This time the project is named as Weather Monitoring System. This is another TIVA based project presented by students of UET LHR.
Weather monitoring plays an important role in human life, so the collection of information about weather changes is very important. In any industry during certain hazards it is very important to monitor weather. In this project, we will monitor different weather parameters with the help of respective sensors. These sensors will be interfaced with TM4C1233H6PM microcontroller and there output will be shown on an LCD module. These temperature parameters include temperature, humidity and light intensity. Our system includes DHT 22 sensor for measuring temperature and humidity and a photodiode which is used to measure relative light intensity in the atmosphere.
An automated weather system is a system that measures and records meteorological parameters using sensors without intervention of humans. The measured parameters can be stored in a built-in data logger or can be transmitted to a remote location via a communication link. If the data is stored in a data logger, recorded data must be physically downloaded to a computer at a later time for further processing. Therefore, the communication system is an essential element in an automated weather station. Today, automated weather stations are available as commercial products with variety of facilities and options. Although automated weather stations can be built and implemented in remote areas to bring down the cost of maintaining weather stations, until recently, not much emphasis has been given for building and using such instruments locally. Automated weather stations have been developed in universities by interfacing meteorological parameter monitoring sensors to microcomputer/commercially available data loggers with communication devices or through serial and parallel ports to obtain hard copies of weather data. We are going to design such a small embedded system which can be used locally to monitor weather.
