Introducing the new Particle Tracking System (plus other major improvements announced at Spectra 2020)

Hi, so it says it’s an ‘ field-ready open reference product’. Where’s the github? Seeing how Particle implement cloud connection in their reference product will help guide everyone on the best way to get online reliably and handle things like incorrect wifi passwords and user setup.

Wow! That is a lot of code to get particle.publish and subscribe to work reliably without blocking in semi_automatic. It’d be great to see that in the main code base!

How does the tracker handle incorrect wifi creds? I couldn’t find any code for timeout / listening etc.

The Tracker SoM is cellular only for the data connection. The ESP32 is only for Wi-Fi geolocation, so it never connects to the AP, it only scans for APs.
