DESIGN OF GPS AND COMPASS HELMET VISUAL DATA USING MICROCONTROLLER FOR MARINE FORCE OF INDONESIAN NAVY
The Marines are a component of the combat forces owned by the Navy. In carrying out their duties as infiltration forces and landing forces, sophisticated equipment is needed to support each movement in terms of knowing the position of coordinates in the form of latitude longitude and compass direction to facilitate the movement of troops in carrying out operational tasks. For this reason, a tool was made to visually know the position of the latitude and longitude of the compass, making it easier for troops to carry out their duties both on the training ground and on the battlefield. This tool is in the form of a Design Combat Helmet for Visual Data Viewer GPS and Microcontroller-based Compass for the Navy Navy. This tool uses Arduino Mega Pro Mini 2560 as a microcontroller, V.KEL 2828U7G5LF as a GPS module, HMC5883L as a Compass module and Wemos Oled LCD 64x48 0.66 "as an analog data viewer. This tool has a working principle like Google Glass that can display data visually. How it works in order to display data visually is to use the reflection of a small mirror that will be enlarged using a convex lens or loop lens and then transmitted the reflection to a visual viewer that is placed in front of the eye. In order to get data in the form of latitude longitude and compass direction alternately a push button is used which is designed as a data selector switch or counter. In testing, this tool proved to be accurate in taking GPS data and compass direction after compared with equipment that has the same function. For the V. KEL2828U7G5LF GPS Module compared to FURUNO GPS and Google Map, while for the HMC5883L Compass module compared to the Android Compass Application.
