With the advent of electric cars we are going to need transmissions that weigh a lot less. The way to accomplish this is the frictionless magnetic clutch transmission. Electro Magnets are activated in a gradient mode to hold one plate next to the other. Once both plates are turning at the same speed, a caliper locks them together and the magnet function is released.
This system would weigh a lot less and there would be less wear and tear and less wasted energy.
