An electronic device or circuit which detects and indicates the various fuel levels in a fuel tank without a physical contact, through ultrasonic waves, is called an ultrasonic fuel level […]
Car and Motorcycle
An automobile may include all sorts of vehicles ranging from cars, tempos, tucks, and two wheeler.
Although automobiles used to be particularly a mechanical based system long go, today with the advent of modern electronics it has been transformed into a major electronic system having the most advanced electronics active for most of its functional stages.
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.
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
The article explains a simple car tank water sensor alarm circuit using IC 555 and a pulsating signal on the sensing probes to pevent corrosion on the probes. The idea […]
