Module 3.2: Temperature and Humidity Settings

Welcome to the second part of Build Your Own Data Logger module 3. In these videos, we'll get into the process of writing our data logger application and carrying out our proof-of-concept strategy.

Our course directory has a full list of modules and videos with links. Follow our Build Your Own Data Logger playlist on our Youtube channel to catch every module as it goes live, and register for our full course to be the first to know about our module releases, live Q&A events, and course news!

In Module 3.2, we get an overview of the temperature and humidity sensor we’ll be using for this course. We learn the basics of temperature and humidity measurement, how the sensor works, and how to install the Arduino library to access and control the sensor. After that, we do hands-on labs where we read the temperature and humidity, control the sensor from our command line, and then use the temperature and humidity data to control another device.

Coming up in Module 3.3 

We’ll soon be learning how to use the analog to digital converter to measure the battery level on the Wildlogger board. In the meantime, we’ll learn more about how analog to digital converters actually work, how batteries discharge, and how we can use the analog to digital converter to measure the battery status based on the information we learned.
