Abstract

Temperature is one of the most measure weather parameter. In most cases it is sufficient to measure and read out the instantaneous temperature of an environment. For useful analysis and weather prediction however, it is important to see the trend and variation of such measure temperature over a long period of time. This project will involve the design and fabrication of a microcontroller based temperature monitoring and logging system. The microcontroller will acquire digital temperature values from a precision temperature sensor, whose value is then processed and send to computer software through the USB port for logging and future analysis of the measure data. This system can be upgraded to form a full weather monitoring Equipment.

Keywords: Temperature, Humidity, Microcontroller, USB port, Logging
