BMW engineers have conceived to create a microcontroller, which will link the transmission of the car with a navigation system, and that, in turn, will be able to tell the most appropriate way to drive to the gear box. The electronic device will take into account several parameters, such as the upcoming descent or ascent, turning radius, the speed limit on a particular area, and transmit information AKP to switch to the optimal gear.
