In this thesis we introduce a large quantity of input interface system using a low cost single chip microcontroller which is consists of walking board with 1600 switches, RS485 communication for switch data communication and PC application software for walking pattern analysis. When a pedestrian walks on the walking board, the pattern analysis of foot pressed switches can be utilized on diverse divisions of sports and industry such as walking physical therapy, dancing, a large quantity of sensors interface system, etc.
