Description:
There are many different types of sensors whose underlying realization is based on a Wheatstone bridge. Strain gauges are one such sensor. As a material is strained, there is a corresponding change in resistance. In many cases, each side of the Wheatstone bridge may respond to the strain by lowering or increasing in resistance.
