Invitation : Building an IoT Micro Weather Station

Imagine a country where every school/college/university monitors weather (temperature, humidity, light intensity, rainfall, wind speed/direction, atmospheric pressure, air quality, etc.) we can get very accurate ground-level data. Here is an invitation to make a DIY IoT Micro weather station project.

Building an IOT Micro Weather Station

Since a weather station has to monitor several parameters, we will make separate project pages for each sub-system.

How will a micro-weather station could look like?

Here is a picture of one that we recently made.

The Interface of the above weather station

Weather Parameters which could be measured:

  1. Temperature
  2. Humidity
  3. Light Intensity
  4. Atmospheric Pressure
  5. Rainfall
  6. Wind Speed
  7. Wind Direction
  8. Particulate matter and any others.

How many parameters the station could read depends on howmany sensors you could lay hands on.

You can use Arduino or Raspberry pi or any other computing platform (Arduino is mostly preferred due to its low cost).

At any point, if you need help, or have any question, please reply to this post below.

Weather station

A weather station is a facility, either on land or sea, with instruments and equipment for measuring atmospheric conditions to provide information for weather forecasts and to study the weather and climate. The measurements taken include temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and precipitation amounts. Wind measurements are taken with as few other obstructions as possible, while temperature and humidity measurements are kept free from direct solar radiation, or i…

Internet of things

The Internet of things (IoT) is the extension of Internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded with electronics, Internet connectivity, and other forms of hardware (such as sensors), these devices can communicate and interact with others over the Internet, and they can be remotely monitored and controlled. The definition of the Internet of things has evolved due to the convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, a…
