Seg 1: how to use Arduino and temperature sensor to measure your environment temperature

8.1 Problem description: how to use Arduino and temperature sensor to measure your environment temperature

Temperature is closely associated with our lives, especially our journeys. In such experiment, we would use temperature sensor on the basis of Arduino board. In the later experiments, we would submit these sensed temperature data to the web server and then process. Then, we can look for many cities’ temperature. In fact, there are many similar sensors, like smoke sensor. The photoresistor is also a sensor in the 7th experiment.

8.2 Hardware and software

The required hardware is relative simple. we can replace the photoresistor by temperature on the 7th experiment, as shown in Table 8-1.
