ATC - Adaptive Transmission Control

The Adaptive Transmission Control system is found only on automatic and sequential transmissions and is based on a fuzzy-logic processor which can recognize individual styles of driving and adapts transmission shift parameters accordingly. It usually uses a microprocessor to read data from various sensors, and with the help of a complex algorithm it decides when to upshift or downshift.

It is very helpful especially since the fuzzy logic processor allows it to actually memorize the driver's driving habits or "learn" the environment conditions (for example, on slippery surfaces it will change gears more rarely).
