# Content of the box

1. Arduino & Breadboard: All of the senseBox experiments are based on the main board. It consists of an Arduino Uno microcontroller, a senseBox shield, as well as a breadboard. The breadboard enables plug & play interconnection of electronic components on its many conductive lines. It has two pairs of vertical lines (marked with + and -), and 30 horizontal lines with 5 connectors each (marked a to e, resp. f to j).

The senseBox shield is an Arduino extension board, that is plugged in on top of the Arduino connectors. It provides a microSD-card slot for data storage, a real-time clock, as well as additional I²C connectors. The RTC will be enabled as soon as the battery is inserted into the shield.

2. Power supply: During programming and experiments, you can provide power to the microcontroller via the included USB cable. Once you have completed your project, you may run the Arduino without a computer attached by using the included power supply.

3. Batterypack: A batterypack allows you to use your senseBox on the go! This is especially useful if you want to do measurements at multiple different places.

4. Ethernet- or WiFi-Shield: The senseBox includes another shield for network connectivity. Depending on the senseBox version, this is a red ethernet shield or a blue WiFi-shield. By attaching this to the arduino, you can upload your data to the openSenseMap for example.

5. Wires: Besides the USB-B cable, there are many jumper wires with mixed male and female connectors included. These allow you to build your circuits on the breadboard in no time! Also there is a cable for the batterypack included.

6. Sensors and electronic components: The following list shows all the sensors and other electronic parts that are needed for the experiments:

• Air temperature and humidity sensor (HDC1008)
• Air pressure and temperature sensor (BMP280)
• Optical infrared distance sensor (GP2YA)
• Ultrasound distance sensor (HC-SR04)
• Light intensity sensor (TSL45315)
• UV-A light intensity sensor (VEML6070)
• Photo resistor
