Such projects are less likely to appreciate the benefits of Java, and are often able to justify the higher software engineering and maintenance costs associated with the choice to use an older language.
As an example, this article looks at a modern automobile's traction monitoring system.
We assume that the traction monitoring system has access to sensors that detect each of the following values: We measure the speed and acceleration on each wheel independently by comparing the values produced by the rotational angle sensor for consecutive readings. The circumference of the wheel is calculated as shown in Figure 1: Figure 1.
Calculation of wheel circumference Assume further that the operating constraints on the vehicle limit its speed to no more than 150 miles per hour.
The dimensional analysis in Figure 2 shows that the minimum time for a wheel rotation is 28.56 ms: Figure2.
