I’m considering buying a Particle Boron and Xenon, to wirelessly connect a project I’m running on the RPi 3 to 3G (I’m from Ireland). The project runs several python programs to connect to the Google Maps API, to find traffic levels - not to locate the positions of the devices.
I then aim create a mesh network for the devices using the Xenon.
Please excuse the ignorance, but do I use the Boron in conjunction with the RPi, or can I use the Particle IDE to run the programs? The computing power of the Raspberry Pi was the reason that I used the RPi originally instead of an Arduino.
The main aim - in the long term - of using the Boron is to scale down from the RPi, although if necessary, I will use it in conjunction with the RPi.
Thanks in advance for your patience,
