Is it possible to design a dual transmission mode automobile ?

I.e. Manual & Automated mode.

If Yes, How?
If No, Why?
 

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks.

There are two Gearboxes one for Automatic, other for Manual.

Similar to selecting Petrol (Gasoline) or CNG fuel type using push buttons, there are two push buttons namely Automatic and Manual.

Clicking on Automatic push button will activate the Automatic Gearbox system and Lock the Manual Gearbox system.

Clicking on Manual push button will activate the Manual Gearbox system and Lock the Automatic Gearbox system.

Is it feasible to implement a Dual transmission mode automobile?

If No, What are the technical challenges for the same?

Absolutely, and it's actually old technology now. The car I drive is manumatic. A manumatic transmission is an automatic transmission that includes an option to switch out of automatic mode and upshift or downshift by using paddles behind the steering wheel or by using the gear lever itself.

In fact, most automatic transmissions cars already have some control of gear selection using the console or column shifter, usually to limit the transmission from shifting beyond a certain gear (allowing engine braking on downhills) and/or locking out the use of overdrive gears when towing. Manumatics enhanced such features by providing either steering wheel mounted paddle shifters or a modified shift lever, allowing the driver to enter a "manual mode" and select any available gear, usually in a sequential "upshift/downshift" manner.

Different car manufacturers use a variety of labels for their manumatic transmissions, such as 'Tiptronic', 'Geartronic', 'Touchshift', 'Sportronic', 'clutchless-manual' and others.

The automobile engine has to be modified to occupy both the transmission systems (Auto + Manual) inputs ?

Transmission is a gearbox; engine produces torque and transmission further transmits this torque to the wheels. In other words, the transmission accepts power in the form of torque that is then delivered into each drive wheel according to the press of the gas pedal.

Engine and transmission do two completely different things; therefore,the engine does not need to be modified at all, only the transmission components change.
