Mini Baja Car Data Acquisition System Kendrick Burnett Cody Notaro
Project Objectives Retrieve data on engine, clutch temperature and input shaft of transmission and input data into excel so that the information can be analyzed and used to determine the optimal clutch setup. Retrieve data from displacement sensors to determine the reactions of the shocks to different terrains and events. Data will then be used to determine the shock valving necessary.
Displacement Sensor Displacement sensors will be mounted in line with the shocks so that they may measure the travel during a normal run of the car. The Shock is the same on all four corners.
Thermal and Hall Effect The thermal sensor will be mounted on the clutch cover so that we may monitor the temperature of the clutches. The hall effect sensor will be mounted on the transmission cover so we may monitor the input shaft RPM.
Engine RPM The Engine RPM sensor will wrap around the spark plug wire to monitor the RPM during a test run.
Analytical Component Software Algorithm Data will be saved to a memory unit available for the HC12 Data will be transmitted to a pc program where the data will be interpreted and exported to an excel document
