The Modern Automotive Technology Workbook is two products in one: a text study guide and a shop activity guide. It is designed to help you learn the essential aspects of automotive technology. It does this by highlighting the most important content in the textbook and supplementing this information with in-shop activities (jobs). The first portion of the workbook serves as a study guide for the textbook chapters. The exercises in this section reinforce the material in the textbook, ensuring that you understand both the written and illustrated aspects of automotive technology. Illustrations are used heavily in the workbook. After answering written questions on a subject or assembly, you will often be asked to identify related parts on a simplified illustration. This will help you more fully grasp the written material. The jobs in the second part of the workbook are supplemental hands-on tasks. They provide detailed instructions for a variety of shop activities, such as servicing cylinder heads and brake assemblies. Other jobs cover shop safety, checking vehicle fluids, using service manuals, and servicing ignition systems. All jobs will help you develop the practical skills needed to work in an automotive repair facility.

The most visible use of computers and software is processing information for human consumption. The vast majority of computers in use, however, are much less visible. They run the engine, brakes, seatbelts, airbag, and audio system in your car. They digitally encode your voice and construct a radio signal to send it from your cell phone to a base station. They command robots on a factory floor, power generation in a power plant, processes in a chemical plant, and traffic lights in a city. These less visible computers are called embedded systems, and the software they run is called embedded software. The principal challenges in designing and analyzing embedded systems stem from their interaction with physical processes. This book takes a cyber-physical approach to embedded systems, introducing the engineering concepts underlying embedded systems as a technology and as a subject of study. The focus is on modeling, design, and analysis of cyber-physical systems, which integrate computation, networking, and physical processes. The second edition offers two new chapters, several new exercises, and other improvements. The book can be used as a textbook at the advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level and as a professional reference for practicing engineers and computer scientists. Readers should have some familiarity with machine structures, computer programming, basic discrete mathematics and algorithms, and signals and systems.
