Modular Weather Station
« on: June 27, 2016, 02:21:02 am »
I've registered my take on a Weather Station into the Hackaday Citizen Science list of projects.  Project brief is as follows:

The modular weather station uses a number of sensors mounted on breakout boards to record current weather information. Data is collected by the Oak Microcontroller (ESP8266 based board) and delivered to the Internet.

The initial project supports the following measurements:
- Air temperature
- Air pressure
- Humidity
- Ground temperature
- Light intensity (luminosity)
- Ultraviolet light intensity
- Wind speed
- Wind direction
- Rain fall

The weather station will be designed to work off-grid with limited capacity to store data for upload at a later date should an Internet connection fail temporarily.

A modular approach will be taken in order to allow the system to be built up gradually should a limited budget be available or for those only interested in particular measurements.

A stretch goal of this project is to allow for data from multiple weather stations to be collected in the cloud.

It looks like an interesting project. Will you post the code running on the Oak?
