I am trying to read the values from a Force Sensitive Resistor with Arduino. Actually, I am already reading them, but it only works if I use a 10 Ohm or lower resistor and it really heats up. (See attached schematic). If I try to use a higher resistor, Arduino continuously reads 1023, as if there was no FSResistor. How can I read the values of the FSR without having to use a 10Ohm resistor that heats up?
Note that the FSR, without applying any force has 50 Ohms resistance, and when applying pressure, it goes down to 5-10 Ohms.
