Welcome to our blog on dataloggers, sensors, and other open source hardware projects. We have created this site as a way of sharing our ideas, designs, and source code so other researchers and hobbyists can follow along with what we are developing. Hopefully this will be a collaborative effort where we can trade knowledge and build some innovative new hardware projects together.
During the first week of December 2012, I will be presenting a poster and showcasing some of our hardware at the American Geophysical Union’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Last year we presented our preliminary ideas and got tremendous support and interest from all over the world. Now that our loggers and other devices have been deployed in various weather and locations, and in use for more than a year, the hardware is now past the “prototype” phase, and we’re ready to share the details of our projects. In the coming weeks and months, this blog will serve as our way of sharing those designs, along with tips and tricks we’ve learned in the past two years of Arduino development.
In the past year, I have gotten emails requesting information and help from many people, and most of the questions have been about the same topics. In order to make it easier for other people to follow along, please post your basic questions here on this blog, preferably in the forum most related to your topic. You can still email me if you have a specific question or request for more information on a topic you’d like to see discussed here.
