A little bit different from other DIY weather station, Weather Canvas is a outdoor wireless weather monitoring system coupled with an indoor LED display.
For your information, the outdoor system consists of a microcontroller, temperature sensor, humidity sensor, self-DIY anemometer, a Hot Wheels radar gun (It’s for measuring precipitation) and a solar panel to measure sunlight, also charge the microcontroller’s power source!
This is how the Weather Canvas works:
In the very beginning, the system is transmitting the data it has collected to the indoor microcontroller by a 433 MHz RF signal.
After it, the signal is decoded and the information is displayed as a sequence of five vibrant images on the 8×8 RGB LED matrix.
Stop wasting your time here and let’s build your very own Weather Canvas today!
