Today, the invention of the car is facing quite a few challenges, but during the time of its invention, it was not facing any kind of problems. One of the problems that it faces is causing air pollution. The increase in prices of oils is another problem that concerns automobile users.Because of these pending problems, car companies are busy looking for the solutions.
With the hope to solve these problems, automobile industry has been using different approach. Use of ethanol, though it is not easy to produce to fulfill demands is a solution for those mentioned problems. A good solution as well is the use of electricity since electric cars make zero emissions and they never use up oil resources. But using electricity has limited mileage per charge and long charging times of batteries.
The only and most practical solution left is the manufacturing of more fuel efficient automobiles. A minimum volume of pollutants in the exhaust will be emitted when a car is more fuel efficient. Therefore, the concentration of engineers these days is on the production of more fuel efficient cars. Because of this, at a great extent, they are using computer technology. Computers has the ability to perfectly do things unlike humans.Therefore, computers do a better job when employed to look after the performance of the cars.
Learning The “Secrets” of Cars
To control cars, instead of depending on the electrical instruments which was used in the early 90’s as their technology, electronics and computer technology is used by car manufacturers today. To pump the right volume of fuel from the tank to the engine, this type of technology is what they used. Wastage of fuel vapor is also prevented in this kind of technology. When the fuel is pumped into the engine, what will take over next is the computer call the engine control module. Correct volume of the fuel will be pumped to each cylinder and will provide the correct volume of air as well. Lastly, to create the ignition, it will send the necessary voltage.
Resources – Getting Started & Next Steps
The production of more efficient will be aided will all these additions to engine. Thus, savings in fuel can be achieved by these engines. At the same time, impact on the environment will be reduced with the use of catalytic converters attached to exhaust system. Car emissions is cleaned by these instrument and only the harmless gases to the environment is released. Any malfunctioning car control parts is quickly detected by the computer, therefore it is one more advantage with employment of computer technology. It is a case of buying the part in the internet before repairing the car. Therefore, the repair is also easy for these computer controlled cars.
