This solution (LK6491-2) provides an introduction to the role of an Electronic Control Unit. Students use a number of pre-written 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 teacher’s notes, is available from our resources page. The solution includes component carriers, base board, a power supply, and storage trays and is based on our rugged Engineering panel.

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
