Please download required files for this code

Part 3: Temperature Sensors

In this lesson we learn how to use BMP280 to measure temperature and display it on LCD1602 as Celsius, fahrenheit and Kelvin. There is separate code for LCD2004

  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.
