Weather station is working

Comments Off

[Today’s run: Silo route, 6 miles]

I have been making some good progress on the autonomous weatherstation project.

As you may recall, I bought some surplus weather station units.  I’d like to have them operate autonomously and present their data via web browser.

I bought a BeagleBone SBC (single board computer) and a USB wifi thingy.  After wrestling with that for awhile, I got some more parts and the BeagleBone was talking to the weather station.  I then found a webpage which gave directions for installing an updated driver for the wifi and that is now working.

I was able to install various libraries and then the  wview weather software.  I have some more work to do, but it is really looking pretty good.  Next I need to work on the power system.
