Abstract

Automated Manual Transmission as the name suggests is a manual transmission with clutch and gear actuation done with help of actuators, either electromechanical or hydraulic. The whole AMT system has a control strategy to decide the actuation of actuators. Over the last two decades, significant research effort has been directed towards developing vehicle transmissions that reduce the energy consumption of an automobile. This effort has been a direct consequence of the growing environmental concern imposing the directives of reduced exhaust emissions and increased vehicle efficiency on current vehicle manufacturers. Consumers also expect the same level of performance, comfort and ease of use as in standard cars, to a competitive price. To construct a competitive solution, it must both be comparable in terms of performance, comfort and price of existing vehicles on the market. Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) is the best competitive solution to address the problem of performance, comfort, cost, efficiency. The main aim of this paper is to study the various research work done on AMT system in terms of design and control strategy.
