A plea for technology-neutral thinking

Increasingly, drive development work calls for ‘hybrid’ developer qualifications that include both traditional mechanical thinking, and new methods from Big Data, Artificial Intelligence or machine learning. Two other factors are also growing in importance: an open mind for technology-neutral thinking, and a comprehensive view of where CO2 emissions actually occur during vehicle lifecycles.

Truck transmissions – an important component in tomorrow’s powertrains

Truck transmissions – an important component in tomorrow’s powertrains

To further improve efficiency, meet CO2 legislation and comply with local inner-city transport requirements, truck transmissions have a special role to play in optimizing drive trains and enabling new propulsion systems. Two aspects are particularly important: evolving conventional transmission technology, and developing the new transmissions that electric drives require. Continue reading
