Aztec Racing strain gauge Data Acquisition Project

SDSU Aztec Racing strain gauge Data Acquisition Project

This project will acquire important data for vehicle performance. Full-bridge wheatstone bridge circuit with instrumentation amplifiers will be used to measure the amount of strain on the car. The RaceCapture/Pro data acquisition unit will be used to collect voltage measurements from the amplifiers which can then be analyzed. This information can then be used to better design the car and fix different strains which can lead to deterioration and/or bad performance.

 

Below are pictures of the completed Full-Bridge Wheatstone Bridge Circuit with Instrumentation Amplifiers:
