A comprehensive introduction to automobile electronics, based on technology in production since the late 1980s. As well as providing a general grounding in this rapidly developing subject, vehicle-specific applications are illustrated via a series of case studies drawn from a wide variety of different manufacturers' products. Little prior knowledge of electronic engineering is assumed, and the fundamentals of microprocessor-based systems and automotive control strategies are introduced from first principles. The text is aimed at building knowledge and developing understanding with a minimum of jargon. It will also equip readers with the ability to understand the functioning of new automotive electronic systems as they appear on the market. The book is ideal for degree, BTEC, City and Guilds, NVQ and GNVQ students studying motor vehicle technology, electronics or mechatronics. Motor vehicle technicians, engineers, and enthusiatic car owners seeking to keep up to date with recent developments in this fastmoving and increasingly complex field will also find it of value. (A)
