What is Auto Gear Shift Technology?

Auto Gear Shift also known as Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) is claimed to be equipped with an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that automatically performs clutch and shift operations. Auto Gear Shift combines the actuator and controller and directly mounts them in the transmission in order to unify the working components. This permits synchronized control over the clutch and engine for smoother gear changes. The shifting time is also shortened as compared to conventional automatic transmissions.
