Automotive aerodynamics have long been a focus of research in order to improve vehicle performance and fuel efficiency. One method of improving aerodynamics is through the use of spoilers, which create downforce on the rear of the vehicle and help to stabilize it at high speeds. However, traditional spoilers are passive and cannot adjust their angle of attack based on changing conditions. The purpose of this study was to design and test an active automated car spoiler with an adjustable angle of attack in order to optimize its performance at different speeds. The spoiler was designed to be 140-180 cm wide and equipped with force-sensitive resistor (FSR) sensors to provide feedback on its performance. The angle of attack was adjusted using this feedback in order to maintain optimal downforce at different speeds. The active automated car spoiler was able to significantly improve the aerodynamic performance of the vehicle, resulting in increased stability and fuel efficiency. Further testing and optimization of the design is necessary in order to fully realize the potential of the active automated car spoiler. This study presents a novel approach to improving automotive aerodynamics through the use of an active automated car spoiler with adjustable angle of attack.
