Room Temperature Detection with Galileo Gen 1 and Grove Kit.

Intel Galileo is the first in a line of Arduino-certified development boards based on Intel x86 architecture and is designed for the maker and education communities.”

The GROVE Starter Kit of GROVE System is a modular, safe and easy to use group of items that allow you to minimize the effort required to get started with micro controller-based experimentation and learning.

In this project I’ll be helping in setting up the project as well as upload a modified code from here on to a Windows 10 operation system.


  1. So start with downloading the Arduino IDE for Intel Galileo and the Temperature Sensor code.
  2. Open the code in the IDE, select Board as Intel Galileo and Port based on the Port visible in Device Manager, accessed via Win+R and then writing devmgmt.msc. NOTE:In Windows 10, Galileo is recognized as a USB serial Device.
  3. Once the code is uploaded, the LCD shows an initial purple light (because of color R, color G, and colorB being set at 255 each).
  4. As soon the Temperature Sensor, senses the room temperature, which it checks for every 5 seconds, the following 2 conditions take place:


I. Temperature is less than 27 degrees.

Color changes to Blue and the message showed is: ” It’s cool at: ”

II. Temperature is greater than 27 degrees.

Color changes to Red and the message showed is: ” It’s warm at: ”
