With the possible inclusion of FSR sesnors in this project a control method needs to be developed to correlate the readings from the sensors with tangible values.
There are many methods already existing that I could use but they require specialist equipment that is quite costly.
I have decided that the simplest way to obtain and quantify the force readings will be to take an object of known mass (confirmed by weighing it on a scales) then placing it on the FSR. It must also be noted that ensuring the base area of the object does not exceed that of the sensor is vital to ensure its true mass is read.
I believe this method to be the simplest and most efficient way to assign force values to digital units within my time and financial constraints.
