Executive Summary

The goal of the parent project - Local Weather Station through Remote Sensor Network , under which this projects comes, is to build and deploy a remote data network to gather environmental data from around campus and display it on a standard web interface. It will be based on a model using a central server with sensors (temperature, humidity, pressure, etc.) attached to remote clients. The clients will use either wifi or Ethernet to report data back to the server. A wide range of remote clients will be considered (BeagleBone, Arduino, ESP8266, etc.) making it easy to interface other types of clients in the future. The server will run open-source data gathering software (such as Phant, mqtt or ThingSpeak) and will present the data in graphical form on a web server (Plotly, Flot, Google Charts, Initial State, etc.). The system will be designed to be robust, gathering data 24/7.

Our roal: Displaying the gathered data in the most usable forms is the goal of the sub-project - ‘Data Display of Weather Station'. The displayed data will be interactive i.e. users will be able to zoom into to see data of higher resolutions of time and interact in many more ways. If many sensors are used around the campus then we can display the temperature, humidity, pressure etc. gradients in the campus through interactive maps. Probably we can build a permanent display (a small screen/LCD) of the live weather parameters somewhere in or around central mess.


[Doubts as to what will go here]

Installation Instructions

It is a little too early to comment on the installation procedure of our project, given that the project has been only been initiated as of now.

User Instructions

The user instructions would follow subsequently after having the installation file and procedure setup.


In a vast campus like ours, seldom are the temperature readings consistent at different places. Hence, it is our objective to gather weather inputs at several points in the campus and then deduce the mean of these readings to get a generalised value. In addition to this, we are interested in generating the statistical figures such as standard deviations and graphs for the weather changes, in the campus.

Theory of Operation

The theory of operation relies wholly on the operation of the individual components of the project, in this case, on the individual sensors and the wifi module.

Work Breakdown

Future Work

We would try and install a suitable set-up for measuring the wind speed in the campus. The setup could be located on the rooftop of any tall building.


As of now, we have done the groundwork to deal with the sensors and wifi module handed over to us. In the near future, we are planning to install sensor apparatus in a few whereabouts in the campus.
