MeteoTracker - portable weather station for data acquisition on the move

Recommended Posts

 

Hi everyone!

MeteoTracker is a small (computer mouse size), portable weather station that attaches to the car rooftop (or any other vehicle) by its magnetic base and measures on the move ( with very high measurement speed), temperature, humidity, dew-point, thermal inversion index and pressure/altitude. 

The MeteoTracker App every few meters records, visualizes, geo-tags and sends the measured weather data to the cloud. 

The data are real-time visualized in the user smartphone and on a web platform, where they can be analyzed in depth by map, graphs and numeric format.

The mini-station implements a patented system for solar radiation correction (RECS, Radiation Error Correction System), so that temperature measurements are very accurate even under strong solar radiation at very low speed.

In turn, the absence of shielding structures allows the sensors ample exposure to ventilation and, therefore, very high measurement speed. This is essential for the correct measurement of sharp thermal variations typically encountered on the move.

The operative range is -40 °C (-40 °F)  125 °C (257 °F).

Here is a video on how a MeteoTracker session works  

 

Having completed the testing phase, which involved both enthusiasts and professionals, we've decided to move on to production.

We'll leave you with some images of the MeteoTracker app and  web platform and photos of the weather station and information on its functionalities.

You can also analyze several of the sessions recorded by the MeteoTracker community at this link: app.platform.com.

Below is the link to a session done on January 1st 2020 in the Bavarian Forest with temperature variation ratio up to 10.2 °C over 420 m distance.

MeteoTracker is a project carried out by IoTopon, an innovative startup based in Italy and at the moment there more than 50 units in the field with more 1 million weathepoints already collected.

You can support the project on Kickstarter: https://bit.ly/37sOkAg
