Open source data logger for biodiversity research

Posted on Friday, March 7th, 2014 in open source, sensors by the machinegeek


Ed Baker of the Natural History Museum, London, UK, has published a paper outlining his build of an open source hardware data logger for scientific purposes. “Proprietary data loggers can be expensive – for example a three channel data logging system is available from Alphatemp for £465.00. Such costs make large scale deployment of such systems unaffordable for all but well funded projects. This project aims to create an open source and open hardware data logger making use of the widely available Arduino prototyping platform.”

The 19 page report in PDF can be found at PenSoft publishers.

Project details can be found on Ed Baker’s blog, with the Arduino code posted on GitHub.
