This summer, ECE grad student Nikhil Patil programmed an Ardunio temperature sensor network that updates streams of values into MySQL.  Using RStudio/Shiny, he programmed an application that queried the latest data from the database, and spatial interpolated a set of sensor values using Inverse Distance Weighting to create a heat map. The program continuously pulls the latest data every 5 seconds and generated a new heat map.
