Auto Gear Shift Technology
The AGS technology was first introduced by Maruti Suzuki in India in 2014. The gear shifts and clutch control are electronically automated without any driver intervention in these automatic cars.
This automatic transmission has an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator which is operated by the Transmission Electronic Controller unit. This system can intelligently assess the dynamic driving conditions and adjusts the automatic gear shifts to deliver optimal driving performance. Since both these components are mounted in the car’s transmission unit, it ensures synchronized control of the clutch and smoother gear shifts. This, in turns, helps AGS deliver improved performance and enhance fuel efficiency.
Auto Gear Shift combines the actuator and controller and directly mounts them in the transmission unit in order to unify the working components. This aids a synchronized control over the clutch, gear shifting and engine. The gear ratio change is achieved at optimal shift point which results in enhanced fuel-efficiency and as the engine always remain in its power band it further increases the vehicle performance.
