Abstract


In this paper a new approach to utilize technology in a practical and meaningful manner within a smart weather station system is presented. This system is primary intended for use in agriculture and meteorological stations, but its application is not limited here. Weather parameters observing plays an important role in human live, so the observing, collecting and storing of information about the temporal dynamics of weather changes is very important. The primary goal is to design a low cost smart system for storing data obtained by measuring various physical parameters in the atmosphere without human involvement. Realized system use Internet of Things technology to storage measured results, and allows the user to access the results anytime and anywhere. In this research Internet of Things is used as technology for storing measured data, because this technology is an advanced and efficient solution for connecting the things to the Internet and to connect the entire world of things in a network. The proposed smart weather station system is based on the following steps: direct environment sensing, measuring and storing data and then allowing user to customize the settings. This research will present the design and implementation of a practical smart weather station system, which can be further extended. The system is based on: group of embedded sensors, Peripheral Interface Microcontroller (PIC) microcontroller as a core and server system and wireless internet using Global System for Mobile Telecommunications (GSM) module with General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) as a communication protocol.
