Executive Summary

This project involves setting up sensors of different kind around our campus (IIT Mandi) and collecting the data for further analysis. The sensors are of various kinds like temperature, pressure, altitude, anemometer, rainfall, gas sensors. There will be multiple sensors of each type , collecting data after every few minutes and then going off to sleep. The data collected by sensors is send to a server over WiFi and most reasonable values are selected and graph plots are displayed over the internet on a website or web-portal.

A simple prototype has been built that has been gathering temperature and pressure data on a Beagle Bone and logging the data on a separate server since 18-Aug-2015 by Mr.Mark. The current data can be seen here.

The data received from different sensors widely differ from the actual values.


If you have hardware, consider Small Build, Big Execuition for ideas on the final packaging.

If you have wiring, include Frizing diagrams.

Installation Instructions

Give step by step instructions on how to install your project.

  • Include your github path as a link like this to the read-only git site:
  • Be sure your is includes an up-to-date and clear description of your project so that someone who comes across you git repository can quickly learn what you did and how they can reproduce it.
  • Include a file called which installs all the files/packages needed. These are the things that only need to be done one.
  • Include a file called which initializes everything. These are the things that need to be done every time you reboot the Bone.
  • Include a Makefile for your code if you use a compiled language.
  • Include any additional packages installed via apt-get.
  • Include kernel mods.
  • If there is extra hardware needed, include links to where it can be obtained.

User Instructions

Once everything is installed, how do you use the program? Give details here, so if you have a long user manual, link to it here.


Here is where you brag about what your project can do.

Include a YouTube demo.

Theory of Operation

Give a high level overview of the structure of your software. Are you using GStreamer? Show a diagram of the pipeline. Are you running multiple tasks? Show what they do and how they interact.

Work Breakdown

List the major tasks in your project and who did what.

Also list here what doesn't work yet and when you think it will be finished and who is finishing it.

Future Work

Suggest addition things that could be done with this project.


Give some concluding thoughts about the project. Suggest some future additions that could make it even more interesting.
