Alright guys, I'm new to this and hope I'm in the right spot.
A friend recently sold me a Pi 3 Model B. I've been trying to figure out what to do with it, then it hit me. I want to try and build an "affordable" system that can actively monitor and adjust air pressure in each of the 4 air-shocks using height as the reference measurement. The plan is to use these shocks https://www.airliftperformance.com/product/82607/ and this encoder https://www.adafruit.com/product/377 with an arm instead of a dial in order to measure height.
I am having a tough time finding pressure sensors for this application though. The shocks are rated at 100psi so I'll only need a sensor that goes a touch above that, and reads very accurately and frequently.
I am also curious if/how I could use my Pi to operate four separate solenoids in order to provide air to the shocks? And what solenoids I could use?
And in the end I would also like to be able to use this as a recording system so I could plot the high and low pressure points on a graph.
I was also planning on using python to program this being how simple it seems.
So please share any ideas you might have, I'm all ears... err eyes I guess Cheers
