Description:

This is a very Detailed step by step Tutorial on How to make your own Real-time Weather Station using Arduino, DHT11 temperature and Humidity Sensor and Visual Basic .net (vb.net). In this tutorial, you will learn how to read sensors values and then display these values on a Graph. This project is basically based on how to display the sensors data on graphs.



In this tutorial, the famous dht11 Temperature and Humidity sensor will be used to access the temperature and humidity values. Then we will use these values to make a real-time weather station and display the temperature and humidity values on the Graph.

In this Tutorial, we will also cover the complete circuit diagram explanation, components soldering, Arduino Uno programming, visual basic application designing, and programming, and finally testing. This Tutorial will help you in the future, in designing advanced level projects.

DHT11 Temperature and Humidity Sensor:

sensors data on graphs

As we know that dht11 Temperature and Humidity Sensor has four pins, pin number1 is the Vdd power supply and can be connected with 5v. pin number2 is the data, pin number3 is not connected, and pin number4 is connected with the ground.

This is the basic connection diagram of the dht11 temperature and humidity sensor. This circuit diagram is designed in cadesoft eagle, if you want to learn how to make schematics and PCB, then watch my Tutorial “Click Here”.

So as you know that the dht11 sensor has 4 pins, and out of 4 pins only the 3 pins are used. As you can see in the circuit diagram the pin number 3 is not connected. Pin number1 is connected with Arduino’s 5volt. Pin2 will be connected with pin12 of the Arduino. You can also see a 10K resistor, which is connected between pin1 and pin2. Pin number 3 is not connected and pin number 4 will be connected with the Arduino’s GND.

  1. Dear Engr,

    Many thanks your tutor, but when I use your method, my text box just receive first data and then the text box can not still work, can you teach me how to save this problem?

    Best Regards,

  2. for me, it works best. but if you don’t know how to handle the timer. then don’t use the timer, just use the textchanged event. there are so many other tutorials available on my channel, explaining how to split the string.
