Speed control of Automobile using an Electronic Throttle Body.
Electronic Throttle Bodies are used in traditional internal combustion engines to control the speed of the motor. This device consists of a valve attached to a spring and driven by a motor. This project requires the student to integrate an Arduino hardware with the electronic throttle and implement a controller for position control of the valve. This requires knowledge of Arduino programming and coding in Matlab.
