Pressure Sensor MS5611
The pressure sensor selected for the project is the Measurement Specialties MS5611. It is sensor that measures the pressure and temperature in 24-bit using either I2C / SPI. For this project the I2C interface will be used connected directly to the Raspberry Pi. The pressure and temperature together with the reference sea level pressure can be used to calculate the altitude of the sensor.
Obtaining the I2C sensor
