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 on your Raspberry Pi (Revision 2 type) is written by Bernat Torres and myself. It was an amazing experience for us!. Also the prototype build in this hands-on is part of the scientific project of the secondary school in our town. It is an excellent example for the students to show the diverse areas that comprise the current technological scenario. This tutorial is clearly a taste of various current technologies in a holistic way: Electronics, Hardware, System Software, Applications, Programming Language, Internet of Services, etc.
We didn’t found any tutorial that could be followed by a secondary school students in order to build a sensor prototype like this. For this reason Bernat and I think that it will be useful for other students to summarise our knowledge and share this hands-on. We hope that you enjoy it! A Step by Step Guide LINK
