Remote Triggered Virtual Laboratory on Automotive Engineering

Bipradip Das, Abhirup Chattopadhyay, Shahab Fatima, Amiya R Mohanty


Remote triggered virtual laboratory on automotive systems is an initiative by Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, where a student can access and conduct experiments on an internal combustion engine over the internet from remote locations. The lab introduces student to the basic experiments on a single cylinder petrol engine loaded by an eddy current dynamometer. The student has a choice to download the actual experimental data over the internet for subsequent analysis or also browse through a sample calculation. The experimental setup consists of an instrumented single cylinder petrol engine coupled to an eddy current dynamometer which is controlled by a PC based controller. A diverse range of experiments could be performed using this setup which includes noise and vibration monitoring as well as basic performance monitoring of the engine.
