Zeroshift Intellectual Property offers a seamless instantaneous means of changing gear for high performance applications or continuous torque delivery for refined high volume applications.
For high volume, the result is a single clutch automated manual transmission (AMT) system with the shift quality of a traditional automatic transmission that maintains the benefits of superior fuel economy and performance of a manual.
Zeroshift is less expensive to manufacture than a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a dual clutch transmission (DCT).
The fundamental components of Zeroshift are patented drive elements that can replace standard engagement components. These drive rings are easily actuated via standard shift systems. The basic gearbox architecture and single clutch are retained.
Zeroshift compares favourably with existing transmission technologies. The manual and automatic are well established with niche technologies like CVT, AMT and DCT having their own particular benefits. Zeroshift establishes a lead over all these technologies. The benefits of fuel economy, CO2 reduction, performance, shift quality, compactness, light weight and low manufacturing cost are all first rate.
