Hello Arduino Community!
For a university project, I am working on an interactive dance costume. We are using 6 conductive pieces of self knitted sensors and measure the values with parallel ohm meters. We got it working once in the beginning as we measured the max and low resistance the fabrics gave us and used the average as a resistor value. We were able to improve the results a little by adding a capacitor behind the resistor. However, it seems that the resistance of these fabrics differs quite a lot (humidity, sweat of dancers maybe corrosion?). I am absolutely unsure how we could improve the range that is measured. Are there any commercially available ohm meters that can be used with Arduino? Or how do I know which resistance and capacitance value could work robustly? I have almost no knowledge in electronic circuits as I am a Human Computer Interaction student: any help would be appreciated!
