Smart-Shift sets the industry standard for electronic shift applications and can be installed into any vehicle equipped with an automatic transmission. Smart-Shift travels from Park to Drive in 1.3 seconds! There are 2-styles of Smart-Shift: the first being incorporated into the touch display, and the second being a standalone keypad. When a drive mode key is depressed, the actuator will move the transmission to the selected gear and illuminate the LED indicator. As a safety feature, the brake must be applied in order to move to the selected gear. EMC designed this feature into Smart-Shift in 1986, before major auto manufacturers had implemented anything close to it.

The contoured standalone Smart-Shift keypad (3″H x 5.5″W x 1″D), was designed to complement the Econo-Series console system as a standalone product. Each button features center illumination and universal icons for quick, at-a-glance operation.

The Smart-Shift actuator replaces the factory gearshift mechanism. The powerful actuator positions your factory transmission cable within 1/32″ every time – no missed shift points. It conveniently mounts near the transmission in a weather resistant enclosure out of sight! The Smart-Shift actuator is included as a standard feature with the AEVIT™ 2.0 Option A.

The AEVIT™ 2.0 System is now capable of shifting in parallel with the Chrysler Pacifica shift-by-wire knob. Ever since the Pacifica was released in 2017, it has featured a shift-by-wire rotary knob controlling the transmission and gear positions; no mechanical cable links the shifter to the transmission. The knob talks on (2) CAN buses in the van, sending CAN messages to indicate which gear has been selected. Smart-Shift now mimics those CAN messages in the van as if the driver has selected a gear with the shift knob. At this time, Smart-Shift is only available with the AEVIT™ 2.0 System.

Starting in 2018, the Honda Odyssey was equipped with a push button, shift-by-wire transmission. Similar to the Chrysler Pacifica, these push buttons send CAN messages on (2) CAN buses in the van to control the transmission gear positions. The AEVIT™ System reads these messages and updates the display in real time, as well as sends its own messages when the display is pressed and used to shift.
