Measuring room or object temperatures with the DS18B20. It is a digital component wich does all the work for you. You only need to COMMAND it do the measurement. A short moment later you can request 2 bytes containing the temperature.

Of course there is a protocal wich says how to communicate. See 1-Wire and the DS18B20 datasheet.
