  • Programmer
  • PCB Designer
Website More info here

Overview:

“SEAD” is a low cost environmental data acquisition system that allows for real time data collection through a system of sensors placed throughout fields. The system will collect data at any given set interval and send the data to a main system where the information can be uploaded to a web interface.

Main componets:
STM32L476RG
Xbee SX
MAX485
