Abstract: Acceptable automatic shifting – with all benefits of a manual transmission
A New Automatic Transmission Approach – a Suitable MT Replacement?
Driver’s comfort and safety, reduced fuel-consumption and emission as environment requirements and the wish of connectivity are demanding automatic shifting transmissions. Solutions are known: AT, DCT, … not suitable to replace a MT – being cheap, simple, robust, producible anywhere with common production technology – new, even unusual ideas are needed!
