Hey fellow farmers,
I’m working on making it possible to upgrade the Food Computer 1.0 to 2.0.
So far, I’ve tested the new software on the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, with Arduino Mega. I’ve also configured and tested firmware for 3 of the 6 sensors on the v1:
[x] dht22 - air temp / humidity [x] gc0011 - co2 [ ] dFrobot - ph [ ] dFrobot - ec [x] ds18b20 - water temp [ ] tsl2561 - light
You can see the progress here:
This is where we could use help. We need firmware for the other 3.
Mostly this means digging up sample code for the sensor, wrapping it in a class and writing a manifest file. The sample code is often available at AdaFruit. There is a repo full of firmware examples that show how this is done.
You’ll want to install openag_brain on Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. This script takes care of configuring a development environment.
Totally happy to mentor anyone who wants to take this on.
