Data logging with open source hardware and software in the energy sector
Data logging with open source hardware and software in the energy sector: Explore how to monitor simple climatic conditions with the Arduino in the context of solar power generation. Specifically, get an introduction to basic temperature sensing with a TMP36 chip and light with a light-emitting diode (LED), and store the information for later retrieval. Then smooth out selected results and display in a chart, using PHP as a data processor, MySQL® as storage, and Flotr as a charting library.
