About this project

Current core body temperature measurement methods are invasive, inaccurate, & potentially expensive. A low cost and noninvasive solution is a medical patch that continuously monitors temperature and sends alerts to phone when temperature reaches threshold. This is made possible with a programmable high-accuracy digital temperature sensor such as Texas Instruments TMP117.

Code

Arduino code for reading temperature from TMP117Arduino
This is the Arduino Code used to read temperature from the TMP116/TMP117 and display it on the serial monitor
#include <Wire.h>

void setup() 
{
  Wire.begin();
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() 
{
  Wire.requestFrom(0x48,2);//read 2 bytes from register at address 48 

  while(Wire.available()) { //checks if there is data to get
    int Byte = Wire.read(); //reads the first Byte
    Byte = Byte << 8; // shifts the first byte by 8 making it the high byte value
    Byte += Wire.read();  // reads the next byte and appends to the first byte
    double Temp = Byte*.0078125; //converts the data to temp
    Serial.println(Temp, 7); // displays the data

  delay(1000);
}
