Engine Control Inputs and Signal Conditioning for Crankshaft and Camshaft Positioning 2000-01-3092
The Formula SAE (FSAE team for 2000) at Lawrence Technological University is utilizing parts and equipment from a four cylinder, four carburetor, 600cc four stroke Honda motorcycle engine. These parts will provide the crankshaft and camshaft position information to an Engine Control Module that will control the engine when fuel injection is used to replace the carburetors. The FSAE team will develop an improved method to determine the crankshaft and camshaft positions. The new method will be implemented by adding sensors and electronic circuit to perform the necessary calculation to obtain the crankshaft and camshaft position.
