APPLYING ELECTRONICS TO AUTOMOBILES

This article shows how the Detroit car makers are using electronic engine controls in more and more automobiles in order to meet the upcoming standards for emission control, fuel economy and performance. For example, Chrysler is expanding the use of its Electronic Spark System to more cars. The system uses a "third generation" microprocessor controlled spark advance computer. Another example is the electronic fuel injection system for the '79 Cadillac Seville that controls air-fuel ratio by varying the length of time the fuel injectors are open.
