So I learnt lots messing about with my Uno and now I want to make something I can use. I work as an outdoor instructor and want to make a mini weather station for use as a teaching tool that I can attach to my backpack that will display information like current temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, uv (?) along with 24hr min/max and trend.
The device will need a screen, it will be battery powered and rechargeable via USB. I’d like to log data onto an SD card and ideally pull the data from the card via the USB port too (minimal ports will make it easier to weather proof) but I haven’t looked at whether that is possible yet.
I’ve just found a 3D printer at the local library I can get stuff cost effectively printed on and I’ve just created my first CAD model and had that small part printed (which was super nerdy
So my first thing I need suggestions on is which board to use for this project?
I’ve been looking at the MKR1010
- it seems small enough
- built in battery charging via USB circuit
- IoT which I’d like to learn about
Is there a board you think would be better?
