Temperature Sensor

This project introduces students to the operation, interface theory, and features of a digital temperature sensor and the I2C communication protocol. Students complete an activity to build an interface circuit, use LabVIEW and myRIO to collect temperature data and set a temperature alert limit. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the temperature sensor, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
