I'm going to be building a servo motor-driven two-finger gripper for a robot whose gripping force I need to measure. I'm thinking of using AVR-based current sensing on the servo to measure the force. Of course, I'd use an appropriate peripheral (like a current shunt monitor) to do the heavy lifting. Just thought I'd see if anyone here has tried something like this before and might have some tips. Thanks.
