How to Install a Temperature & Humidity Sensor on your Raspberry Pi – A Step by Step Guide

January 10th, 2014|

During last Christmas Holidays I learned how to build from scratch a Temperature & Humidity Sensor based in a Raspberry Pi.  It was an important experience for me that give me the opportunity to complete my end-to-end view of the implementation of what we know as Internet of Services implemented in the project COMPOSE, one of our  European project that the Barcelona Supercomputing Center participates. COMPOSE will provide an open and scalable marketplace infrastructure, in which objects (like our sensor) are associated to services that can be combined, managed, and integrated in a standardised way to easily and quickly build innovative applications. Is an example of the convergence of the Internet of Services (IoS) with the Internet of Things (IoT). This step by step guide to install a temperature&Humidity sensor [...]
