Recommended Project 1 - Electronic Throttle Controller

  • This guy make a prototype Electronic Throttle Controller as his final year project at CPIT.
  • The system consists of a 68HC11 based main board.
  • A stepper motor and driver board.
  • A pedal position sensor and an engine speed sensor.
  • An Electronic Throttle Controller replaces the mechanical linkage between a cars accelerator pedal and throttle.
  • Breaking this linkage frees the designer to allow inputs from systems other than the drivers foot to control engine speed.
  • Such a system can be used in launch/traction control systems, gearbox controllers and anti-stall systems.
