Integration of Automatic Transmission for AutoRickshaw

Auto-rickshaws are very popular in Indian, everyone know that they have manual transmissions with 4 forward gears and 1 reverse. Have you ever thought how convenient it would be for the driver if it had automatic transmission? especially when a passenger too occupies the driver seat, a common scene in most cities.

Now if you think why not anyone has thought of this wonderful idea before you may be wrong. It is entirely possible that companies have thought of it and discarded the idea, may be for the following reasons;

  • Automatic transmission costs more – So it is not practical to increase the cost of auto rickshaws which are to be owned by poor people.
  • Has lower mileage than manual transmission  because of low efficiency of automatic transmission system.
  • Have higher maintenance costs

If you think of the auto-mobile industry a few years back you will find that most car models didn’t have automatic transmissions but now more and more models are coming with AT. This is because the above three disadvantages are getting fixed, the same can happen for auto rickshaws. So this would definitely be a good time to do a project on automatic transmission for auto rickshaws.

This mechanical engineering project is about integrating an automatic transmission to an auto rickshaw replacing manual transmission gear box.

Manual transmissions are operated with the help of a clutch box, a gear knob and meshing of different sets of gear boxes. But an automatic transmission works with the help of planetary gears.

The working of automatic transmission for the project is the same as that in a gearless scooter. But here while integrating this transmission with an auto-rickshaw the size of the transmission equipment is different from that of scooter. So you will need to machine transmission elements.

I just happen to cruise to this website by accident but found this article interesting. If such auto-transmission is available, I could get thousands of them fitted in Delhi’s autorickshaws which are part of our organisations.

So it looks like anyone attempting this project has a good market as well as a sponsor!! 🙂 Thanx Rakesh..

is it more flexible than manual transmission. it seems like an interesting project for the students like me who wnts to do some awesome stuff in thr projects.

can i gt technical details of this project, i want to make a project report in my study. Its urgent please forward details.

can i please get the technical details of this proj. i want to start it as soon as possible

I have a project for final year of mechanical engineering students.
Interested may contact.
The title of project is “Gear cutting Attachment on Lathe”.
Its a special Fixture which when attached on a lathe m/c can be used to cut profiles of gear.
Thus we do not need milling machine for that.
This is locate in PUNE.

Sir can u pls mail me all the technical details of the project ” Integration of Automatic Transmission for AutoRickshaw”.

hey hello ,
right now i’m in final year mechanical engineering student…
this project is of my interest.. its really a great topic considering the daily travel especially when someone has to sit on 4th seat i.e on the drivers seat 😛
it would be easy for them to drive 🙂
it would be comfortable for everyone..
i wish to do the same as my project…
so can i have someone to guide through this..
awaiting positive reply.

Interested in doing this one as a project 4 ma final year.. Pls send d technical details as soon as possible.

sir, can i have some leads/ hints/ details/ contacts or any other source by which i can work more on the same for my final year project.
thanks in advance 🙂
