HOW DOES AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WORK?
An automatic transmission utilizes transmission software to automatically change gear ratios as the vehicle moves, freeing the driver from having to shift gears manually. A defined set of gear ranges in automatic transmission, often have a parking pawl feature that locks the output shaft of the transmission stroke face to keep the vehicle from rolling either forward or backward.
Some have limited speed ranges or fixed engine speeds, such as some forklifts and lawn mowers, using a torque converter to provide a variable gearing to the wheels of the engine.
OTHER TYPES OF TRANSMISSIONS
There are other types of transmissions besides automatic including: continuously variable transmission (CVT) and semi-automatic transmissions, that free the driver from having to shift gears manually, using the transmission’s computer change gear if, for example the driver were redlining the engine. Although there is a superficial similarity to other transmissions, automatic transmissions significantly differ in internal operation. Like a manual transmission a semi-automatic retains a clutch like a manual transmission, but controls the clutch through electro hydraulic means.
A conventional manual transmission is often the base equipment in a vehicle, with the option being an automated transmission such as a conventional automatic, semi-automatic, or CVT. Its ability to shift gears manually, often by paddle shifters, can also be found on certain automated transmissions.
