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.


I have completed the tast required as described on the ideas page, and created a pull request, as listed here

Previous GSoC participation: First GSoc Participation, i am excited to be a part of gsoc,since contributing to open source means a lot to me and gsoc will be an special achievement. I got interested in IoT as a teenager,the fact that i could control things to do stuff for me with a single click of a button remotely over the internet or Lan was fascinating and makes life somewhat comfortable.Remotely controlled Air conditioners are a good example of the later,on a hot summer day by the time one reaches home the room is already cooled to perfection since the user activated it before leaving work/school.

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 community? Include quotes from community members who can be found on and
