Car Transmission Model
Man builds a working scale model of a dual clutch computer-controlled VW transmission
Alan Wenbourne built a demonstration model of a Volkswagen DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox): a 6-speed and reverse, computer controlled dual clutch transmission.
Gear changing and clutch switching is effected by five hobby servos operated from a servo driver board (printed circuit). The model demonstrates the DSG gear changing strategies in pre-selecting the subsequent gear ratio then en-gaging it by switching clutches.
