Capture Full Log of Route 27 at Powell

Deploys an EC2 box that checks each minute the position, speed, orientation and predicted arrival of route 27. This bus has messed with me one too many times and now it's time to get even.

  1. Sign up for Amazon Web Services free tier here. It is extremely important to ensure the region in your Amazon Web Console is set to "N. California" as the defaults are all configured to use this region in future steps. If you decide to use a different region you will need to specify the region in future steps when noted.

  2. Clone this repo including its chef recipe submodules.

    git clone --recursive https://github.com/begriffs/stalk27.git
  3. Install Packer. On a Mac you can use homebrew:

    brew tap homebrew/binary
    brew install packer
  4. Build the AMI

    packer build -var 'aws_access_key=xxx' -var 'aws_secret_key=xxx' stalker.json
  5. Launch the AMI from the Amazon Web Console. Then go watch the files accumulate on your S3 bucket.
