Abstract

This senior project involves the design and implementation of a data logging system on a modified pulling tractor, Mustang Fever. The project starts out a continuation of a previous project. The original goal of the project was to keep the Cal Poly Tractor Pull on the leading edge of innovation. The implementation of a sensor array and logging system on a modified pull tractor assists with the maintenance and tuning of the machine. The collected data is stored on a USB drive to allow analysis in the future.

The parameters collected by the system are: pressures, temperatures, and rotational speeds. This project shows the steps from design to construction to testing of the equipment. The project concludes with a functioning system that stores data. The analysis of the data shows that most of it is accurate. The paper finally ends with recommendation on how to improve the system further.
