Fly-by-wire clutch patent - auto clutch for stick cars

Recommended Posts

Just read this bit of news. I think it would be fantastic to be able to autoclutch in stop and go, not mentioning savings on weight / maintenance of the system

"Such an electronically-operated system would provide consistent pedal feedback regardless of how worn-down the clutch is. And extrapolating a bit, it's easy to see that such a system could also allow for the car to smooth out an inexperienced driver's clutch technique, or even let the car automatically operate the clutch, perhaps in stop-and-go driving.
