In this prototype the deck needs to be weight sensing. The loadcell mounts needs to be incorporated into the deck. In order to make the deck weight sensing two options were considered. One was to make a double layered deck where the loadcells are in between the two decks. Or the second option was to have only one deck but place the loadcells between the deck and the truck. Second option was not feasible since the truck has to be rigidly attached to the deck. Placing a loadcell in between will either loosen the attachment of the truck to the deck or the rigidly attached truck would add stray loads to the loadcell.
