A short summary of the idea will go here
Student: Manas Mangaonkar
Mentors: Stephanie Lockwood-Childs, Steve Arnold
This Proposal for Sonic Anemometer was accepted in Gsoc 2016,but the chosen ADC proved to be inefficient for sampling at high frequency.
In 2017 again the project was accepted and PRUDAQ was used which solved the sampling and creating trigger for ultrasonic pulse problems.
However Since the final idea is to have a working prototype of a basic weather station with every possible thing ranging from Humidity,temperature to air speed and maybe even pressure.
I discuss what all i plan to implement below.

About My project
Project name: BeagleBone Sonic Anemometer / Basic Weather Station
Get the Anemometer/Basic weather station prototype working,by implementing the best methods to counter operational Environment Disturbances.
Anemometer's are used world wide by Meterologists,Researchers and Scientists to calculate Three Dimensional Windspeed and turbulence. Sonic Anemometers are however utilised since they aren't affected by their operational environmental Conditions.
What will you do if you get stuck on your project and your mentor isn’t around?
If successfully completed, what will its impact be on the BeagleBoard.org community? Include quotes from BeagleBoard.org community members who can be found on http://beagleboard.org/discuss and http://bbb.io/gsocchat.
Is there anything else we should have asked you?
