I'm just a sucker for weather stations. I don't know what it is about them, but I can't ever seem to get enough of them. And since we're currently having some "weather" here in Southern California I thought a .Net Micro Framework Weather Station something cool to blog about... This is more work of Paolo Patierno (who brought us, Get your .Net Micro Framework devices up with the μPLibrary!)
This project helps you to build a weather station based on .Net Micro Framework. The data come from some sensors (temperature, humidity, luminosity and wind speed) and you can read them, in real time, using a Web page on the integrated Web Server. Enabling data logging, you can save your data into a microSD.
The project is built for Netduino Plus board and based on .Net Micro Framework 4.2 but you can use a different board changing only the pin for the sensors connections.
It uses Metro UI CSS (http://metroui.org.ua/) for Metro style Web page.
The main components are :
- Netduino Plus board;
- Wind Speed Anemometer;
- SHT1X Temperature and Humidity sensor;
- Photoresistor for luminosity;
- DS1307 RTC;
- microSD for data logging;
Here's a snap of the Solution,
Did you catch how it's built-in Web Server feeds up a Tile Web UI by using http://metroui.org.ua/? That's kind of cool, isn't it?
