Cross-Platform Weather Data Acquisition and Visualization

Bogdan-Adrian Enache, Cosmin Karl Banica, Geroge Bogdan Ana


This paper presents the development of a weather monitoring system based on an Arduino Board and integrated sensors. This system collects real-time data, particularly temperature and humidity, and sends it to a computer running LabView for visualisation and processing. This novel approach combines the benefits of both worlds, adding the flexibility of an embedded system with the LabView capabilities of data processing and visualisation. By exploring a unique combination of accessible technologies, this paper contributes to a growing body of literature emphasising the democratisation of scientific tools, empowering communities, educators, and researchers to engage in cutting-edge climate analysis and environmental stewardship.
