Voltage monitor for car’s battery and its charging system

My 2010 Equinox has got every feature that a modern automobile should have. However, one thing that I personally find missing is the real-time monitoring of voltage across the car’s battery terminals. This may not seem to be that important but one of the most common reasons for a car battery failure is the faulty charging system. If the charging system is not working properly, the battery will not get the p ...

PIC Based Car Battery Voltage Monitoring System

In this project we are going to make a PIC based Car Battery Monitoring system on PCB. Here we have designed a PCB using EASYEDA online PCB simulator and designer. This Car Battery Monitoring Circuit is used to monitor the power of Car Battery by just plugging it into the power outlet on the dashboard of a car. The PCB also has the option to use it as Voltage Measurement tool or Voltmeter without using USB ...

Car Anti theft System Project using Microcontroller PIC16f73

For a while we have been sharing many electronic projects for engineering students and then we found out there was a huge demand for embedded projects, especially PIC microcontroller based projects. After a short break, here is another outstanding one that is not only suitable for electronics engineering but mechanical engineering students too. Now coming to the project topic, as seen from the title it’s re ...

Automotive Voltage Monitor using PIC12F683

Description Recently I got a new motorbike and on my second trip out, with only 50 miles on the clock the rectifier/regulator unit failed.  The battery on a bike is pretty small and with the head light permanently on and all the ECU, ignition and fuel injection stuff it didn't take long to run the battery flat.  Fortunately I'd stopped and there wasn't enough charge left to turn the engine over, but it's po ...

Garage car detector without a microcontroller

At the end of this instructable you will be able to detect your car as it approaches the wall inside your garage, signalling you that the car is inside far enough so you can close the door. Most car sensors will use a microprocessor to help calculate the distance of an approaching car when entering the garage. At our Wichita, KS makerspace MakeICT, we received a bag of components from JAMECO, which contain ...

Scalextric Sport Race Start Controller using PIC16F627A

Overview I developed this after my nephews got a Scalextric Sport slot car racing set for Christmas.  The set included a lap timer and counter but one thing that was missing was a way to start a race.  Having someone say "3-2-1-Go" wasn't really doing the job, especially as it was easy to go just after "1" and before "Go"  This works in a similar way to the lights used in F1 motor racing with five lights il ...
