Soft sensing - material testing

Phil and I tested four different materials: Velostat/ Linqstat, Eeonyx pressure sensing fabric, Eeonyx stretch sensing fabric, and Eeonyx StaTex conductive fiber. We measured the resistance of them with a multimeter, and Arduino voltage divider circuit.

These soft sensing materials have tendency of ascending or descending resistance, but wasn’t linear or consistent.

/*Voltage divider with Analogue pin 0*/
void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
  // read the input on analog pin 0:
  int sensorValue = analogRead(A0);
   float voltage = sensorValue*5;
  Serial.println(voltage);
  delay(100);
}
