BME280 Humidity and Pressure Sensor

Overview

This sample application periodically reads temperature, pressure and humidity data from the first available device that implements SENSOR_CHAN_AMBIENT_TEMP, SENSOR_CHAN_PRESS, and SENSOR_CHAN_HUMIDITY. This sample checks the sensor in polling mode (without interrupt trigger).

Building and Running

This sample application uses an BME280 sensor connected to a board via I2C. Connect the sensor pins according to the connection diagram given in the bme280 datasheet at page 38.
