Autotronics is referred to as modern automotive technology in the field of automobile engineering. It could be describe as an artificial word that combines automotive field and electronics content and it owns many applications in motor vehicles technology. The course uses an innovative, blended learning approach, which combines multimedia with sophisticated classroom training in order to meet the standards and challenges of modern automotive technologies worldwide. It contains a complete set of modules (basic and advanced), which allow self-guided learning highly interactive and practical. Autotronics, as an aspect of automobile engineering, presents basics, advantages, layout and components and functional operation of various computer controlled motor vehicle systems. In addition, it clarifies how to use recent diagnostic tools and equipment for fault finding and analysis. It deals with systems such as Basic Electric System, Ignition, Electric circuits, Lighting, Engine management and operation, Injection, Braking, Emissions Control, Safety, Conditioning, Hybrid Vehicle, Electric and Industrial Vehicles. For the Basic Training System, De Lorenzo has dedicated a course consisting of about five TIME boards (Trainer for Interactive Multipurpose Electronics) that cover activities such as electric networks (series and parallel resistors, theorems, laws, etc.), AC circuits (alternating magnitudes, RLC circuits, filters, etc.), automotive electric components and circuits (lamps, relays, stop and flash lights circuits, diodes, thermistor and thermal switch, etc.), charging and ignition circuits (ignition circuit and Hall switch, charging system, tachogenerator, etc.) and CAN bus (coding/decoding of addresses, logic gates, A/D and D/A conversion and data transfer in CAN bus, etc.). A fault simulator, for troubleshooting, is provided in all of them and they can be interfaced to personal computer through a CAI software. It is complete with power supply and interface to PC. It is recommended for vocational schools and technical colleges.
