Rationale
Since last few decades, car designers have turned to high technology in order to meet ever more stringent emission control, ergonomics, safety regulations and the demands of customers for better cars at global level. Multi-modal transportation become increasingly common and intelligent vehicles will cater to diverse consumer needs for information, environmental responsibility and safety. Vehicle electronics contribute significantly to improve environmental performance of motor vehicles and are, therefore, an important enabler of “green” vehicle technology. Electronics offer improved control to a variety of vehicle systems, allowing for more efficient operation of engines and other power trains, heating and cooling systems etc., resulting in less fuel or other power consumed and thus, lower harmful emissions. Today’s complex hybrid power trains could not be operated and managed without an array of electronics, including sensors, controllers and actuators. Furthermore, replacement of mechanical components with electronic components tends to be lighter, again leading to less demand for fuel and power options. This course aims to provide understanding of importance of multidisciplinary knowledge in application by appreciation about role of sensor, actuator and electronics components for modernization of automobile.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Describe construction, functions and applications of various sensors and actuators used in modern vehicle
ii. Explain modern Ignition systems of S.I. and C.I. Engines
iii. Explain latest advancement in Engine technology
iv. Identify and describe various advanced peripheral system used in automobile
v. Demonstrate various safety features and equipment used in modern vehicle
vi. Identify various modern features for better functioning of vehicle.
