Electro-Pneumatic Gear Shifter
Gear shifting mechanism was designed & applied to make the shifting process faster and less destructible for the driver. The new device must be reliable and has a small dimensions, low construction & maintenance cost. This project aims to improve gear shifting process using devices such as a manual four speed gear box, single pneumatic double acting cylinders, single pneumatic two position five ways directional control valves, an electrical motor, a belt, two pulleys, push button, compressor, power supply. According to gear shifting method, the driver can select transmission gear ratio without moving his/her hands from the steering wheel by putting the gear shifting push buttons on the steering wheel. Using this method, leaves to the driver the excitement of choosing the shifting moment.
