Building a Scale from Scratch
Purpose: Learn to build a scale using knowledge from Statics class
This scale was built by learning a variety of skills including:
Coding Arduino IDE
Producing "noise-free-resolution code"
Applying wheatstone bridges
Load cell building
First, pins were soldered to the Arduino mini board and HX711 board. On the breadboard, the boards were attached to a potentiometer. The set up was then attached to a load cell. Arduino code was optimized to be noise-free and calibrated.
