C Eclipse project reading temperature and humidity on Beaglebone

After the cross building and DHT11 sensor setup on Beaglebone Black

Remote debug on Beaglebone

Sensors on Beaglebone

Temperature and humidity reading on Beaglebone in python

now we show how to create a C project , using  the C source code available with the Adafruit library

Adafruit Python DHT Sensor Library

Using Eclipse, we create a project for the reading of our sensor. It calls the functions in the C code of the Adafruit library. These sources are imported into the Eclipse project

Dht sensor Projectand using the sample C code  dhtSensor.c,  which contains the main C program, we read the sensors by calling the funtions available in Adafruit C sources; the usage is  similar to what seen in Python.


 it shows the help instructions

To read the DHT11 sensor on pin P8_11 we have to run

The output is the following
