What is a Force Sensitive Resistor? FSRs are sensors that allow you to detect physical pressure, squeezing and weight. They are simple to use and low cost. FSR's ...
How to measure force/pressure with an FSR As we've said, the FSR's resistance changes as more pressure is applied. When there is no pressure, the sensor looks like ...
Here are just a few examples of projects that use FSRs! Interfacing with Flash (or Processing would work well too!) to change the screen display Control LEDs (its ...
The easiest way to measure a resistive sensor is to connect one end to Power and the other to a pull-down resistor to ground. Then the point between ...
he sketch below will take the analog voltage reading and use that to determine how bright the red LED is. The harder you press on the FSR, the ...
This code doesn't do any calculations, it just prints out what it interprets as the amount of pressure in a qualitative manner. For most projects, this is pretty ...
This Arduino sketch that assumes you have the FSR wired up as above, with a 10Kohm pull down resistor and the sensor is read on Analog 0 pin. ...
Because FSR's are basically resistors, its possible to use them even if you don't have any analog pins on your microcontroller (or if say you want to connect ...
