Weather station project

enclosure-5-600

Alvaro Prieto has been working on a wireless weather station project:

After playing around with the breakout boards, I decided it was time to integrate it all in a single board. I named it Chaac.
This is where I ran into issues with MBED. Making the board support package (BSP) for a custom board was not trivial. Another issue was that I couldn’t get the low-power modes working quite right. At the same time, I decided to ditch GPS, since the weather station is unlikely to move without my knowledge . With the new requirements, I ended up switching to an STM32L432KC based board.

Solar powered weather station

Solar Powered Weather Station-600

Antalife has written an article detailing the build of his a solar powered weather station:

To expand my microcontroller and programming knowledge I have decided to try and make a Solar Powered Weather Station. My goal is to record parameters like:
*Temperature
*Humidity
*Air pressure
*Air quality (something to do with CO or CO2)
I then hope to send (wirelessly) the data to a base station and log/display it on a simple website. To make things interesting I also aim to power the data gathering station from a large supercapacitor (~100F), and in keeping with my solar tradition the supercapacitor will be charged from a solar-cell.

Solar powered WiFi weather station

A detailed instructions of how to build this weather station project by Open Green Energy:

This Instructable is a continuation to my earlier weather station project. It was quite popular on the web, people around the globe made their own by following it and given valuable feedbacks for improvement.By taking consideration in to the comments and Q&A section of my earlier project, I decided to make this new version Weather Station.I also made a custom PCB for this project, so any one with little knowledge on electronics circuit can be made this project. My V-2.0 PCB can also be used for many application in Arduino platform. Following are the salient features of new weather station

SQUIX ESP8266 based e-paper WiFi weather station

Erich Styger documented his experience building Daniel Eichhorn’s e-paper weather station with a custom enclosure:

Using e-paper for a weather station is an ideal solution, as the data does not need to be updated often. By default, the station reaches out every 20 minutes for new data over WiFi and then updates the display. Daniel Eichhorn already has published kits for OLED (see “WiFi OLED Mini Weather Station with ESP8266“) and touch display (see “WiFi TFT Touch LCD Weather Station with ESP8266“). I like them both, but especially the TFT one is very power-hungry and not really designed to work from batteries. What I would like is a station which can run for weeks.

Erich Styger built this ESP8266 WiFi weather station with touch LCD and wrote a post on his blog detailing its assembly:

After the “WiFi OLED Mini Weather Station with ESP8266“, here is another one: this time with Touch LCD :-)  In the previous article (“WiFi OLED Mini Weather Station with ESP8266“) I have used the OLED kit from blog.squix.org. And as promised, this time it is about the “ESP8266 WiFi Color Display Kit”
