I'll disagree and say that, yes, the shifting has been automated, but an AMT still uses a friction plate(s), a pressure plate(s) and gears with synchronizers, hallmarks of a traditional MT.

Call it what it is; an AMT, not an AT.

In my industry, we have to make this distinction between traditional MTs, traditional ATs, and MTs that shift on their own.
