Microcontroller-Based Remote Weather Monitoring Station With Flood Monitoring System Full Documentation
Weather monitoring plays a critical role in hazard mitigation in the country as the equipment can help save lives and properties particularly during typhoons and floods. Hence, Surigao City has only one PAGASA station and this may be susceptible to errors in which it relatively affects the reliability of weather report. They forecast a wide range of area only and do not have flood monitoring, thus, this greatly affects to the monitoring of floods in a particular barangay. The whole purpose of this study is to design, develop, and implement a MCU-Based Weather Monitoring Station with Flood Monitoring System; a system which provides two main stations, the server station installed in city hall of Surigao City and the remote station in Brgy. Washington. The system is composed of sensors such as temperature, humidity, dew point, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, rainfall, ambient light, and flood level for monitoring. PIC16F887 microcontroller will act as the main controller of the system. The system sends the gathered data by the sensors to be passed through and visualize to the server station, a Personal Computer (PC). Separate tests conducted by the group and by PAGASA resulted to a better accuracy and lesser errors. Although the main purposes of the device were achieved, improvements are still necessary.
Climate and weather are vitally important in human’s field of activities such as agriculture, aviation, transportation, leisure time, and any other aspects related to weather conditions. The advantages of having this weather monitoring system are that the exact outside temperature, humidity level, pressure, dew, available light, wind speed and direction are given without having to rely on internet or television weather broadcasts that only give readings for the general vicinity around the nearest large city or transportation hub. It has also a flood level monitoring that locates the affected barangays caused by floods. This system will be designed to take readings over a specified period of time particularly a delay time interval and then transmit the average value of those readings for each sensor to the microprocessor, located in each barangay of Surigao City and display the results to Personal Computer (PC). This information is very convenient and useful for picking out clothing, deciding hair styles, and allowing for traffic delays, avoiding environmental catastrophes, all from a simple display that can be mounted in the central location of the home from their personal computer for everyone to see.
