Speedometer is an instrument to measure speed and distance in an automobile. The speedometer could be of mechanical or electronic types (embedded with an ECU or microcontroller). The mechanical one’ are subjected to errors over prolong usage due to wear and tear of the mechanical parts, and even costlier than digital type speedometers which are accurate and precise in their operation.

In this project, we will study how to design a low cost digital speedometer with the combination of a few digital circuits and an ECU or microcontroller unit to compute the results and displaying the output on a 7 segment LED. The components used are: • • • • • • 555 Timer A MRE (Magnetic Resistance Element) type sensor Counters Shift register Microcontroller BCD counters

7 segment LED

A study had been conducted on creating a pulse generator using 555 Timer, cascading two (4-bit) counters, cascading multiple BCD counters, and interfacing 7 segment LED with BCD counters and a detailed study has been carried on the microcontroller IC8051, its programming, interfacing with the peripheral circuitry and its time cycle for the accurate execution of the programme.

The digital speedometer is designed keeping the transmission system of the VIKRAM 450D and 750D (Passenger and Load carrier) at its core, but it is compatible with any automobile with minute changes in programming.

5.2 Calculation

Ratio of N5/N7

Now as we know that the gear G4 is the final speedodrive unit gear which enables us calculate the speed and distance. Here we will calculate the ratio of number of wheel rotation to that of G4 Formulae used are • Pitch (P) of two gear in mesh is constant

P1 = πd1/T1


P 2= πd2/T2

P1 = P2
• And the ratio’ of RPM is given by

d1/d1 = T1/T2


N1/N2 = d2/d1 = T2/T1 =




The ratio of N5 by N7 is given by the relation

N5/N7 = N5/N3’’ X N3’/N4 X N4’/N6 X N’6/N7



Using relation 1.2

N5/N7 = T3’’/T5 X T4/T3’ X T6/T4’ X T7/T’6
Ratio for VIKRAM 450D Model


N5/N7 = 0.5436


Ratio for model 750D:

N5/N7 = 0.6124


Number of revolution of wheel (N5) in 1 km
When, wheel diameter is 474 mm, Radius, R is 237 mm Distance travelled in 1 revolution = 2πR Distance travelled = 1.48836 m Number of revolution in 1 km = 1000/1.48836 = 671.8804 So revolution of G4 w.r.t N5 is determined by using the relation 5.4 For 450D model

N7 = 1235.98
For 750D model


N7 = 1097.12


Note: The relation 5.6 and 5.6a is used in the microcontroller programming for the calculation of the distance.




For the calculation of speed we have used a combination 555 Timer and binary counters whose input is feed continuously microcontroller. As the microcontroller can handle a maximum of 8 bit of data at a time so the value for the minimum value of speed is display with the maximum number of count in the accumulator of the microcontroller.

Here, we count the number of pulse passed in one revolution of the gear G4 in the cascaded counter IC 7493, as the 555 Timer frequency and time period is known the time elapsed from one revolution to another is measured. So first of all we will have to calculate the frequency of 555 Timer for the calculation of the speed.

Formulae used are:
• • •

Relation .52 and 5.5 V5 = r5*5 T=2 /

For model 450D Table 5.6 Velocity at wheels (km/hr) V5 50 45 1 Angular velocity at wheel (rad/s) 5 58.5654 52.7426 1.1720 Angular velocity of G4 Time elapsed in (rad/s); 7= 5/0.5436 one revolution of G4 (seconds) T7 7 107.736 0.05832 97.024 2.155 0.06475 2.91563

Where, V5 - velocity at wheels 5 - angular velocity of wheels


T7 - time elapsed in 1 rev of G4 r - radius

So, when the vehicle is moving with velocity 1 km/hr the time elapsed in one revolution is 2.91563 sec and at the same time the counters must count the value 255 (11111111B, is maximum 8 bit binary combination), which will be the time period of the 555 Timer.

 Time period = 2.91563/255 = 0.01143 sec


For model 750D Table 5.7 Velocity at wheels (km/hr) V5 50 45 1 Angular velocity at wheel (rad/s) 5 58.5654 52.7426 1.1720 Angular velocity of G4 Time elapsed in (rad/s); 7= 5/0.6124 one revolution of G4 (seconds) T7 7 95.632 0.06570 86.124 1.913 0.07295 3.28446

Where, V5 - velocity at wheels 5 - angular velocity of wheels T7 - time elapsed in 1 rev of G4 r - radius

So, when the vehicle is moving with velocity 1 km/hr the time elapsed in one revolution is 3.28446 sec and at the same time the counters must count the value 255 (11111111B, is maximum 8 bit binary combination), which will be the time period of the 555 Timer.

 Time period = 3.28446/255 = 0.0128802 sec


Unit 6.Analog to Digital Conversion
6.1 Sensor unit
The analog signal is to be converted into an equivalent digital signal. The two possible ways could be: 1. LED-Diode type sensor 2. MRE type sensor In this unit both the methods are explained in detail

LED-Diode Type Sensor
As explained in the mechanical aspects unit the rpm and angular velocity of the final drive gear G7 is to be measured for the calculation of speed and distance. All other variable are minimized and the results is dependent on the value obtained from sensor unit.


A circular disc of fixed cross-section is mounted of the final drive gear shaft and a hole according to the diameter of the LED is drawn into the disc, a LED is mounted on one side of the disc symmetric to the hole and a photo diode is fixed parallely with the hole and the LED. The output pin of the photo diode in given to the OpAmp, as the output voltage is very low, it amplifies it to the desired voltage level of the circuitry. The output of the OpAmp is given to the pin1 of the IC 7404 (this IC is used as a delay function). The disc mounted on the G7 shaft rotates with the motion of the vehicle and when the LED and the hole are in line a voltage drop occurs and a voltage is produced at the output pin of photo diode

Magnetic Resistance Element Type Sensor
The MIRE is driven by the output shaft on the transmission or output gear on a transaxle. This sensor uses a magnetic ring that revolves when the output shaft is turning. The MIRE senses the changing magnetic field this signal is conditioned inside the VSS to a digital wave. Here instead of a complete magnetic ring we use just a magnetic element which is coupled with the gear G4 which produces a signal every revolution. The circuit points 1, 2, 3 and 4 are kept at constant voltage. The point 2 and 4 are given to the comparator which is capable of detecting even the slightest change in magnetic field indicating by a voltage drop at the output.

6.2 Astable Multivibrator using 555 Timer IC

Fig 6.3 555 Timer IC The 555 has 8 pins and is usually packaged in an 8-lead Plastic Dual-in-Line Package (PDIP) as shown in Figure 1. Table 1 shows the typical characteristics of a 555 timer IC. The 555 is also available in the SOIC, MSOP, and metal can packages. The 555 timer is a very popular and versatile integrated circuit that includes • • • • 23transister 2 diodes 16 resisters 8-pin DIP (Dual In-line Package).

The dual version (two 555 timers in one IC package) of the 555 is called the 556. The quad version (four 555 timers in one IC package) of the 555 is called the 558.

The 555 timer may be operated in three primary modes: 1. As a monostable multivibrator, wherein it outputs a single pulse of predetermined pulse width; 2. As an astable multivibrator, wherein it outputs a continuous square wave of defined frequency; 3. As a bistable multivibrator, wherein it operates like a flip-flop. The 555 internals include two comparators, which sense voltage levels, and a flip-flop, which remembers which state it's supposed to be in. It's not necessary to dwell on these bits, so long as we understand how to use the chip as a whole.

Pin Diagram 555 timer IC

Fig 6.4 555 Timer pin diagram Table 6.1 Pin No. 1 2 3 GND is still the system ground. Trigger' is activated when given a signal less than 1/3 of the Vcc. Activating Trigger' sends the output to HIGH, and begins charging a storage cap (not pictured.) Out is the square wave output. Sometimes we'll want the square wave, sometimes we'll look elsewhere for the signal we want. Description/Function



Reset' resets the waveform. We won't be using it. Note, however, that the bar above the word Reset in the diagram indicates that the pin is active LOW. To deactivate the Reset', we'll need to tie it HIGH, to Vcc. Control is pictured on the pinout, but not on our schematic, since we won't be using it and can safely leave it unconnected. Threshold is activated when given a signal more than 2/3 of the Vcc. Activating Threshold sends the output to LOW, and begins discharging the storage cap. Threshold and Trigger' work in tandem to keep the output oscillating back and forth




Discharge provides a path to drain the storage capacitor, which happens when Threshold is activated. Vcc is the V+ of the system. We'll typically use 5-6V.

555 Timer in Astable Multivibrator Mode
The 555 timer can generate a very wide frequency range, depending on the values of R1, R2 and C. The following figure shows how to choose the timing resistors


Fig 6.5 555 Timer in Astable Mode

Circuit Description
 In the 555 Oscillator fig 6.5, pin 2 and pin 6 are connected together allowing the circuit

to re-trigger itself on each and every cycle allowing it to operate as a free running oscillator.

 Pin 8 and 4 are shorted through Vcc, and the register R1 is employed between pin 8 and

pin 7.  A zener diode (4148) is connected between pin 7 and pin 2, so that the capacitor C1 charges only through R1 register.

 During each cycle capacitor, C charges up through timing resistors, R1 and discharges

itself through resistor R2 which is connected to Discharge terminal, pin 7.

 Then the capacitor charges up to 2/3Vcc (the upper comparator limit) which is determined by the



 And discharges itself down to 1/3Vcc (the lower comparator limit) determined by the



 This results in an output waveform whose voltage level is approximately equal to Vcc 1.5V and whose output "ON" and "OFF" time periods are determined by the capacitor and resistors combinations.

• •

upper limit = 2*Vcc/3 = 0.693*R*C1 lower limit = Vcc/3 = 0.693*R*C1

 Design Equations

• • •

Period: 0.693*(R1+R2)*C Frequency: 1.44 / ((R1+R2)*C) Duty cycle: Time High / Time Low: (R1+R2) / R2

 Where, R is in Ω's and C in Farads. When connected as an Astable Multivibrator, the output from the 555 Oscillator will continue indefinitely charging and discharging between 2/3Vcc and 1/3Vcc until the power supply is removed. As with the Monostable Multivibrator these charge and discharge times and therefore the frequency are independent of the supply voltage.

 The output is in the form of a square wave as shown in the fig 6.6


Fig 6.6

Square wave

NOTE:  R1 and R2 must not be circuit must accordance Best results are obtained with capacitors of 1000pF or larger, but used with lower values of R1 and R2.

minimum value less than 1K; the be designed in with the graph fig. smaller values can be

Fig 6.7 R Vs Hz graph
 The maximum operating frequency is around 1 MHz, but best operation is

obtained below 300 kHz. The minimum operating frequency is limited only by the size and leakage of the capacitor you use.  For instance, a 10μF capacitor and a 3.3 MΩ resistor will give a time interval of 23.1 seconds if the leakage of the capacitor is low enough. By making R2 large with respect to R1, we can get an essentially symmetrical square-wave output.  For instance, if R1 is 1KΩ and R2 is 1MΩ, the difference in charging and discharging resistance is only 0.1%, and good symmetry results. Any symmetry

you want from 50% through 99.9% can be obtained by a selection of the ratio of R1 and R2.  Only a small frequency variation occurs due to power supply variation but variation due to temperature changes is large, so any precise instrumentation project require more stable crystal clock.

An Astable 555 Oscillator is constructed using the following components, Time period = 11.43 ms (450D) and 12.88 ms (750D)

R1 = R2 =????KΩ and capacitor C = 10uF. Calculate the resistance value for the given time period of the 555 oscillator and the duty cycle of the output waveform. •T1 - Charge time ("ON") is calculated as: 5.715 ms (450D) and 6.44 ms (750D)

•T2 - Discharge time ("OFF") is calculated as: 5.715 ms (450D) and 6.44 ms (750D)

•The resistance is given by relation 5.1 and 5.2 R1 = T1/0.693*C = 1.649 KΩ (450D) And KΩ) •The Output Frequency: 450D - 87.48 Hz and 750D – 77.63 Hz and 1.858 KΩ (750D)

R1 = R2 = 1.649 KΩ (450D) and 1.858 KΩ (750D) (use a variable register of 2

•Giving a Duty Cycle value of: 50% As the timing capacitor, C charges through resistors R1 and discharges through resistor R2 the output duty cycle can be varied between 50 and 100% by changing the value of resistor R2, but is kept 50% by short circuiting R2 via zener diode (IC4148). But in other cases decreasing the value of R2 the duty cycle increases towards 100% and by increasing R2 the duty cycle reduces towards 50%. If resistor, R2 is very large relative to resistor R1 the output frequency of the 555 Oscillator circuit will determined by R2.C only. The problem with this

basic Astable 555 Oscillator circuit is that the duty cycle, the "Mark-to-Space" ratio will never go below 50% as the presence of resistor R2 prevents this. In other words we cannot make the "ON" time shorter than the "OFF" time as (R1 + R2)C will always be greater than R1*C.

Lab Procedures
Creating a clock source In this part, we will connect the 555 timer to generate an oscillator which can be used as a clock source.
1. Use astable multivibrator circuit configuration given (use a 5-volt supply), determine

values for R1, R2 and C to obtain a frequency between desired frequency in Hz. 2. A zener (IC4148) diode is used to obtain the duty cycle of 50%. Show your calculation. R1 = 1.649KΩ (450D) R2 = 1.649KΩ (450D) C = 10 F

In digital logic and computing, a counter is a device which stores (and sometimes displays) the number of times a particular event or process has occurred, often in relationship to a clock signal. In practice, there are two types of counters:

Up counters, which increase (increment) in value

Down counters, which decrease (decrement) in value

In electronics, counters can be implemented quite easily using register-type circuits such as the flip-flop and a wide variety of designs exist, e.g.: Asynchronous (ripple) counter – changing state bits are used as clocks to subsequent state flip-flops
      

Synchronous counter – all state bits change under control of a single clock Decade counter – counts through ten states per stage Up–down counter – counts both up and down, under command of a control input Ring counter – formed by a shift register with feedback connection in a ring Johnson counter – a twisted ring counter Cascaded counter

Each is useful for different applications. Usually, counter circuits are digital in nature, and count in natural binary. Many types of counter circuit are available as digital building blocks, for example a number of chips in the 4000 series implement different counters.

Occasionally there are advantages to using a counting sequence other than the natural binary sequence—such as the binary coded decimal counter, a linear feedback shift register counter, or a Gray-code counter. Counters are useful for digital clocks and timers, and in oven timers, VCR clocks, etc.

Asynchronous (ripple) counter

Fig 6.8 Ripple counter

An asynchronous (ripple) counter is a single D-type flip-flop, with its D (data) input fed from its own inverted output. This circuit can store one bit, and hence can count from zero to one before it overflows (starts over from 0). This counter will increment once for every clock cycle and takes two clock cycles to overflow, so every cycle it will alternate between a transition from 0 to 1 and a transition from 1 to 0. Notice that this creates a new clock with a 50% duty cycle at exactly half the frequency of the input clock. If this output is then used as the clock signal for a similarly arranged D flip-flop (remembering to invert the output to the input), you will get another 1 bit counter that counts half as fast. Putting them together yields a two bit counter: Table 6.1 Cycle 0 1 2 3 4 Q1 0 0 1 1 0

Q0 0 1 0 1 0

(Q1:Q0)dec 0 1 2 3 0

You can continue to add additional flip-flops, always inverting the output to its own input, and using the output from the previous flip-flop as the clock signal. The result is called a ripple counter, which can count to 2n-1 where n is the number of bits (flip-flop stages) in the counter. Ripple counters suffer from unstable outputs as the overflows "ripple" from stage to stage, but they do find frequent application as dividers for clock signals, where the instantaneous count is unimportant, but the division ratio overall is. (To clarify this, a 1-bit counter is exactly equivalent to a divide by two circuit; the output frequency is exactly half that of the input when fed with a regular train of clock pulses). The use of flip-flop outputs as clocks leads to timing skew between the count data bits, making this ripple technique incompatible with normal synchronous circuit design styles.

Synchronous counter

Fig 6.9 A 4-bit synchronous counter using JK flip-flops A simple way of implementing the logic for each bit of an ascending counter (which is what is depicted in the image to the right) is for each bit to toggle when all of the less significant bits are at a logic high state. For example, bit 1 toggles when bit 0 is logic high; bit 2 toggles when both bit 1 and bit 0 are logic high; bit 3 toggles when bit 2, bit 1 and bit 0 are all high; and so on.


Synchronous counters can also be implemented with hardware finite state machines, which are more complex but allow for smoother, more stable transitions. Hardware based counters are of this type.

Decade counter
A decade counter is one that counts in decimal digits, rather than binary. A decimal counter may have each digit binary encoded (that is, it may count in binary-coded decimal, as the7490 integrated circuit did) or other binary encodings (such as the bi-quinary encoding of the 7490 integrated circuit). Alternatively, it may have a "fully decoded" or one-hot output code in which each output goes high in turn; the 4017 was such a circuit. The latter type of circuit finds applications in multiplexers and demultiplexers, or wherever a scanning type of behaviour is useful. Similar counters with different numbers of outputs are also common. The decade counter is also known as a mod-counter.

Up–down counter
A counter that can change state in either direction, under the control of an up–down selector input, is known as an up–down counter. When the selector is in the up state, the counter increments its value, when the selector is in the down state, the counter decrements the count. Of the above counters we have to use two 4 bit ripple counter for counting the pulse generated from 555 timer and the BCD counters for the display of the distance and speed. The description of ripple counter 7493 and cascading it for 8 bit counting circuit is explained below in detail. The BCD counter and its application will be discussed in detail later.

For the counter to count at least one of the reset pin must be available with LOW input, to reset the counter both the R01 and R02 must be high.

6.4 Shift Registers
In digital circuits, a shift register is a cascade of flip flops, sharing the same clock, which has the output of anyone but the last flip-flop connected to the "data" input of the next one in the chain, resulting in a circuit that shifts by one position the one-dimensional "bit array" stored in it, shifting in the data present at its input and shifting out the last bit in the array, when enabled to do so by a transition of the clock input. More generally, a shift register may be multi dimensional, such that its "data in" input and stage outputs are themselves bit arrays: this is implemented simply by running several shift registers of the same bit-length in parallel. Shift registers can have both parallel and serial inputs and outputs. These are often configured as serial-in, parallel-out (SIPO) or as parallel-in, serial-out (PISO). There are also types that have both serial and parallel input and types with serial and parallel output. There are also bi-directional shift registers which allow shifting in both directions: L→R or R→L. The serial input and last output of a shift register can also be connected together to create a circular shift register.


Serial-in, parallel-out (SIPO)
This configuration allows conversion from serial to parallel format. Data is input serially, as described in the SISO section above. Once the data has been input, it may be either read off at each output simultaneously, or it can be shifted out and replaced.

Fig 6.12 4-bit SISO Shift Register

Parallel-in, serial-out (PISO)
This configuration has the data input on lines D1 through D4 in parallel format. To write the data to the register, the Write/Shift control line must be held LOW. To shift the data, the W/S control line is brought HIGH and the registers are clocked. The arrangement now acts as a PISO shift register, with D1 as the Data Input. However, as long as the number of clock cycles is not more than the length of the data-string, the Data Output, Q, will be the parallel data read off in order.


Fig 6.13 4-Bit PISO Shift Register

Serial-in, serial-out (SISO)
These are the simplest kind of shift registers. The data string is presented at 'Data In', and is shifted right one stage each time 'Data Advance' is brought high. At each advance, the bit on the far left (i.e. 'Data In') is shifted into the first- flip-flop’s output. The bit on the far right (i.e. 'Data Out') is shifted out and lost. The data are stored after each flip-flop on the 'Q' output, so there are four storage 'slots' available in this arrangement, hence it is a 4-Bit Register. To give an idea of the shifting pattern, imagine that the register holds 0000 (so all storage slots are empty). As 'Data In' presents 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0 (in that order, with a pulse at 'Data Advance' each time.. So the serial output of the entire register is 10110000.This arrangement performs destructive readout - each datum is lost once it been shifted out of the right-most bit.

Unit 8 Display
In computing and electronic systems, binary-coded decimal (BCD) (sometimes called natural binary-coded decimal, NBCD) or, in its most common modern implementation, packed decimal, is an encoding for decimal numbers in which each digit is represented by its own binary sequence. Its main virtue is that it allows easy conversion to decimal digits for printing or display, and allows faster decimal calculations. Its drawbacks are a small increase in the complexity of circuits needed to implement mathematical operations. Uncompressed BCD is also a relatively inefficient encoding—it occupies more space than a purely binary representation. In BCD, a digit is usually represented by four bits which, in general, represent the decimal digits 0 through 9. Other bit combinations are sometimes used for a sign or other indications (e.g., error or overflow). Although uncompressed BCD is not as widely used as it once was, decimal fixedpoint and floating-point are still important and continue to be used in financial, commercial, and industrial computing. Recent decimal floating-point representations use base-10 exponents, but not BCD encodings. Current hardware implementations, however, convert the compressed decimal encodings to BCD internally before carrying out computations. Software implementations of decimal arithmetic typically use BCD or some other 10n base, depending on the operation. Basics To encode a decimal number using the common BCD encoding, each decimal digit are stored in a 4-bit nibble: Table 8.1 Decimal: 0 BCD: 0000 1 0001 2 0010 3 0011 4 0100 5 0101 6 0110 7 0111 8 1000 9 1001

Thus, the BCD encoding for the number 127 would be: 0001 0010 0111 Whereas the pure binary number would be: 0111 1111

BCD in Electronics
BCD is very common in electronic systems where a numeric value is to be displayed, especially in systems consisting solely of digital logic, and not containing a microprocessor. By utilizing BCD, the manipulation of numerical data for display can be greatly simplified by treating each digit as a separate single sub-circuit. This matches much more closely the physical reality of display hardware—a designer might choose to use a series of separate identical sevensegment displays to build a metering circuit, for example. If the numeric quantity were stored and manipulated as pure binary, interfacing to such a display would require complex circuitry. Therefore, in cases where the calculations are relatively simple working throughout with BCD can lead to a simpler overall system than converting to binary. The same argument applies when hardware of this type uses an embedded microcontroller or other small processor. Often, smaller code results when representing numbers internally in BCD format, since a conversion from or to binary representation can be expensive on such limited processors. For these applications, some small processors feature BCD arithmetic modes, which assist when writing routines that manipulate BCD quantities.

No matter how many bytes wide a word is, there is always an even number of nibbles because each byte has two of them. Therefore, a word of n bytes can contain up to (2n) −1


decimal digits, which is always an odd number of digits. A decimal number with d digits requires ½(d+1) bytes of storage space.

IC 4033
The 4033B are monolithic integrated circuits, available in 16-lead dual in-line plastic or ceramic package and plastic micro package. The each consist of a 5-stage Johnson decade counter and an output decoder which converts the Johnson code to a 7-segment decoded output for driving one stage in a numerical display. These devices are particularly advantageous in display applications where power dissipation low and/or low package count are important. Input types are CLOCK, RESET, & CLOCK INHIBIT; outputs are CARRY OUT and the seven decoded outputs (a, b, c, d, e, f, and g), additional inputs and outputs.
