Hello everyone! Without wasting much time for the kit to arrive. Let me first give an introduction to what I do. I am member of Vjti Racing Team, Mumbai which is consist of 32 engineering enthusiast. My task is handling the entire electronic aspect of the car. Here is a photo of our car manufactured previous year -
So the stuffs which I decided to incorporate in this vehicle are:
Speedometer: It will work on the basis of hall effect. Hall effect sensor detects the magnet attached to the flywheel of the shaft. So we would check how time it would take to complete one rotation. Accordingly we would compute the velocity.
Fuel tank measurement: This would be done with the help of capacitance sensor FDC1004 (FDC1004) which would measure the capacitance between petrol. The difference in dielectric of fuel and air would be measured & accordingly fuel amount would be measured.
There are many more things which we would like to incorporate in our vehicle. All these things would be controlled by STM32 development board. Lets see how the things work in coming days.
