Temperature and Pressure Sensor (BMP180)

This script measures temperature and barometric pressure using the BMP180 sensor. The calculations for the BMP180 to take the data and calibration constants and determine the atmospheric pressure is too large for Lua, and is completed through a python script running on a PC instead.

Below is the BMP180 as a part of the Adafruit 10DOF board. A BMP180, with the appropriate passive components, will function identically to the BMP180 on the 10DOF board.

Below is the python script used to take the calibration constants and print the useful data. It is based off of page 15 of this datasheet.
