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.

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.
