Case 05: Water Temperature Detection
6. Case 05: Water Temperature Detection#
Fishes are poikilotherm whose body temperature changes as the ambient water temperature changes, thus, the water temperature plays a vital role in the growth of fishes.
Dectect the water temperature with the DS18B20 sensor and display them on OLED screen.
6.5. Hardware Connection#
Connect DS18B20 to P1 and the OLED to IIC on IoT:bit.
6.6. Software Programming#
Click “Advanced” in the MakeCode to see more choices.
For programming, we need to add a package: click “Extensions” at the bottom of the MakeCode drawer and search with “iot-environment-kit” in the dialogue box to download it.
Notice: If you met a tip indicating that some codebases would be deleted due to incompatibility, you may continue as the tips say or create a new project in the menu.
Initialize the OLED screen as 128×64.
Set DS18B20 sensor to connect to P1 and save the returned value as variable “Temp”.
Clear the OLED screen and display the water temperature.
The OLED displays the water temperature and refreshes every 5 seconds.
