For my 14-week project in the Prototyping Electronic Devices class I would like to build a self-contained, remote weather station that operates via GPRS (2G).
Ideally, parts will be low cost (> $20) and relatively simple. The device will be built into a waterproof enclosure with a solar panel on the outside. The solar panel will charge a battery, which will provide power to the circuit. The circuit will pull data from a variety of sensors (inputs) at a specified time interval and then transmit that data to an AWS server (outputs), which will be displayed on an HTML page, potentially with some basic data visualization or simply in a table.
- Tempature sensor
- Humidity sensor
- Pressure sensor
- Light sensor
- Rain sensor
- Sensor outputs posted to database via GPRS
- Possible data visualization overlay for database data
