Cowtown capacitor has picked up a new ambitious project. We are attempting to build a weather machine. This project should be entertaining, and will offer us a vareity of challenges. The largest is the number of things we have to measure, which we haven’t even developed an inclusive list for.
What we do know that there will be at least 4 separate inputs that we will want to measure. We also know that we want this to be ruggedized because weather happens out in the elements. A device that is only safe to operate in-doors is not feasible for this project. We have to figure out how to put together an electronic device that will work literally rain or shine.
Things we know we want to measure:
- Barometric pressure
In our next session we should be addressing some of these issues, and developing a parts manifest for what sensors should be purchased and what we will use as an exterior material. Hopefully we will begin prototyping this.
