MARB will be equipped with a bunch of sensors to sense time, humidity, temperature, barometric pressure, ambient light, gas concentration, orientation and acceleration. So far I have tested a DHT11 based hygrometer, a TEMT6000 ambient light sensor and a MiCS-5524 based gas sensor.

The gas sensor can easily detect an open bottle of ammonia solution.

After tinkering a while with many different sensors, I decided to use for now following sensors:
