The Global Automotive Policy (GAP) objective is the development of advanced automotive technologies related to Mobility­as­a­Service, Next Generation Vehicle (NxGV) and Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0. NxGVs can be electric vehicles (EV) and electrical conditional automation vehicles (EAV). Technologies prototyping for NxGV with increasing levels of automation will be the clear mobility of the future. The NxGV transmission could be either an automatic transmission (AT) or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). However, the automatic gearbox and CVT are heavier and require more space, therefore they consume more energy and are difficult to install with an NxGV electric motor. In addition, the single­speed gearbox (SSGB) is lighter, but not suitable for delivering enough torque in climbing. Therefore, developing a compact and automatic energy efficient transmission is a key technology challenge for NxGV. The purpose of this study is to present a prototype of a compact and lightweight artificial adaptive fuzzy interference system (AAFIS) electromagnetic two ­ speed gearbox (AEM2SGB) for the NxGV in accordance with the GAP 2020 and IR4.0 forward policy. Research Management Centre (RMC), International Islamic University Malaysia with a research grant “Research Incentive Flagship Grant (Ref. RIF19­032­0032), financed this project. The AEM2­SGB was developed for a 3.0 kN IIUM test car using equivalent road loads and found the AEM2SGB's shift times in first gear to be 1.5 seconds with a higher torque of 530 Nm and 1.8 seconds in second gear for 110 km / h. The high­end AEM2SGB is therefore expected to reduce the weight of the NxGV drivetrain by about 46% and improve the performance of the NxGV by reducing power consumption by about 30% and extending the range by 15%. AAFIS capabilities for successful management of AEM2SGB can operate in NxGV automatic mode.
