Data Logging

To break this project into manageable steps I’ve decided to make a first (in the boat) goal to record telemetry from the boat:

  • apparent wind angle
  • apparent wind speed
  • boat speed
  • GPS coordinates
It will be important to be able to consistently record these values to calibrate the sensors.
To that end I ordered a data logger shield to use with my Arduino UNO. With it I can record all the sensors on the boat. I have a bluetooth SiRF III data logger lying around somewhere that I’ll also put in the boat. Both the shield and GPS time stamp and output to CVS so I should be able to get reasonable accurate telemetry.
I’ll also need to find a wind vane / anemometer with trusted data output to compare to mine.
