Our Research on Transmission and Driveline Technologies

Transmissions research has been a major focus of IAAPS for decades, benefiting from dedicated transmissions test facilities.  As well as modelling and optimisation of conventional geared transmissions, our academics include experts on CVT technology.

Our recent research activity includes the APC-funded ACeDrive project on the integration of a high speed e-machine with final drive unit, and ElecTra in which we are evaluating novel HEV transmission arrangements for agricultural tractors.
