Mongoose OS + Google Cloud Platform + Firebase = IoT Weather Station Powered by ESP32 | #IoTuesday #MQTT
Brazil-based developer Alvaro Viebrantz has a thorough walkthrough on Medium for constructing an IoT weather station, conceivably powered by our own Feather HUZZAH32 kit compatible with Mongoose OS & Google Cloud Platform. He details everything from configuring Wi-Fi to safely flashing firmware and creating tables to display in web-accessible dashboards. (Note some screenshots on the article include text in Portuguese, but I reckon most will be able to follow along just fine 🙂 ) Read more here or if you want to jump ahead and check out some code look here for the GitHub repo.
Collecting massive amount of data, with a managed and serverless architecture so you don’t get yourself burned in the process.
Ok, there is a lot of tutorials teaching how to build a Weather Station because there many ways of doing it. It’s a simple project so I will try to focus on building an end to end solution, from collecting data to doing analytics on your data. All of it will use managed Google Cloud services, giving an overview on how to build a complete IoT solution. At the end, you could build reports on your data and access it through the web.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
