Profile Info

A Raspberry Pi minicomputer forms the backbone of this Kiwi-built weather-station. The station’s sensors (DHT22, BMP085, reed switch) can log up to seven variables: ambient temperature, air pressure (sea level as reference), humidity, wind-speed, rain-gauge level and altitude. The information is stored in a folder on the Raspberry Pi, which can be accessed directly (using a monitor, mouse and keyboard) or as a remote desktop (through the router connected to a laptop) via an ethernet link. Various options and menus are available. Note: in the video Liam presents; he is the software specialist explaining the detail of the coding

The Remote Weather Station was a finalist in the 15-16 Catgory, well done Liam and Nico!
