Agricultural Machines C OVER STORY AG RI C U LT UR A L M AC H IN ES Automatic Calibration of Tractor Transmission Controls The quality of the working process of tractors depends on the precisely adjustable speed. This is largely guaranteed by power split transmissions. In order to achieve optimum tractor behavior, the transmission control unit must be adapted to the correct interaction of the mechanical, electrical and hydraulic components. In cooperation with CNH Industrial, RWTH Aachen University has developed a software for automatic transmission control calibration. 18 Agricultural Machines A U T HOR S Dipl.-Ing.
