J2VK's valvetronic exhaust control system is a dynamic exhaust system that allows for modification of exhaust noise. With buttons to control the opening and closing of metal flaps within the exhaust pipes, the system allows for quiet cruising or loud acceleration. The exhaust system also has an automatic mode that detects airflow within the exhaust and opens/closes the metal flaps accordingly. With strong throttle input the metal flaps will open to allow for louder noise; while cruising throttle input will be low and thus the metal flaps will closed for quiet comfort. Our product will be designed for a majority of the cars on the market so then people from all walks of life may have the option to improve their driving experience.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
