Der Dieselmotor und die Einspritzanlage bilden eine untrennbare Einheit. In zunehmendem Maß gewinnt die Elektronik an Bedeutung, um die wachsenden Forderungen nach geringem Schadstoffausstoß und geringem Kraftstoffverbrauch zu erfüllen. Jüngste Beispiele hierfür sind das Unit Injector System und das Speichereinspritzsystem Common Rail, das mit dem Piezo-Inline-Injektor die Möglichkeiten zur Verbrauchsreduzierung noch mal entscheidend verbessert. Die aktuellen Maßnahmen zur innermotorischen Emissionsminderung, aber auch zur nachträglichen Schadstoffreduzierung wie Partikelfilter, SCR-Katalysator, Speicherkatalysator und Oxidationskatalysator werden ausführlich erklärt.

The BOSCH handbook series on different automotive technologies has become one of the most definitive sets of reference books that automotive engineers have at their disposal. Different topics are covered in a concise but descriptive way backed up by diagrams, graphs and tables enabling the reader to comprehend the subject matter fully. The rapid pace of development in automotive electrics and electronics has had a major impact on the equipment fitted to motor vehicles. This simple fact necessitated a complete revision and amendment of this authoritative technical reference work. This fourth edition goes into greater detail on electronics and their application in the motor vehicle. Additional sections have been added on microelectronics and sensors, as a result, the basics and components used in electronics and microelectronics are now part of this book. It also includes a review of the measured quantities, measuring principles, a presentation of the typical sensor, and finally a description of sensor–signal processing.
