Abstract (en)

[origin: US2007207896A1] A method of automatically matching engine speed to vehicle speed while a manual transmission is shifted. The currently selected speed ratio is determined from the ratio of engine speed and vehicle speed. The operator initiates a shift by disengaging the clutch. The operator's throttle inputs before and after clutch disengagement imply whether he wishes an upshift of one speed ratio or a downshift of one or two speed ratios. While the clutch is disengaged, the engine computer acts to bring the engine to the speed needed for smooth reengagement of the clutch. Engine speed control returns to the operator upon clutch engagement.
