WABCO Holdings has inked a long-term deal with Daimler to supply its automated manual transmission (AMT) control technology to the commercial vehicle producers. WABCO will develop and introduce its 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 reduces noise levels, optimizes gear shifting performance and increases driver comfort. In addition, the new system is designed to support an extensive range of different truck types, gearboxes and market specific functionalities. “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,” said Nick Rens, President, WABCO, EMEA.
