.
