The purpose of this tutorial is to explain how to get measurements using sensors available in the STM32L4 Discovery kit: a step-by-step configuration for a temperature sensor of B-L475E-IOT01A will be described.
1. Sensors usage with B-L475E-IOT01A
1.1 Hardware description
1.2 Example: Get temperature values using the HTS221 sensor and display them on a terminal

2. Appendix: Porting an AC6 example to STM32CubeIDE
2.1 Hardware description
2.2 Example: Get temperature values using the HTS221 sensor and display them on terminal (Porting from AC6 to STM32CubeIDE)

5 Step 5: Build an IOT system
