I am a researcher at the Spanish Institute of Oceanography, we have a project starting now that plans to teach schoolkids (12-13yo) to build marine sensors (basically a temperature and fluorescence data logger) and deploy them at three local harbours and onboard three boats/vessels.
Our idea was to use arduino + shields (solar+GPRS/GPS+SD+RTC) to build the devices. Our plans were to use these parts:
My questions are,
– what are the pros and cons of using a board that integrates the different components vs the arduino + shields versions?
– anyone has got experience with the Autonomo board?
