I thougt on a force sensor on the pedal, but it doesn't work.
to measure torque, you have to compare it to a resistance
you will also need to measure what the angle between the pedal and shaft is somehow. So when your pedal is all the way forward the force on the pedal is giving maximum torque. When the pedal is all the way down or all the way up you are producing no torque at all.
Nick is just trying to say that your drive train has to resist your foot otherwise you aren't producing any torque
hi, I want to put a torque sensor on my bike, but it's too much ironworks and too expensive to put a rotative sensor. does any one has a idea? I thougt on a force sensor on the pedal, but it doesn't work.thank youPilou
If you put the bike on a rack with some resistive things on the rear wheel
