I wanna tackle a project with position sensing; I'm thinking of using hall effect sensors but i'm not sure what would be best (specifically what hardware I should use).
I want to be able to see what amount of weight my air mattress can support. I'm thinking of putting sensors on the bottom of the bed and on the support surface. Then i'm going to add weight until the bed touches the ground.
Specifically, i want to be able to see how much weight results in a vertical displacement, until the weight (or a person's body) touches the floor.
Do you think hall effect sensors would be my best bet? Any specific hardware recommendations?
