Sensor architecture allows real-time auto emissions monitoring, Pt. 2
Part 1 of this two-part series outlined the problem of auto emissions and the periodic "monitoring" of pollutants and vehicle systems for controlling them, via an annual inspection—as well as the proposed real-time monitoring system architecture.
There might be many kinds of communication requirements, depending upon the final solution for the real-time emissions monitoring system. First is the interface between the information display MCU and the power train MCU. If one does not have single-chip support for display devices, as mentioned in Part 1, then one would also require a communication support between that display MCU and MCU under discussion.
The real-time solution also proposes to have a dynamic communication between the vehicle and any government pollution control and monitoring agency. To support this dynamic communication, one would also need to have a wireless communication support between the final solution and the central servers of an agency. This can be achieved using GPRS/CDMA/GSM mode of communication and therefore, support for this communication would also be required, either using the same chip by doing some architectural enhancements or using a separate chip interacting with the exhaust-monitoring MCU. All these requirements have to be kept in mind while designing the final product/solution to cater to the complete requirements.
