Arduino Contact less Tank Monitor, help with programing?

Hi,

we have assembled a Tanksensor (NMEA 0183) with WiFi according to this manual (in German)
https://open-boat-projects.org…/Funk...ensor-deV2.pdf
Arduino 1.8.19 is installed & the wemos-d1-mini-pro board has been installed and is recognized too.

The sensor lights up constantly blé after few initial blé flashes, the Wemos is flashing once when 12v are applied.
So far that seems right.

Wi-Fi of the Wemos does not show yet, which might be due to missing libraries.

I have an issue with installing the necessary libraries from the library manager.
According to the instructions I shall install the following:

ESP8266WiFi.h https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino

DNSServer.h Standard Arduino IDE

ESP8266WebServer.h Standard Arduino IDE

WiFiManager.h
https://github.com/tzapu/WiFiManager

WiFiUdp.h Standard Arduino IDE

SoftwareSerial.h Standard Arduino IDE

MovingAverage.h Standard Arduino IDE

DS1603L.h

https://github.com/tzapu/WiFiManager

https:///github.com/wvmarle/Arduino_DS1603L

When I search for those from the Library Manager in the Arduino software, I get a lot of results but not those specific files.

Is there someone over here in our forum who can help and perhaps supply the compiled binary I need to Flash on my Wemos Arduino?

I guess I can do the calibration than and integrate it with OpenCPN.
Our tank is simple, it's a vertical stainless 120l drum.
We run OpenCPN on a PC with windows 10.

I also asked for help on the German forum, they were kind and helpful, but the solution is pending.
I'm very very much a newbie when it comes to Arduino programming.
We only need and want our "budget" style contact less tank monitor to run.

Appreciate your help!!

Franziska

Anyone here who can help with this?

The issue is more about choosing the correct libraries out of the library rather than actual programming.

Thanks.
