Hello, I am new to robotics and so therefore I do not know to much about what works and doesn't.
I am wanting to have a small force sensor send information to a 2 or 3 digit display. I don't want to display the direct numbers from the sensor though I want to be able to manipulate the data. Say for instant the sensor measures a value from 0 to 400. I want to take say a range from 350 to 400 to displayed as 8 or 08. As the range decreases I want the number to decrease on the display. Is this possible with basic robot parts? Also I would like for this to be a portable application where it does not have to connected to a computer. I would supply the power supply.
I know you can buy the force sensor kits with the sensor, control board cable, sensor cable, and resistor board for pretty cheap. From there you connect it to a control board that then connects to your computer and you can then see the read out of the force sensor data. Once again I am new to all of this so be nice if you see something in this that is completely off the wall.
