Over the past few days, I have been testing sensors, particularly ones to be used to log all info I will need from the plane. With some DS18B20s, a DHT11 and the Y-30 SD module, there will be a lot of data gathered.
The Arduino will log to a .csv formatted file on a 4gb SD card, which excel will open up easily, and allow creation of graphs. This is the first release, with some minor improvements in the future. Best to move on to the stabilisation side of things, being more important than a weather station.
This is the output from having the temp datalogger set outside for a few hours.
Not a great change so close to a brick house, and under cover but still pretty cool and a good example of what you can do with the data from SD.
Most things have now arrived! Here’s some photos of the gear, thanks to Deal Extreme The matrix keypad, with the Arduino mega and a NDS resistive touch screen The DS18B20 temp sensors, for internal measurement and the DHT11 for external … Continue reading →
