WEATHER-BOARD on ODROID-SHOW
The Weather board is an easy to use ODROID-SHOW Add-on that grants you access to UV Index, barometric pressure, altitude, relative humidity, illumination and temperature. Each board comes with a 6-pin connector for ODROID-SHOW connection. All the sensor data go though I2C communication between sensor ICs and ATMEGA328P MCU on the ODROID-SHOW.
With a lithium polymer battery, you can make a portable outdoor weather data capture system.
To use Weather board in ODROID-SHOW, you need to write a WEATHER-BOARD firmware.
Writing firmware the WEATHER-BOARD on Ubuntu
Settings Arduino IDE
Install the Arduino IDE
sudo apt-get install arduino
Run Arduino IDE
Download the WEATHER-BOARD source code
sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/hardkernel/WEATHER-BOARD
You need to add the WEATHER-BOARD libraries in the IDE through the menu skech → import Library… → Add Library…
The following way, add WEATHER-BOARD folder. (sketchbook folder)
Compile and Upload
Check the serial port between /dev/ttyUSBn and “tools → Serial Port” of Arduino IDE.
# ls /dev/ttyUSB*
Finally, after connecting the jumper, click “upload” button on Arduino IDE.
The DTR reset jumper MUST be installed when you upload the firmware.
The DTR reset jumper must NOT be installed in normal usage mode.
