Development of Android Software for Logging of Engine Data for Shell Eco Marathon
Examensarbete för kandidatexamen
Software Engineering (300 hp)
Teams taking part in the Shell Eco-Marathon challenge compete to create a vehicle that is as fuel-efficient as possible. To fulfill this goal the vehicles in general and especially their engines have to be as optimized as possible. To be able to do this as efficiently as possible the teams require a way to analyze how the engine performs and what it does over the course of a run. Most teams accomplish this by connecting the vehicle's ECU (Engine Control Unit) to a laptop in a development environment where a test-run is simulated. A much better solution would be for the team to be able to analyse the performance of the engine and the behaviour of the car in real-time under a real testrun on the track. This would allow the team to get as accurate data as possible to analyze and make qualified adjustments from. This report deals with the problems and result of an attempt to create a system that solve this issue. The system includes an Android application sensors and a desktop application.
