Daimler to use Wabco next gen AMT tech

Technology company, Wabco, has announced a global long-term agreement to supply its next generation automated manual transmission (AMT) control technology to commercial vehicle manufacturer, Daimler.

Wabco will reportedly develop and introduce its next generation AMT control technology into Daimler’s global truck and bus series production. With a lighter weight, robust and more compact design, Wabco’s new gearbox control unit is said to reduce noise levels, optimise gear shifting performance and improve driver comfort. The innovative system is also designed to support a variety of truck types, gearboxes and market-specific functionalities.

Wabco said its AMT solution helps to improve vehicle safety and commercial vehicle drivers by eliminating the distraction of gear changing in diverse driving conditions and environments, while removing any performance or efficiency gaps between skilled and less experienced drivers.

“We are deeply honoured to receive this significant contract for our next generation AMT controls from Daimler which reflects their continued confidence in Wabco’s relentless innovation and technology leadership,” said Wabco President – EMEA, Nick Rens.

“Confirming our global market leadership, this latest agreement with Daimler will help powerfully drive Wabco’s sustained outperformance as market penetration of our AMT controls increases and as we raise the technology bar further in support of our OEM and fleet customers globally,” he said.
