I need to test each of the sensors to ensure they work and their thresholds ie. voltage and Arduino serial data.
Here is the Arduino code i found to help me test the flex sensor
and using the following Voltage Divider where R1 = Flex Sensor (25 – 45Kohm), and R2 = 22kohm resistor
and using the following formula, calculated that the voltage should vary from approx 2.34v and 1.64v when Vin = 5v
and using the serial monitor in the arduino sorfware noted that the data varied from 260 when the sensor was straight to 130 when the sensor was bent.
A rough test showing that the sensor worked. The same was repeated with all 6 sensor to ensure no defects.
