Hi,I am a third year ECE student from Kerala.Me and my friends are doing a miniproject on BMI CALCULATING EQUIPMENT.We intend to construct it as a DEMO or a smaller version of the original equipment.We are planning of using load cells for weight measurement and infrared(IR) sensors for height measurement.We've got to interface these height and weight measuring components to LAPTOP PC but we don't know how.Should we be using Arduino or Microcontroller?We are intending that our BMI CALCULATING EQUIPMENT can calculate BMI of a sample object of a maximum height of 1m and maximum weight of 1kg.
Should we use ultrasonic sensors instead of IR sensors?
Please help dear brothers and sisters
