Sensors and control in automotive applications solutions


Key Features


  • A complete solution to learning

  • Includes carriers, baseboard and power supply

  • Includes worksheets with teacher's notes

  • ANSI version available -  order code LK9834-2A



This solution provides an introduction to the role of an Electronic Control Unit. Students use a number of prewritten programs for the MIAC Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to enable them to construct a wide variety of Input - Process - Output circuits using sensors and actuators typically found in vehicles. Curriculum, including experiments and teachers notes, is available from our resources page. The solution includes component carriers, baseboard, a power supply and storage trays.

Topics covered include:

  • DC motors with speed control
  • Stepper motors
  • Temperature sensor
  • Light sensor
  • Potential dividers and their use
  • Transistors as switches
  • Use of relays
  • ECU action and function
  • Automotive control systems
  • Sensor and actuator waveforms and signals
  • Sensor and motor faults
