One thing that affects almost every person daily is the weather. Will it be sunny, what will the temperature be, will the wind pick up, etc.? These are questions the average person thinks about each morning when they wake up. With that being said, predicting the weather seems to be one of the most difficult things. Everyone can agree that there are multiple times where they look at their weather app and then the next day it could not be further from what it said the day before.
The problem we are trying to solve is plain and simple and helpful for everyone: have an accurate prediction of the weather. This is useful because the hope is for this to be more accurate than what the weather app can predict, or at least double check to ensure that it is giving accurate predictions. It is believed people would want it because it will help them have more confidence in weather predictions. If this system works, the consumer can either have confidence in it working correctly, or at least be able to compare the predictions with those on a weather app to check how accurate those are.
What makes this system so novel is how simple it is and user friendly it can be. It brings in something as confusing as weather predictions and puts in right in the palm of your hand. Whether it helps predict something different than what is shown other places (and is more accurate), or it just helps build confidence in what is being predicted, it just helps the consumer know what is being done, and makes it fun to be able to find out the results yourself.
Skills that have been learned throughout this process have made this process so much easier. We have learned more on the coding side, how to design the circuits/systems, and just more general knowledge of sensors and how they work. It has also been easier learning about the Particle argons and how they can connect to form different types of IOT’s from all around the world, and how they work.CIRCUIT DESIGN PICTURES
