Company Summary

We have developed an automatic transmission that can be manufactured around the cost of a manual transmission. It can be applied to the rapidly expanding automotive markets in the BRICS countries. Successful prototyping will immediately open a huge currently unsatisfied market. It can be applied to Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) engine downsizing using Variable Pressure Charging, and High power CVT systems for wind and wave power.
