Hello dear colleagues!
Today I would like to talk about electronics that I work with in my spare time, namely it is a racing car engine control.
Let's start describing the situation as a whole. In the car racing often the result does not depend only on a sportsman as in many other sports, but also it depends upon the equipment that sportsman uses. So, there is needed a professional approach to training and tuning up the racing car. Of course, there are a lot of nuances. But if we roughly divide this into the parts, we will get the chassis adjustment and engine tuning. Today I would like to tell you what electronics is used to tune up the engine of racing cars.
The modern racing engine (and the engine in your car) is controlled by a specific computer: Electronic Control Unit. It controls all processes that are going on inside and all on-board electronics. The most popular solutions are manufactured by the companies, such as Motec and Pectel. I am using in my car Motec M800, which is going to be as an example that I will discuss how it works.
