Car Diagnostic Scanner Mitsubishi MUT-3

A personal computer (PC) is connected to the MUT-3 unit and used as a system's control terminal, and communicates with a vehicle ECU through the VCI. In addition to being able to handle all diagnosis functions covered by the conventional MUT-II tester, the MUT-III system can display data as easy-to-understand diagrams and graphs on a large screen of the PC. Unlike the MUT-II, the MUT-III can retain data on all vehicles, from old to new models, classified according to destination in the PC's hard disk. This eliminates the awkward but essential job with the MUT-II, of switching the data list (communications protocol data and diagnosis item list database) by replacing the ROM pack with another according to the vehicle model and year model.

Rebuilding Fuller’s Dymaxion

Some concept cars influence decades of automotive engineering. Some concepts never catch on. Some simply catch fire.
The Dymaxion car, designed by the visionary US architect and all-round polymath R Buckminster Fuller, may be the rare prototype for which all of these things are true.

“It’s full of unique and different technologies,” says Jeff Lane, director of the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. “It was a failure commercially, but it tried lots of different things that have had big influence on car design.” It was a big enough influence on Lane that, 80 years later, he’s in the final stages of recreating Fuller’s first prototype.

When the first zeppelin-shaped vehicle debuted in 1933, it broke every automotive design convention save the use of round wheels. Nearly 20 feet (6.1 metres) long, it could transport 11 people and return 30mpg thanks to wind-tunnel-tested aerodynamics and lightweight aluminium-skin construction. Its engine was rear-mounted but powered the front wheels, and it was steered with a single back wheel, a less-than-intuitive arrangement that may have contributed to a fatal crash that occurred during its demonstration at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair.

In Fuller’s lifetime, three Dymaxions were built. The first – the one that crashed – later burned. No 3 was sold for scrap sometime in the 1950s. The lone surviving original ( No 2) was abandoned to a farmer’s barn before ending up at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada. A fourth car, based on the badly damaged second car, was completed in 2010 by British architect Norman Foster, a onetime acolyte of Fuller.

Lane’s model is a recreation of the very first prototype, which had one door, no moving windows and a single headlight. Lane and his team of designers analysed photographs and news reports, bills of materials and 80 different drawings made for the manufacturing process. “We’ve got plans for 12 different swing arms, and some drawings have no numbers so we don't know which prototype they belong to,” says Lane. He has discovered details missing from the No 4 recreation, among them a work order for a belly plate, something he believes the streamline-obsessed Fuller wouldn’t have omitted from the design.

“We’ve been at this for four years,” Lane says. The chassis was built in Pennsylvania, and running gear was further refined at the Lane Museum. Then the car was sent to the Czech Republic where the wooden frame and aluminium skin were fabricated by an expert in World War I-era aircraft restoration. The car is being finished in the Czech Republic by Eccora, a coachbuiding and restoration firm.

“Fuller was not a car designer, but more of a tinkerer and a marketer,” notes Lane. The first assertion is obvious from the continual evolution of plans for the Dymaxion. The second is clear from Fuller’s claims that the car could reach 120mph (193kph) – though the 1933-4 Ford flathead V8 engine and its unmodified differential would have limited it to 75mph on the top end.

Lane drove the chassis around for testing (at nowhere near its projected top speed) during an early phase of the reconstruction. Trying to merge onto a roadway posed a particular problem. “You’ve got to start steering before you start moving, and that tail tends to move into the other lane,” he said, adding that it was a bit like driving a 20ft-long forklift.

Lane hopes to be driving the finished Dymaxion in Tennessee in late 2014.

How to develop a standard car OBD2 diagnostic procedures

Development standards OBD2 diagnostic procedures to prepare the information and hardware
1, due to TL718 has created for you the physical layer, data link layer and part of the application layer protocol, so long as the OBD2 standard application layer protocol text, ISO15031-5 or SAE J1979 (two protocols are the same content).
2, TL718 diagnostic interface or a set of self-built circuit TL718 chip.
3, home PC, a computer desk.
4, install the software: Accessport debugging software and VC + + (or VB, BC + +, etc.) your favorite software development.
5, symbol OBD2 standard automotive engine computer one (or a car)

TL718 Information

TL718 with the microcontroller via a UART serial port, PDA, or PC RS232 communications, in some new equipment on a PC has no RS232 serial port, through a virtual serial port can communicate with the TL718, for example, USB TO RS232, Ethernet TO RS232, or Bluetooth TO RS232 and so on.

No matter what kind of physical connection, you can use HyperTerminal or serial debugging tools, send and receive directly from the keyboard character. When using serial debugging software, you must first set the correct COM port number and the correct baud rate. Typically 9600 baud (PIN6 = 0V), or 38400 baud (PIN6 = VCC, PP OC set default values​​). Serial port settings are: 8 data bits, Parity: 0, 1 stop bit. If set incorrectly, and TL718 will not communicate properly. All responses from the TL718 with a carriage return (0X0D) and an optional newline (0X0A) ends. Properly connected, turn on the power. TL718 will drive the test LED lights (flashes three times), send:

TL718 starting
If the correct receipt of the above information represents the serial port and connection settings are correct. The second line ">" symbol represents TL718 is idle, you can immediately receive data from RS232. If you do not receive a ">" symbol to send data to the TL718 may cause data loss. Incorrect response occurs. PC from the serial port to send commands to the TL718 format:
TL718 has two kinds of formatting commands
1, OBD connect command, a communication with the vehicle.
2, the internal command, all beginning with AT, do not communicate with the vehicle occur
send must 0x0d (carriage return) terminated ASCII characters carriage return character is behind TL718 discarded.
TL718 internal command "AT" at the beginning, followed by visible characters. Invisible characters and spaces are ignored attached.
OBD command can contain only ASCII code in hexadecimal (0-9, af, AF), spaces are ignored.
If you send a command that can not be effectively interpreted TL718, TL718 will return a "?" Indicates that the send command is invalid.
When processing OBD commands TL718, TL718 continuously monitors the RTS pin and RS232 input, any of which happens, TL718 will interrupt the current OBD commands, making it quick return to the prompt ">", waiting to receive a new command.
TL718 uppercase and lowercase characters can be received, spaces are ignored. Analogy command "ATZ", "atz", "at z" are the same.

Range Rover gets stretched

Unless you’re, say, an especially tall giraffe or Jeremy Clarkson, it’s unlikely you’ll find the standard Range Rover too tight for space in the back.

But for those who require a little more length from their luxury 4x4 limo, Land Rover has today pulled the (very long) covers from the long wheelbase Range Rover.
The stretched Rangey measures a full 5.2 metres (17ft) from nose to tailgate, and adds an extra 14cm (5.5in) of rear legroom to the standard car’s already generous space by stretching the bodyshell between axles.
There’s extra lean as well as length. In the standard Range Rover, the rear seats recline to an uncomfortably limited nine degrees, while in the LWB RR, they angle back a business-class 17 degrees. As with the non-stretch RR, there’s the option of those lovely “Executive Class” rear seats, which replaces the standard three-seat bench with a pair of enormous individual chairs.
There is, emphatically, no seven-seat option. If you want a Range Rover to ferry lots of kids, the Sport is your choice. This is a one for the dignitaries and oil barons.
It’ll be offered only in range-topping (arf) Autobiography and Autobiography Black trim, the latter expected to tip the cash-scales somewhere around £140,000 ($226,000). 
Which is a lot of money. Then again, the RR LWB is a lot of car.
