MOTOIL- Chain Oiler
The best lubricant for the motorbike chain is the oil that inevitably, because of the centrifugal force, is quickly expelled by the chain leaving it dry.
We are forced to a very frequent oiling to have a well-oiled chain .
We have designed an automatic oiler to obviate to this problem and moreover to save money, time, and to eliminate the jobs related to the maintenance of the chain.
Our oiler, with Arduino and the employment of a mini-peristaltic pump, will dose the oil only when the gps will receive the signal of movement.
Infact, the great difference in comparison to the existing oiler is that the lubrication will be active only when the motorbike is moving, avoiding, for example, the dripping of the oil, when we stop on a red headlight. Everything will be checked through a dedicated app, so it won't be necessary to install any switch or regulator on the motorbike.
The system will be composed by:
The system is so efficient that it can be crossed more than 2000 km with only 70cc of oil
The best oil it is the common and economic oil for cars gear, the 80W90,
The pump ensures an accurate dosing and it's not influenced by the temperature of the oil
This is the heart of the project, , the gps module activates the pump, only when the movement of the motorbike is noticed, the regulation of the oiling happens through the set of the frequency, with an activation every 4 minutes, but also with the duration of the pumping, to set the quantity of delivered oil.
Everything under control with the smartphone!
We can make the setup from smatphone screen, frequency and quantity, without any interference with the motorbike electronic.
Some automatic oilers already exist, but they are not able to stop the dosing when the bike stops. With the MOTOIL the oil is dosed only when we need it, that is when the motorbike is in running.
