    Abstract

    This paper presents the development of a prototype weather station to measure the following weather data: air temperature, relative humidity, dew point, wind speed, and rainfall. The weather station, which has been designed for remote operation, performs automatic or unmanned measurements of weather data and transmits it wirelessly to a PC for logging and display by means of a graphical user interface. The remote station is powered using solar energy through a battery which also stores charge for a 24-hour operation of the system. Experimental results show that the measured data is quite consistent with those obtained by similar weather measurement devices.
