The first automatic transmission.
The first automatic transmission using fluid was developed by two Brazilian engineers. The project were sold to General Motors, who introduced the technology in the 1940 Oldsmobile model as a “Hydra-Matic” transmission. In 1934, both REO and General Motors developed semi-automatic transmissions that were less difficult to operate than a fully manual unit. These designs, however, continued to use a clutch to engage the engine with the transmission. The General Motors unit, dubbed the “Automatic Safety Transmission,” was notable in that it employed a power-shifting planetary gearbox that was hydraulically controlled and was sensitive to road speed, anticipating future development.
