Guests: Robert Todd, emeritus professor of Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University Mike Alder, directs BYU’s Technology Transfer office which license and markets innovations made on campus. More information about technology developed at BYU is available at techtransfer.byu.edu Suppose a car, instead of having maybe 5 or 6 gears, had an infinite number that were always engaged. The transmission could slide seamlessly from one gear to the next, without that momentary interruption in power before a new gear engages. This is the vehicle transmission that BYU mechanical engineering emeritus professor Robert Todd has designed.
