Raspberry Pi + Wireless Pressure Sensors + Harddrive usage

Mon Dec 10, 2018 7:24 am

Hi, I am using a hardrive of around 500gb which which is partitioned in 3 parts. I want to use the hard-drive with my raspberry pi as memory storage as well as use one of the partitioned drive to work as RAM.

As my company is at remote site and I want to use my mesh network of wireless pressure sensors uses in gas tanks to test the atmospheric levels which are far from the the gateway receiver (connected with raspberry pi) around 20 to 30 meters from each other.

Point is I want to store the sensor data in CSV format (for around 2 weeks) with good processing speed to monitor the data at same time,
till the time we are not able to recover the internet network here,
Any suggestion to make it work will be a great help.

Note: I am using Raspberry Pi 3 B+ model and already install the Raspbian OS in 8 GB SD card

Not quite sure what help you require :oops: :?: :oops:

Are you stuck on:

1) Configuring the Pi and disk?
2) Linking the sensors to the Pi?
3) Getting data from the sensors into the Pi?
4) Storing the data on disk?
5) Building a redundant system so you do not loose data?
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...

I am trying to connect hardrive and save the wireless sensor data in CSV format which must be useful to send the data to real-time database in firebase whenever internet connection or WiFi hotspot will be in range.
