Let's Make Robots!


Hello guys,

this is an electronic throttle interpreter a.k.a electronic accelerator, This project is all about controlling the carburetor of your engine using servo, coupled with a picaxe controller and a throttle potentiometer grip. This system increases the efficiency of your engine by opening the throttle in steps thus the cylinder in fully combusted leaving behind no gas residue, and so the staling of the engine is prevented, Since there is no physical linkage cable between the carburetor and the throttle stick there is no need to worry about cable being cut, thus this is a cool up gradation for your engine,

Please do comment your thoughts,

tanx for the advice buddy,

your advices are wecomed,

i have sent a request to my university to sponsor for a dyno test for this system,

please let me know any sort of problems you think that would arise, i'll do my best in rectifying it,...



Do not SHOUT IN YOUR POSTS, please write in normal capitalization.

Good thing that it can be used in any

I certainly hope you aren't putting this on any real vehicle on the road.  Please warn me if you do.

I've tested this system on road in a two wheeler,

its working without any faults, i have to test its efficiency in a test rig,

You put it directly on the road???

A) In most jurisdictions you have a modification to the vehicle control system. As it is not officially safety tested and registered it is illegal.

B - the part I care more about, seriously, I dont care too much about A, thats on your head not mine) Got any idea how dangerous that is? Seriously, you should have at least had the car jacked up *safely* and carried out extensive tests with the vehicle in a stationary position. Real products going to market (engine "chips"/retunes) get thousands of miles of rolling road testing before the car ever gets to touch actual ground and have the engine running at the same time. Sorry man but driving around on the road with a microcontroller connected to an engine which hasnt been fully tested just isnt a good idea, the fact your here suggests in your case it went well but lets say I was writing it and forgot to reset some sort of counter variable and was then unable to close the throttle... In my case its a car, your case a 2 wheeler (so I presume a moped or motorcycle), in my case I would have a 1 ton vehicle almost out of control and liable to do extensive damage, in your case your not as likely to deal as much damage but deaths are still a possibility. I actually drive a manual, can stall them out dead easy, or simply clutch + brake and turn engine off.
