C/C++ on Intel Edison/Galileo – part5:Temperature sensor

In this blog post, we will explore the ways of interfacing a temperature sensor using both mraa and upm.

The Grove temperature sensor that we are going to use is a class of transducer know as the thermistor. It is called so because it's resistance (the 'istor') part is controlled by the thermal energy ('therm' part) applied on the sensor. We are going to use the Grove temperature sensor.

We have already learned from the previous blog post that with ADC, we can measure the change in the resistance of a device connected to the analog input of Edison/Galileo.
