During the past fifteen years, the Fiat Research Centre (CRF) has acquired considerable experience in the design, analysis, testing and validation of automatic manual transmission control applications, for cars with different kinds of motorization: gasoline, diesel, natural gas, and electric. With dSPACE Prototyper and ControlDesk we at CRF were able to set up different dual clutch transmission (DCT) applications in a notable time, concentrating on the control strategies and the system design. DCT represents the evolution of automated manual transmission (AMT), as it overcomes the loss of comfort due to the torque transient.
