Continuously variable automatic transmissions can bring improved fuel economy benefits under good speed ratio changes for automobile propulsion systems in which engines can produce their power under optimum conditions. These systems require computer control for the calculation of optimum speed ratio. The paper presents design features of the electrohydraulic interface between micro-computer and cone-roller toroidal traction drive CVT, dynamic characteristics of cone roller motion, and test results of the practical computer control of CVT.
