Hi,

I am doing a project regarding pressure distribution on seats: that is when a person sitting leans towards right for example more pressure is applied on the right side in seat. I need a sensor suitable for this. I am not sure if pressure sensor is ideal. Can anyone suggest sensor.

Thank you
Skumar

I would try maybe using four of these:

Those combined with simple comparison code could tell you where a persons weight is centered.

Dear Skumar,
I have already projected a datalogger with a system with N. 32 sensors of pressure for the bike's saddle. I have used these sensors: http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/6445--5-Inch-Force-Sensing-Resistor-FSR-.aspx
