After your Pi is up and running and working with the Black Box Pi software, here are some things worth noting that you can do with your Pi.
A web based status page runs on the Pi which displays status information from the Black Box Pi software. Simply point your browser to your Pi’s IP. This is the same IP you’ve been using to connect to the Pi via SSH. Assuming it’s on your local network, it would be something like this:
These are the services that run in the background to log and sync GPS data.
/etc/init/gpslogger.conf – Runs the Python script gps_main.py which reads GPS data from the USB receiver and logs it to the local database.
/etc/init/gpssync.conf – Runs the Python script sync_gps.py which reads GPS data from the database and uploads it to the Black Box Pi web service API.
To start or stop either of these services, use these commands:
sudo service gpslogger start sudo service gpslogger stop sudo service gpssync start sudo service gpssync start
