Texas State University Weather Station Demo

  • A Weather Station that uses the Thread Mesh Network Protocol
  • Using NXP Boards and Components with the Weather Station Sensors
  • Integration of a Weather Station into Connected Home FTF Demo

This Demo Is Probably of Interest If You:

  • Have an interest in IoT applications using Thread
  • Are interested in integrating a weather meter into a connected home
  • Are a weather enthusiast or hobbyist

Differentiation This Demo Highlights

  • Implements the Thread Mesh Network
  • Uses NXP products to provide a wireless networking solution
  • Possible Connected Home Application

Description

This application demonstrates a networked weather station using the Thread mesh network and a TWR-KW24 Tower System Module. This project began as an NXP sponsored electrical engineering senior design project at Texas State University with the goal to create an application that can be used in the Thread connected home with other devices.  A weather station is an ideal way to demonstrate the versatility of this networking protocol because there are multiple sensors registering data to be shown in real time. This particular weather station was designed to read ambient temperature (°C), wind direction (nautical bearing), wind speed (mph), daily rainfall (in/day) and barometric pressure (kPa).
