Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB:GOPH) BREAKING NEWS: Gopher Protocol, a company specializing in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies, including a global platform with both mobile and fixed solutions, provide synopsis of technology update, a few highlights include:
Concluded an ALPHA Schematic for its MESH system Node component - Electrical schematics represent the most detailed category of electronic drawings. They depict every component in a circuit, the component's technical information and how each component is wired into the circuit. Typically, this is the first stage before building an actual prototype for testing. Gopher is in process of developing its electronic circuit based on the drawings. The node is the mobile device that communicates with other nodes, passing along radio signals, in order to extend the range, which is a critical component of the MESH system under development.
Completed Alpha prototype PCB of its MESH node, including FW (Firmware) - Gopher has successfully completed its Alpha Printed Circuit Board (PCB) prototype of its MESH system node, including its Firmware (FW). Gopher is now going to review the final PCB and test its overall functionality. The node hardware and FW will be tested for power management/consumption, internal operations, temperature control and more. The node prototype was constructed using Digi-Key/Mouser products. We started the firmware software development in order to achieve GPS signal lost mode. This is a significant functionality in order to maintain accurate and updated GEO location even when GPS signal is lost, for example inside tunnels or inside buildings] and next step is to test with the actual Alpha PCB.
