Hi guys & girls,
I have a uni project that requires me to install pressure sensors on the impeller blades of a rotating centrifugal fan. Pressure readings need to be taken at different locations of the impeller. Given that this is a rotating part. The only method i can think of is mounting the arduino in the centre powered by battery and have it wirelessly transmit to a LCD display so that i can record the readings while the fan is operating. Is this a feasible idea? I'm new to arduino and wonder how hard it is to set up the programming. I've had a search around for some pressure sensor modules, and the ARDUINO PRESSURE SENSOR MODULE BMP280 seems reasonably small enough to fit onto the impeller. What other components will i should i gather to complete this?
