Abstract

The ability to monitor environmental conditions is crucial to research in fields ranging from climate variability to agriculture and zoology. Being able to document baseline and changing environmental parameters over time is increasingly essential important and researchers are relying more and more on unattended weather stations for this propose. A Zigbee Based Smart Sensing Platform for Monitoring Environmental Parameters has been designed and developed. The smart weather station consists of SiLab C8051F020 microcontroller based measuring units which collect the value of the temperature, relative humidity, pressure and sunlight. These units send their data wireless to a central station, which collects the data, stores and displays them into a database. The facility of adding a few more sensors and a few more stations has been provided.
