Vehicles with automated mechanical transmission (AMT) combine the comfort features of an automatic transmission with the cost advantages of a manual gearbox. Using a commercial truck with a 12-speed manual transmission as a basis, Dongfeng developed a new AMT system including a control unit for automatic gear shifting. The production code generator TargetLink was used to generate the control software and helped to reduce the development time.
