Development of an energy self-sufficient, wireless measurement system for pedal force with a large radio range and a robust design.
Among other things, the following customer requirements had to be taken into account during development:
The product was designed with an aluminum force sensor in combination with a robust POM housing. Due to the adverse conditions for radio (pedal force sensor on the foot/pedal in the footwell of a car/truck) a special antenna was developed and adapted. In addition, the radio receiver was equipped with a USB socket and an extension cable to be able to mount the radio receiver higher. All customer requirements were successfully implemented. In addition, a serial data interface for calibration/adjustment and system configuration has been integrated. Currently 8 radio systems can be used simultaneously in parallel without transmission interference/cross talk.
