How will the Universal Transmission change the semi truck industry?
With this new transmission, drivers never need to change gears because the Universal Transmission has no clutch. Not only will truckers not need to shift gears but will also have the ratios needed to take their heaviest loads up an incline with ease. By installing the Universal Transmission in semi trucks, the U.S. will realize its greatest reduction in gasoline consumption because trucks account for about half of all gasoline or diesel consumed for transportation. 8. Billions of dollars have been spent over decades by transmission makers trying to create a transmission that was truly infinitely variable, clutchless, constantly engaged and didn’t use friction to change gears. How did VMT finally figure out how to do it? Such is the nature of invention. We’re fortunate to have an inventor with great knowledge of gears but, even more important, a great passion for solving a difficult problem. That passion has led to a determination to find a solution. He’ll be the first to tell you, howe
