Data Logging with Timestamp Using EDU PICO

Data Logging with Timestamp Using EDU PICO

What is Data Logger?

A data logger is a device or system that records data over time. It's like a digital diary that automatically keeps track of information such as temperature, humidity, pressure, or any other parameter you want to monitor.

It typically consists of sensors to measure the data, a storage mechanism to save the data (like an SD card or internal memory), and a processor to control the logging process. Data loggers are widely used in various fields such as environmental monitoring, industrial processes, scientific research, and more. They help track changes over time, analyze trends, and provide valuable insights into how conditions evolve.

 In this tutorial,We will learn how to use Circuitpython to read the Raspberry Pi Pico W internal temperature data with timestamp and write it to a file on the Circuitpython drive.This will enable you to create your own temperature data logger.
