This quick 2-minute video will introduce you to what may very well be the future of lightweight clutchless transmissions hitting the road in the future:
Dan Dorsch, the 2016 $15,000 Lemelson-MIT “Drive it!” Graduate Winner from MIT, invented the first high performance lightweight clutchless hybrid transmission. He describes his passion for inventing and how this transmission can revolutionize the efficiency of high-performance cars to an audience of high school inventors at EurekaFest 2016.
Dan Dorsch is a second-year PhD candidate and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in the mechanical engineering program at MIT. The 26 year-old inventor from Apple Valley, Minn. has grown up with a passion for figuring out how everything works. He built remote control airplanes with his dad and took apart his first car as a teenager, and now Dan has turned this passion into a career and focus for his education.
For a longer explanation of the project watch Dan’s presentation from the recent EurekaFest 2016:
