Japanese Automakers Team Up To Build Better Transmissions

As the automotive industry becomes more global, automakers try to be competitive through any means possible. Some companies are very particular about which suppliers they use, others have decided to join their efforts to simplify and improve their products. Automotive News Europe reports that Japanese car makers are following suit to develop their own new transmission technology.

 

 

The country’s nine automakers, including Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, and others, will partner with the country’s two largest transmission suppliers to jointly develop next-generation transmission technology. Two competing before suppliers( Toyota Group supplier Aisin and Nissan-affiliated CVT specialist Jatco) will now work together to develop new technologies for the nine automakers. The partnership is called Transmission Research Association for Mobility Innovation (TRAMI). It will be led by Honda’s Toshiaki Maeda, and will even partner with universities around Japan to conduct research.

 

 

TRAMI won’t focus on building a specific transmission, but rather the technology that will go into future transmissions. It is too early to tell what the association will work on, but some important improvements may include: weight reduction, reducing friction and energy loss, improving torque, improving CVTs, creating next-generation hybrid vehicle transmissions, and improving reduction gears for EVs.

    25 Nov 2017

    With winter on its way, the roads can be dangerous because it dries slower and road visibility as well as battery failure can also be hazardous.

    17 May 2019

    Between loyal customers and car dealers lie an important dilemma that begs for an answer - What is the future of diesel cars and electric vehicles?

But if we're talking about torque or initial price, the...

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
