Here are the requirements for the Datalogging shield project (project #1):
- Collect data from at least 2 sensors
- write the data at regular intervals to the SD card, collect it in a comma separated variable file (*.CSV) that can be imported into excel.
- display the data to your LCD screen
- have the background color of the screen change somehow. Either from the data being collected (green background for nominal values, red for warning), or through the use of a button.
Step 1: Parts
If you don't want to buy the stackable header pins for the Datalogger shield you can use some way like how I modified the Datalogger shield in step 2 so that it could be placed in the bread board.
