Explaining Diffrent Types Of Transmission

What is Transmission? A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of power. Often the term 5-speed transmission refers simply to the gearbox, that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque block conversions from a rotating power source to another device. The term transmission properly refers to the whole drivetrain, including clutch, gearbox, prop shaft (for rear-wheel drive vehicles), differential, and final drive shafts. Different Types of Transmission are

1) Manual Transmission

In this transmission gear changes require the driver to manually select the gears by operating a gear stick and clutch.

2) Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)

It is similar to a manual transmission, except that the sensors and actuators perform the clutch work and shift gears. A car with an AMT does not have a clutch pedal; there’s only the accelerator and brake pedal.

3) Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT)

iMT is a manual gearbox, it has gears and a gear lever that looks exactly similar to any manual gear lever. But the drive experience is more like an automatic car. iMT doesn’t have a clutch but just a brake and an accelerator pedal.

4) Automatic Transmission (AT)

An automatic transmission (AT) is a multi-speed transmission used in motor vehicles that does not require any driver input to change forward gears under normal driving conditions.

5) Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is an automatic transmission that can change seamlessly through a continuous range of gear ratios. This contrasts with other transmissions that provide a limited number of gear ratios in fixed steps.

6) Semi-Automatic Transmission

It is a multi-speed motor vehicle transmission where part of its operation is automated (typically the clutch actuation), but the driver’s input is still required to launch the vehicle from a standstill and to manually change gears.

7) Dual Clutch Transmission

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is a type of multi-speed vehicle transmission system, that uses two separate clutches for odd and even gear sets.
