We split the team into two: hardware and software. The hardware team started to assemble the components

Then we’re ready to connect ESPectro to the circuit and sensor

We compared the circuit with the one that has been tested and verified

It took lots of retrying, switching components and we tried every solution possible and think of every source of errors
