The goal is to build an Internet connection weather station. Besides the standard tempurature, pressure, and humidity it should also collect snowfall information (the trickiest part of the project)
Equipment As of 12-31-2019, the equipment list of items being used:
An Onion Omega2+ The board is fairly powerful from an embedded standpoint, and has built-in Wifi connectivity. It’s very well that just an Onion Omega2 would probably have plenty of space An Onion Arduino Dock: The other parts of the Weatherstation kit are Arduino base, so using this dock makes sense.
Modify a dog feeder to dispense food based on a known schedule and RFID tags put on the collar of each dog. Still in the early planning stages, it will hopefully help keep our dogs well fed, but also provide lots of data for analysis!
Moo Machine: An Altair 8800 style machine designed to implement the “COW” programming language. Weather Station: A weather station that can track all the usual metrics, plus snowfall! RFID Dog Feeder: Modify a dog feeder to dispense food based on a known schedule and RFID tags put on the collar of each dog.
An Altair 8800 style machine designed to implement the “COW” programming language. It’s a really simplistic language, but is technically Turing complete. The machine itself is powered by a Arduino Mega (more for the IO pins then the actual processor)
