Will Swarm Intelligence Drive the Future?
International Transmission Symposium weighs up autonomous driving opportunities.
It will be a while yet before drivers can relax with a newspaper while cars whisk them to their destination fully automatically. Yet for the media, ’automated or autonomous driving’ is currently by far the hottest auto-related topic. Continue reading
DHT – the new hybrid transmission category
The DHT – Dedicated Hybrid Transmission – is a new breed of hybrid transmission that was first defined and discussed at the 14th International CTI Symposium 2015 in Berlin.
The impetus came from Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ferit Küçükay, the symposium chair. Speaking before the plenum, Dr. Robert Fischer from transmission specialists AVL List defined the Dedicated Hybrid Transmission (DHT) as a new category of transmission, presented its advantages, and risked an initial forecast.

14th International CTI Symposium 2015 – Best of
The International CTI Symposium in Berlin (Germany) is the world‘s most visited annual conference on Automotive Transmission and Hybrid & Electric Drive Technology. In 2015 over 100 experts in the plenum and 16 parallel sessions provided the audience with a latest update on powertrain strategies and technical solutions.
Follow-up report on the 14th International CTI Symposium
7-10 December 2015, Berlin, Germany
The next generation of hybrid transmissions
At previous CTI Symposia, it became increasingly clear that hybrid transmissions call for an integrated view of powertrains. As a logical consequence, DHTs (Dedicated Hybrid Transmissions) were defined and discussed in public for the first time in Berlin. DHTs are a new breed of hybrid transmissions, and more than just an add-on solution. Two other forward-looking topics were also in the spotlight in Berlin: the impact of autonomous driving on transmission and drive technology, and the question of what energy forms tomorrow’s mobility needs. There is still ample scope for development – not just for electric cars, but for fossil and regeneratively produced fuels too.
CTI Transmission Symposium: Highlights and Learnings
What were the highlights and learnings from the CTI Transmission Symposium ‘Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives 2015’? Once again, transmissions expert and Chair Prof. Ferit Küçükay has summarized the key topics for you in an exclusive review. It’s the ideal way to get ready for this year’s CTI Transmission Symposium (5-8 December 2016, Berlin).
