Matrix: Sensors and Control in Automotive Applications on Panel

Product Code: LK6491-2A


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, baseboard, a power supply, and storage trays and is based on our rugged Engineering panel.
