I’m happy to announce that my new Arduino wind meter shield is ready. I had posted the design as well as a photo or two of the naked board in my last post but now I’ve placed and soldered all the numerous components and it’s ready to go.

So now all my custom hardware boils down to this easy-to-use Arduino UNO shield. Just stack it on top of your Arduino, attach four ultrasonic transducers and you’re ready to go.
I have high expectations for this shield and hope I won’t be disappointed. I’ll check on the weekend when I’ll first power it up and see if it’s any good. I’ll let you know.
