There are many ways to measure force, and major differences among force measurement devices. To select the right technology, engineers need to consider a number of application-specific factors, including accuracy requirements, proper output range, and ease of integration.
Our study guide includes:
Clear explanation of the various types of force measurements, including tension, compression, and shear
Comparison of various force sensing technologies such as load cells, piezoresistive, and capacitive sensors
The role of circuits in measuring resistance change
Discussion of issues including power consumption, size, cost, and durability
The background of thin and flexible tactile sensors
