Abstract

The number of automobile users is increasing day by day. At the same time, the number of people prone to accidents continues to rise. This is because drivers are exposed to a number of distractions. In order to reduce this, automation came into existence. Over the past two decades, the automotive industry has aggressively researched ways to exploit modern computing and electronic advances in body control modules to provide safety, reliability, comfort and entertainment technologies for users. In this paper, the automation system deals with the development of a Body Control Module (BCM) including features providing automatic control of windshield wipers, headlamps, sunroof, power window regulators with an anti-pinch feature. Developments of these features were accomplished using a PIC micro-controller 16F877A along with components like sensors, actuators, current drivers & signal conditioning circuits. The developed automation system is tested on a general purpose PCB with DC motors and LED.
