Located in London, Earthshine Electronics is a source of parts and kits relate to Arduino. Other electronics or microcontroller needs also.
See on right is the DFRduino Duemilanove – 100% Arduino compatible clone. Compatible with Standard Arduino Software and Shields.
Beginning Arduino – Michael McRoberts
Digital Barograph made with SCP1000 & GLCD
Arduino Mega Project – Measurement and Data Logging. Digital Pressure Sensor and 128×64 Graphic LCD. Plots graph of current pressure, temperature variation with time.
This certainly is a good project for college students. You can also enhance it for multiple channels, mini thermal printer interface.
Stand alone remote data loggers must be able to take a Standard Thumb Drive for storing and easy retrieval of data. In urban areas a wireless internet transfer is better. In a desert or jungle a satellite data transfer or small flash storage, that can be manually collected and logged into network.
The basic premise of the project is to have sensor nodes monitoring things such as temperature, pressure, humidity, light levels and so on and then send that data wirelessly back to a base station which will upload it to a web server.
