View Full Version : Need advice

09-22-2008, 06:03 AM
Hey guys i was wondering if anyone could help me out a bit. I am trying to design an electric motorized longboard and what I want to do is put two pressure sensors in the trucks that are hooked up to the basic stamp chip and then the chip outputs the current to the motor so depending how you stand on the board it will vary the speed. ·I have used basic stamp in high school but I don’t quite remember how it works. I was wondering if you could tell me what components I need to buy to make this work. I also need to know if the iLoad mini can take over 200 lbs or maybe there·more suitable pressure sensor.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Start by going to the pencil icon in your post and changing your title to something more descriptive of your actual question. Then Google strain guage and load sensors for a start.
