The potential applications for a microprocessor in an automobile can be divided roughly into the categories shown in Table 1. With existing emission regulations and possible future fuel economy legislation, a logical first application for an on-board computer is the engine control function. In this paper we shall concentrate on this application area, and will mention only those monitoring/diagnosis functions which are directly related.
