In this post we discuss how to modify an existing button start system in motorcycles so that it’s disabled as soon as the engine has started and gained the required minimum amount of RPM. The idea was requested by Mr. Jordan Circuit Requirements I just discovered your splendid site/blog with focus on education about electronics. […]
Under this category we explore a handful of electronic circuit designs specially dedicated to automobiles with an attempt to enhance their working performance and reliability.
Let's take for example the basic ignition system of automobiles which used to be a contact breaker type mechanism traditionally which slowly got replaced by an all electronic CDI system using capacitive discharge of a high voltage capacitor. The contact breaker concept was a lot inefficient and needed to be replaced every now and then, but with the infusion of the modern CDI made things extremely reliable and efficient ensuring log life for all automobile ignition system even during rainy or snowy seasons.
The post explains an easy method of upgrading your existing car fog lamp switch such that it allows toggling both the fog lamp as well as the DRL lamps alternately, as per the owner’s requirement. The idea was requested by mk karthick. Circuit Objectives Am looking for a circuit which is directly connected to the fog […]
In this post we are going to construct a GSM based car security system using Arduino, which can lock and unlock car’s ignition system and central lock by sending a password SMS to car from your cellphone By Arduino Guru Car theft can be a heart break; it feels like your loved one got kidnapped. […]
In this post we are going to construct a car reverse parking sensor alarm circuit using arduino, ultrasonic sensor and 2.4 GHz transceiver module. This project can be add-on feature for your car if it doesn’t sport a build-in parking sensors. Introduction The proposed project has similar functionality as traditional car parking sensor has, such […]
The article provides a detailed explanation regarding the various voltage regulator wiring configurations used in motorcycles. The article was submitted by Mr. Abu-Hafss. Technical Specifications After working on different voltage regulators, I feel to share my findings on your blog so that other people may also get benefit. Please insert the diagrams appropriately in the […]
The post explains how an accurate 10 LED tachometer circuit can be built using ordinary parts like IC 555 and IC LM3915. The idea was requested by Mr. Munsif. The Design A simple 10 LED tachometer circuit can be seen in the above diagram. The circuit basically consists of two mains stages. A monostable based […]
