From the Forums: Weather Observations Station Using the Adafruit CC3000 Shield
Tech500 shared a Weather Observations station using the Adafruit CC3000 shield on the Adafruit forums:
I have a sketch that records weather observations –Humidity, Temperature, and Barometric pressure. Data is recorded in 15 minute intervals; Date & Time stamped, Displayed on Serial Monitor, Logged to microSD card, and Displayed on a Dynamic, Webpage!
I had lots of help and this was a great learning experience. Attaching sketch with the hope it will help others with their projects.
Thank you Adafruit for the resources, products, forum, and learning tutorials!!!
*** Update 03/03/2014: Revised sketch for better download performance. Not a complete solution. Need error checking to make sure webFile is only opened once.
Adafruit CC3000 WiFi Shield with uFL Connector for Ext Antenna: The CC3000 hits that sweet spot of usability, price and capability. It uses SPI for communication (not UART!) so you can push data as fast as you want or as slow as you want. It has a proper interrupt system with IRQ pin so you can have asynchronous connections. It supports 802.11b/g, open/WEP/WPA/WPA2 security, TKIP & AES. A built in TCP/IP stack with a “BSD socket” interface. TCP and UDP in both client and server mode, up to 4 concurrent sockets. It does not support “AP” mode, it can connect to an access point but it cannot be an access point. (read more)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
