Low-cost Wireless Personal Weather Station for Rural Farmers
Keywords:Microcontroller; Weather Station; Server; Rural Area; Farmer
This document presents the design of a prototype of a low-cost personal weather station suitable for farmers in rural areas who are or may not be engaged in rudimentary agriculture. This prototype measure several weather data: temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall. For further data analysis, these are transmitted for recording to a remote server via wireless communication. The server offers data extraction possibilities in multiple file formats. A prototyping of the personal weather station is designed and commissioned. An extract of the results over two days is presented in the results section of this document
