Load cells for gaming and SIM racing

Jun 12, 2020

With the rise in VR gaming, the accuracy and sensitivity of Load cell sensors is helping gamers achieve more realistic feelfor games, especially in SIM / VR racing. The benefits for SIM drivers is improved handling, and therefore improved speed.

Serious SIM racers use a rig of physical pedals that look and feel (and react) like the genuine articles in a racing car. The load cells allow the SIM driver to use the pedals, especially the brake pedal more intuitively. The brake force can be adjusted using software, and the physical feel of the pedals using interchangeable springs.

Each pedal features a mavin load cell to provide a true linear output in relation to the pedal input. This provides unrivalled accuracy and durability as, unlike regular rotary potentiometers, they do not wear out over time. On the throttle and clutch pedals, the load cells work as positional sensors whereas the load cell on the brake pedal measures the pressure put on the pedalAlso included is a USB controller for connection to a PC, to which each of the pedals are connected, which houses a load cell amplifier.

Its hardly surprising that load cells feature in SIM pedals, as the automotive industry have been using them for years for testing and monitoring vehicle performance, including gearshift, suspension, steering, pedal force and general testing.
