Hardware specification and design of precision maneuvering control unit for marine vessels
2002 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The art of power boating is changing rapidly with the introduction of high performance electronics. The engines become accessible to microcontrollers as engine manufacturers abandon traditional wires and hydraulics in favor of electronic controls. The addition of microcontrollers enables new advanced functions such as precision control. It is the development of new cheap micromachined sensors, angle rate sensors and accelerometers, that through active feedback make precision control possible. The objectives of this thesis was to write a product specification and to design hardware for a control unit that greatly simplifies the controlling of power boats, taking into account different configurations of engines and maneuvering accessories. The sensors used to realize these functions can also be used in other applications such as trim and tilt functions, autopilots and more. The main hardware parts of the unit are the sensor block, a CPU, power supplies, and a number of interfaces for collecting data and communicating with peripherals and a main network. The hardware has been designed to withstand the harsh environment of marine applications. The result of the thesis is a good foundation of ideas and hardware for building a multipurpose control unit for marine vessels.
