Get/Put temperature sensors (TP)

The temperature command reports the temperature of the Cricket unit. It is also used to enable the temperature sensor in the first place. When the temperature sensor is enabled, the embedded Cricket software calculates distances using the speed of sound at the ambient temperature. The temperature is returned in the units specified by the UN command (Section 2.2.20). By default the temperature is specified in degrees Celsius.

By sending ``P TP 1/0'', you can enable(1)/disable(0) the temperature sensor.

Example (enable the temperature sensors):
P TP 1<return>
TP 1
