Open Problems and Conclusions

Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


The increase of the engine output peak torque leads to the introduction of higher-capacity clutches. In the case of a manual transmission architecture this choice induces a higher force needed to operate the clutch pedal and a lower dosability. This trend, together with the reduction of the transmission stiffness in order to improve the NVH performances of the vehicle and the minimization of the friction losses to improve the fuel efficiency, can cause uncomfortable oscillations of the driveline that are both not sufficiently damped and difficult to avoid when performing a standing-start or a gearshift.
