I am trying to use force sensing resistors (FSR) to measure force for walking analysis. Through use of an op amp I can get the sensors to give an output from 0-250 pounds. However this only gives me a resolution of 0.25 lb. I only need to measure values around the 200 lb mark. Is there a way I can adjust the code to make the readings only occur at a higher weight range? I have already thought about using an If/Else loop but I'm afraid that I will loose the full range of the 10-bit value. Has anyone tried something similar to this?
Thanks for your time,
