I am new to arduino in every way. I will soon be attempting to produce a set of 4 wireless scales, and would like any guidance available. Each scale will consist of a 15" x 15" x 1" aluminum pad, hollowed out, with a strain gage glued to the inside. This will be my load cell. I have ordered the strain gauges, voltage amplifier boards, several NRF24L01+ transceivers, and an Atmega 328 arduino with a 2.4" TFT touch screen display. I would like for all 4 scale pads to transfer data to a wireless handheld display unit that will simultaneously display the weight on each scale, as well as display "left side percentage" and "rear percentage" I will also need a tare function on the touch screen display. These scales will be used for my Dirt Late Model racecar. there are some companies that sell a very similar product that starts around $1800. I figure if I can make this work I will have only about $300 involved.
Will this work? What other hardware do I need? and is there any videos out there of anyone doing this exact same thing?
