Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ELECTRONIC SYNCHRONIZATION OF SPEEDS FOR SHIFTING GEARS IN TRANSMISSIONS
Abstract:
A system (10) and method for electronic synchronization of speeds for shifting gears (26) in a transmission (12) includes an electronic control module (40) and an electronic synchronization module (34) in communication with the electronic control module (40) and adapted to cooperate with at least one input shaft (20) of the transmission (12). The electronic control module (40) is configured to receive a signal that a shift of the transmission (12) begins, anticipating, by the electronic control module (40), a desired gear (26) of the transmission (12); and synchronize, by the electronic synchronization module (34), speeds between the at least one input shaft (20) of the transmission (12) and the desired gear (26).
