I’m starting here a few articles about our experiences in datalogging wind data and generic sensor data.
Since the VentolONE team origins, before everythings started, I knew the first thing you need to know concerning wind turbines is how much wind is available, and which kind: constant, gusts, etc.
In early days in 2006 I didn’t know so much about microcontrollers: I had just a few knowledge in electronics coming from my master degree in mechanical engineering. Not so much, really.
After some tries with some friends of mine I understood I had to build by myself a datalogging system, the way I wanted it to be:
- open-source (code)
- open-hardware (where possible)
- simple, everyone could build it
- reliable, not a funny joke
- able to send data from wherever to wherever
Now I can say: here we are!
As far as you know, VentolONE team had some trouble with its start-up, founded and closed in one year, without producing nothing more than disappointment and quarrels.
Well, during that period I did something, keeping on my interest in datalogging data from Africa.
Following the attemps with Arduino Yun (may 2014) I tried new ways, cheaper and promising.
Now it is time to write it down where I finally came!
