Abstract: Flow meters are a tool used to measure the volume of fluid that passes through a pipe in a given amount of time. Industry uses these tools in a variety of applications to keep track of their systems and to measure the volume of material that they are using. Presently, digital flow meters on the market command high prices, sometimes reaching several thousand dollars. Inexpensive alternatives to these flow meters do not provide a high level of accuracy. Our objective is to design a cost effective digital flow meter capable of taking readings over a wide range of flows. This meter will use piezoresistive technology with a microprocessor and electronic filtration to convert pressure input into a digitally displayed electronic readout. This flow meter will also have an analog output to interface with a computer for data logging.
