It's my first post on the new arduino forum.
I made a weather station using arduino fio, xbee, cell phone battery and a solar panel array(2 now I'll put more later if needed). For the sensors I have an anemometer, wind direction, rain gauge(all sparkfun), photocell(sparkfun), DS18B20(temperature from local supplier). I'm waiting to delivery here in Brazil humidity and pressure sensors(sparkfun).
I use the code below as a start:http://code.google.com/p/pweatherstation/
During development I put it on my room porch(of course it's not the best place), but I'm building to my father-in-law that is a farmer and has tons of space available.
- code at http://www.bitbucket.org/trunet/
(not yet, I'll release soon)
- make a stevenson screen to assemble everything
- assemble solar panels and make it waterproof
- make the soil moisture
- soil moisture deployment
- humidity sensor deployment
- pressure sensor deployment
- printed circuit board
