Abstract


The paper presents the results of a study with temperature measurements using low cost sensors connected to an Arduino microcontroller. To perform the study, three sensors widely used for monitoring environmental conditions with Arduino. The selected sensors were the LM35DZ (analog sensor) and DHT11 and DHT22 (digital sensors). The LM35DZ sensor is a sensor known to be an analog sensor that has linear temperature response with voltage. The DHT11 sensor measures temperature and humidity simultaneously.  To measure temperature the DHT11 sensor uses a temperature-sensitive resistor and has a measurement range from 0 to 50 °C, with an uncertainty ± 2% ° C. The DHT22 has a measurement range  -40 to 80 ° C and an uncertainty ± 1% ° C.  Simultaneous temperature measurements with the three sensors showed good performance in indoor situations, showing the maximum and minimum temperatures of a daily temperature cycle.
