Radio Frequency Module on Small Gasoline Engine Application




Huang, Tian

Type of Degree



Electrical Engineering


Radio frequency communications applications are typically more applied than plain research in many aspects. A new application for radio frequency communications has been investigated for controlling the small gasoline engine on a lawn mower. The purpose of this application is proposed and its practicability is investigated. Circuit design is presented and the resulting printed circuit board is experimentally verified. The implementation cost is estimated and could possibly be further reduced. The design could be used in commercially manufactured lawn mowers and could potentially be the initial step in changing the way consumer lawn mowers operate.
