Abstract

Clutch system in a vehicle acts as a link for transmitting power between the engine and the transmission unit. In vehicles with manual transmission system the clutch is either engaged or disengaged by the driver using the clutch pedal. Automatic clutch actuation uses a proximity sensor mounted on the gear knob to actuate the clutch system. The sensor on detection of the drivers palm will signals the geared motor to disengage the clutch and on removal of the palm, the clutch is reengaged.
