This project is an example of a uniquely challenging sensor system project. The goal was to determine the maximum strain, maximum loading rate, and frequency content of the strain response in the cable based closure system for an alpine ski boot. The shape of the ski boot, flexible cable, need for live testing during a ski run, and environmental factors all presented challenges. Additionally, the extremely tight timeline demanded the use of piezo strain sensors, which are not ideal for this application. A custom algorithm and some clever test procedures were used to extend the linear range of the sensors and preserve as much of the low frequency content of the response as possible. This project is a good example of expertise in sensor system design, data acquisition, signal analysis and filtering, LTI system theory, and Matlab/Python.
