Part 3: Temperature Sensors

In this lesson we learn how to use BMP280 to measure temperature and display it on the Serial monitor. We have more lectures and code for this sensor where we display temperature on LCD display and 4 digit LED seven segment display.

***************************************************************************
  This is a library for the BMP280 humidity, temperature & pressure sensor

  Designed specifically to work with the Adafruit BMEP280 Breakout
  ----> http://www.adafruit.com/products/2651

  These sensors use I2C or SPI to communicate, 2 or 4 pins are required
  to interface.

  Adafruit invests time and resources providing this open source code,
  please support Adafruit andopen-source hardware by purchasing products
  from Adafruit!
