Design of Shift Select Mechanism for Automation of Manual Transmission 2014-01-1749

The transmission adapts the output of the internal combustion engine to the drive wheels. For maximizing fuel economy and minimizing emissions, it is recommended to perform the integrated control of engine, motor and transmission by using an automated transmission. Further, in crowded cities, driving with a manual transmission creates stress to the driver due to constant gear shifts and clutch control. Today, several automated transmissions are developed such as an Automatic Transmission (AT), a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). But these transmissions are expensive. In manual transmission, due to variations in driving skills, gear utilization is not always optimal. Automation of manual transmission can help us maintain efficiency and reduce driver fatigue in city driving conditions.
This paper presents design and developmental steps involved in the automation of shift-select mechanism of a manual transmission and also supplement as a proof of concept.
