Microprocessor Controls for Truck and Bus Transmissions 811255
Controls are the key to meeting increasing transmission and diesel engine performance needs. Customer demands for optimum vehicle performance and rapidly increasing number of differing heavy duty transmission applications are pushing present hydraulic controls to their limits, and require the current controls be specifically calibrated for the various applications. A microcomputer-based control system can overcome these limitations and also provide performance improvements.
Application of the microcomputer for truck and bus transmissions is of considerable interest at this time as it has already been developed for the automobile industry, thus assuring high reliability and a large production base to minimize cost.
