Every living thing on the planet is affected by weights and measures in some way of form.From the moment we are born and throughout our daily lives,weighing and measuring are an important and often vital part of our existence.Our bodies, the food we eat and all the products we use as an integral part of modern living have all been weighed and measured at some stage in their development.Weights and measures are undoubtedly one of man's greatest and most important inventions,ranking alongside the wheel in the evolution of civilization.Commerce would not have progressed beyond the barter system without the invention of a system of weights and measures.One of the earliest instruments used by human was balance.Balance is an instrument for comparing the weights of two bodies,usually for scientific purposes,to determine the difference in mass.With the help of technology development,there has been improvement to the weighing instruments available today.Therefore, this project deals with an automatic self balancing scale which regards with the instrument for comparing the weight of two bodies.An automatic self-balancing is a weighing operation which is controlled by PC controller in an open loop configuration. It requires power amplification,or the power gain to control the amount of power the motor will be given. This project' aims for remote control capabilities so that the self balancing scale can balance itself automatically.
