This project is about creating an airplane instrument (such as an altimeter) for a flight simulator running on a PC. It is implemented using a 2×16 character Text LCD display and an mbed microcontroller connected to the PC using a USB cable.

Tiny temperature logger with Google Docs data upload

This project uses a TMP102 temperature sensor, an mbed microcontroller and a Python script to make temperature measurements, and add them as new rows to a Google Docs spreadsheet. The data can either be plotted directly with gnuplot or the Google Docs spreadsheet can be visualised using a time series chart gadget.
