Abstract

Cruise control is a system to control the speed of motor vehicle automatically at certain speed. This is a servo mechanism that takes over the throttle of the vehicle to maintain a steady speed set by the driver, as it is an optional feature for high end variant cars. In this project we are going to implement cruise control concept for two wheelers, In order to avoid continuous acceleration for very long time when we are for long distance rides. We have planned to invoke this concept using electro-mechanical components like IR sensors, Driving mechanism (motor linkages) and pawl ratchet.
