There are two basic types of transmissions — manual and automatic. While manual transmissions have greater transmission efficiency and better overall driving experience, it is difficult and not as easy to handle as automatic transmissions mainly due to the presence of the clutch pedal. Automatic transmissions make life are a lot easier to operate but are less efficient. So, the aim of this project is to take the best of both worlds and combine it in one i.e. the experience of driving a manual with the ease of an automatic. For this, the intention is to use a pressure sensor to detect when the gears have to be changed and automatically disengage the clutch, hence removing the need for the clutch pedal.
