Setting Up the Galileo Board and the Development Environment


In this chapter, we first built the hardware by connecting the sensors and SD card to the Galileo board. We installed the necessary files and code on the Galileo to make it work as desired. Then, we tested the sensors and displayed the measurements on the serial monitor. We read the data and stored it on the SD card. Lastly, we analyzed and plotted the data in Excel.

To go further with this project, you can add more sensors, such as precipitation and wind speed detectors.

In the next chapter, you will learn how to control the outputs of the Galileo board. We will connect actuators, such as relays and servomotors, to the board and control them via push buttons and potentiometers.
