Less the 18% of Americans today have the knowledge to operate a vehicle with an automatic transmission. This is due partly to a decline in the production of such vehicles but mostly due to the difficulty and inconvenience of learning. The choices are to either buy an expensive simulator that doesn't quite feel like driving or to learn using someone else's car. The latter isn't always an option because relatively few people own a standard vehicle and are willing to allow someone to learn on it.
This project is aimed to provide a method for people to achieve the safety of a simulator with the experience of physically driving. The system will read data directly from the vehicle and can train users on when to engage the clutch and shifter. It will then provide feedback on how well the user performed. The challenge of not grinding gears will no longer be a concern.
