What kind of sensor should I use?

January 4, 2010 | 8:03 pm

I’m working on a project that makes use of an old, motor-less treadmill.

I need to use a sensor to detect when someone is using the treadmill. While I do not need to know how fast the treadmill is going, I do need to know if someone is actually walking or running as opposed to just standing on it.

What kind of sensor can I use to get this data into Max?

I’d use a mouse.

Or a piezo. Though the piezo would generate sound from someone jumping on it too.

Cheers
