Setting Up the Galileo Board and the Development Environment

Hardware and software requirements

Firstly, you need to secure your Intel Galileo board. This will serve as our microcontroller board. Note that we'll use Gen 2 for this project.

We'll only use two sensors—a DHT11 and a photocell. We will need the DHT11 for the temperature and humidity measurements and the photocell for measuring the ambient light level.

Aside from these major components, you will also need a 1N4148 diode, 4.7K and 10K Ohm resistors, breadboard, jumper wires, and, of course, an SD card.

Here is a list of all the components needed for this project:

At this point, we're ready to start...
