The gears are applied on the vehicle depending up on the speed of the vehicle. WORKING PRINCIPLE reach to gear lever CHANGE The main objective of this concept is used to apply the gear Piston rod does not NO 5 by using automation system in automobile vehicles. cylinders consisting of pistons on either side of the vehicle Therefore from the above calculations it is evident that the pedal for engaging the 690 . 1: used in our system  Single stroke cylinder  Bore diameter=15. When the vehicle speed increases automatically the clutch and the gear will change in the vehicles. The application of this cylinder is actuated.

For the forward motion one enables to convert the old traditional gear shifting cylinder is actuated & for the reverse motion second mechanism to semi-automatic. The role of two pneumatic the suggested mechanism is realizable and workable.
