The electronic control unit (ECU) collects all the demands on the engine, prioritizes them, and then implements them. Examples of these demands include position of the accelerator pedal and exhaust-system requirements for the mixture composition. Torque is the key criterion for meeting all of these demands. The air-fuel ratio is adjusted in such a way that torque is provided as economically and cleanly as possible. The ECU also allows active driving safety systems, such as ABS and motorcycle stability control, to intervene in the engine torque.
The ECU makes it possible to set up a connection with a smartphone. For example, in the future riders will be able to see and store information about fuel consumption, speed, and route length on their smartphones. A smartphone can also activate immobilizers by cutting off the fuel supply.
Smartphone connectivity will play an additional role – in two-wheeler diagnostics. Riders can see the malfunction data themselves, and can either bring the vehicle in for repairs or delete the data from the fault memory.
The electronic control unit Motronic for two-wheelers is available as a printed circuit board in a variety of housings.
It is also compatible with upcoming features such as on-board diagnostics (OBD), start/stop, ISO 26262, knock control, and smartphone communication – this enhances connectivity and the overall user experience.
