Abstract: The measurement of various atmospheric parameters is of outmost importance, not only for the weather forecasting process but also for future references. A smart, robust and cheap system is implemented which can not only measure the various atmospheric parameters like light, temperature, humidity, wind speed and atmospheric pressure but can also transmit the acquired data to a personal computer using radio frequency based wireless communication. This paper proposes the design and development of such system. The system can be considered to be consisting of two modules. One is the transmitter module and the other is receiver module. The use of microcontroller and various sensors make the system operational in real time. The acquired data is displayed on the transmitting terminal with the help of a LCD and on the personal computer with the help of a customized Visual Basic interface.
