All LCC AutomotiveTechnology courses are based on NATEF standards which includes specific tasks. Although there are no skill requirements to enter LCC’s AutomotiveTechnology Program, we wondered what academic skills the NATEF tasks were based on. After doing some investigation on the NATEF website and then calling NATEF, we found a book entitled NATEF Academic Integrated Skills. According to the NATEF Academic Integrated Skills book nearly every task level is between a 9-12 grade level (See Appendix A). This NATEF publication includes a listing of applied academic skills for automotive technicians, sequenced in the order of applied
The second committee met to update the work of the first committee as a result of the revised 1996 NATEF Task List. Members of the committee were selected from all regions of the state to align the Idaho Curriculum Guide with the new NATEF tasks. The final version of the Guide is a dramatic departure from previous versions in that the NATEF groupings were used as the base format. Idaho tasks and objectives are listed below each of the NATEF task groups. This alignment is to make it easier for Idaho programs to follow NATEF Standards for certification purposes. Committee members are to be commended for their efforts in making this guide a valuable tool for programs to use for both instructional and certification purposes. The members included AutomotiveTechnology instructors Chuck McLaren, Kerry Phelps, Randy Mahler, Meridian High; Glenn Bevan, Boise Occupational Education; Dick Ireland and Allen Briggs, Caldwell High; Lynn Knudson and Mike Doughty, Boise State University.

This action research aimed to identify the various problems and issues arising from the day-to-day operations of the automotive repair shop in terms of proper automotive liquid waste management and from these problems, to develop an Automotive Liquid Waste Management System for the BSU-CIT AutomotiveTechnology Department. The respondents of this study were the 77 faculty members and selected students from the College of Industrial TechnologyAutomotiveTechnology in the BSU Main Campus for the school year of 2013-2014. The main survey instrument used in this study is the standardized Survey Questionnaire on Automotive Liquid Waste Management of www.spokanewastewater.org. The said instrument was slightly modified to fit the research locale and conditions of the study. Based on the results of this study, the AT department services an av- erage of 3 vehicles per day, with usual operating hours of 4 hours a day. It also commonly offers the following services namely: oil change, brake and engine repair. The most common type of equipment found in the AT department is the vehicle lift, part washer and oil drum rack. In addi- tion, the most common type of liquid automotive waste products generated is the used motor oil (15 - 20 liters) and the used brake fluid (4 liters and below). Finally, the respondents all “Agree” that there is a need to recycle used oil and that there is also a procedure in handling and disposing liquid automotive waste. On the basis of the foregoing significant findings and conclusions of this study, the following recommendations are offered: 1) the CIT should sponsor orientation seminars regarding liquid automotive waste for both students and teachers in the AT Department; 2) the teachers continue to strive to continuously look for creative ways to minimize and recycle various automotive liquid wastes; 3) the teachers are encouraged to manifest favorable values in caring for the environment to their students; and 4) the school administration may also consider the im- plementation of the proposed liquid automotive waste manual to further improve the current practices in the AT Department.

The computer system uses electronic and electrical devices to monitor and control various systems in the vehicle, including the fuel, ignition, drive train, safety, and security systems. See Figure 1-11. The use of com- puter systems has improved vehicle efficiency and dependability. Additionally, most of these systems have self-diagnostic capabilities. There are three major parts of an automotive computer system:
Today’s automotive repair technician has a monumental challenge before him or her to keep abreast of the constantly changing technical advances in the heavy vehicle & automotive industry. The technician has to comprehend information on the new Hi-Tech electrical systems, the ever- changing mechanical technology and improved materials, which make up a modern day vehicle. The technician has to determine what component part or parts are performing incorrectly by using meters, gauges, and computer test equipment. The technician will need to be able to repair the customer’s vehicle as quickly as possible. Repair
Digital Marketing is the fastest growing technology area in dealerships. The more the sales department became dependent upon technology, the more various CRM and Digital Marketing companies sprung up, initially with website development, then web tools, lead generation and lead management. Today we have hundreds of technology products with most dependent on the data flow from the core ADP and R+R DMS systems. Anytime there is a missing element in the DMS, another company springs up to fill that void. It is much easier for an agile 3 rd party company to quickly develop a tool that helps dealers sell or service more cars than for an older legacy system to try and patch that modification into their existing product. Some of the bigger technology companies buy the smaller ones that have developed a revenue stream as a method of growth, and the DMS giants have also been gobbling up new technology to expand their offerings and cross sell to their client base. Some of the tightest packed workshops at the Digital Dealer Conference are on Digital Marketing strategies and have included speakers from companies like Google. One of the reasons why technology costs have skyrocketed is due to all the new "widgets" available to dealers. When ADP Dealer Service was spun off of ADP Payroll, the new
The common rail was developed by Vickers, Ltd. in 1993 which become very popular. Then in the late 1960s, the common rail prototype was developed by Robert Huber of Switzerland and Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich furthers the development of the common rail technology. The purpose of traditional diesel engine fuel injection systems being designed is to secure the acceptable fuel spray characteristics during the combustion process at all load conditions. The efficiency will reduce and the emissions of harmful species will increase if the injection is incorrect. The first American engine with common rail injection system was built by the Atlas Imperial Diesel Company of Oakland, California in 1919 (Deluca).

Robert Bosch a leading name in automotivetechnology developed an in vehicle communication protocol best known for its reduced complexity in wiring circuitry known as (CAN) CONTROLLED AREA NETWORK protocol .CAN protocol uses a priority based message scheduling which has numerous advantages few important of them are efficient utilization of bandwidth, flexibility, easy implementation and small message overhead etc. CAN protocol developed in the early 1980s by Bosch is a serial bus communications . Afterwards, CAN protocol was standardized as ISO-11898 and ISO-11519, thus establishing the standard protocol for in-vehicle communication in the automotive industry. By connecting all the electronics in vehicles with CAN, they can be controlled from a central point know as the Engine Control Unit (ECU), which helps by increasing functionality, adding modules if needed, and building an efficient processes for diagnosing errors. CAN protocol offer an efficient communication between sensors, actuators, controllers, and various other nodes in the vehicle real-time applications.

Blockchain technology has the potential to bring transparency and trust to a multitude of use cases. Our research demonstrates that the technology can reduce asymmetric information in markets by bridging trust gaps. The combination of blockchain and Internet of Things technology that automatically collects sensor data, provides a feasible, decentralized technological solution for such an inefficient ‘‘Market of Lemons’’ coined by nobel laureate Georg Akerlof. In this paper, we develop a system prototype to reduce mileage fraud on the used car markets. Our work demonstrates the feasibility of a trusted system of records for (vehicle) data such as mileage data using a distributed database based on the public Ethereum network and smart contracts. We have identified eight requirements that are fulfilled by the prototype and the functional logic and design of thesolution can be reproduced to any other application area characterized by a lack of trust between actors or by the absence of a trusted central authority. However, the developed prototype suffers from similar limitations and challenges as the technology itself. Low throughput causes limitations in scalability and transaction costs are unpredictable. Further development of the blockchain technology and considering more cost-efficient consensus mechanisms will address these issues.
Controller area network (CAN) is a one type of serial bus which is developed by Bosch Corporation to solve the problem of data interchange between multiple electronic devices of future automobile in 1980s. CAN bus has the advantages of high intelligence, fault-tolerant and reliability , that can support distributing real-time control . CAN (Controller Area Network) is a serial bus system which is used to communicate between several embedded 8-bit and 16- bit microcontrollers. It was originally designed for use in the automotive industry but is used today in many other systems. Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network that was originally designed for the automotive industry, but it has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications. It is a two-wire, half duplex, high-speed network system and it is well suited for high speed applications using short messages. Its robustness, reliability and the large following from the semiconductor industry are some of the benefits with CAN. CAN bus offers high-speed communication rate up to 1 Mbits/sec thus allows real-time control. In addition, the error confinement and the error detection feature make it more reliable in noise critical environment.
