The new drive-train system Automatic Drive-Train Management (ADM) controls all traction systems present in a vehicle. Applications include the all wheel drive feature in transfer cases and differential locks in axles.
Compared to manually operated or automated traction control systems ADM has the advantage of transferring 100 percent of the torque automatically.
The range of application for the ADM system would be a 4×2 truck tractor to a 6×6 off-road vehicle.
A key feature of the ADM system is the synchronized engagement of gears in a two-speed transfer case while the vehicle is moving.
