Developments in Automated Clutch Management Systems 950896
Since the very beginning of the automotive era the industry has tried to automate control of the clutch. Until very recently such control was impossible. Intensive use of new system simulation tools combined with the latest developments in electronics now allow the realisation of comfortable and reliable automated clutch systems at an affordable price. This paper describes clutch system requirements, their realisation through a close co-operation between system, hardware and software engineering, as well as field test results.
