A proof of concept for a Ruuvi enabled windvane.
|The Bluetooth reporting Ruuvi Environmental sensor includes an accelerometer which reports not only the movement of the Ruuvi, but also it's orientation. Using a simple gear set (provided by my 40 year old son) to change the revolving action in the verticle axis to rotating of the Z axis. Including the X axis orientation the position of the wind vane can be resolved.|

Notice that as the wind vane revolves the Ruuvi rotates correspondingly.
