The present article portrays a design and implementation of microcontroller based system for displacement measurement using strain gauge based displacement sensor. A displacement transducer may be capacitive or resistive, is an uncontrollable device. Improvement in filtering increases the speed of measurement and enhances the measurement accuracy. In this paper a new algorithm and architecture is proposed as filter for the displacement measuring system with strain gauge based displacement sensor. We verify and implement the novel algorithm with this displacement transducer in the measuring of displacement successfully.
