Student Assistant III at NCAR – The National Center for Atmospheric Research
May 2015 – December 2015 (8 months)
I was a part of the ‘Pi in the Sky’ project at NCAR. My responsibilities included creating the embedded
weather sensors and driver program suitable for the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. The project worked towards
building a Raspberry Pi II distributed cluster system which emulates the functions of a weather station. The
nodes in the cluster collects weather data from sensors, formats the enormous quantity of data into a standard
format and transmits the data onto a cloud. The cloud organizes the weather data onto a database and served
as a host to a web server. The web server, built using Drupal, provided internet-based access of weather data
for analysis.
