The automotive transmission plays a vital role in the vehicle powertrain, yet in an optimum operation environment it is invisible to the customer. This report examines the technological innovations in transmission design that contribute to important overall vehicle characteristics such as fuel economy, vehicle performance, quality and reliability.
This book is a reference providing background and solid supportive data for the manager and engineer with responsibility for directing the application of the transmission in vehicle design concepts. Historical information is briefly reviewed as a basis for the state of development of future transmissions.
