What Drives Will Automobiles Use in 2030?

What Drives Will Automobiles Use in 2030?

14th International CTI Symposium Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives,
7 – 10 December 2015, Estrel Hotel, Berlin

Transmission and drive developers are working harder than ever to reduce consumption and C02 levels cost effectively, and to meet the challenges of integration, connectivity and automation. To achieve emission regulation targets, conventional drives are continuously being optimized; various levels of electrification are a must – and so is the wide range of transmissions and drives needed for tailor-made solutions in specific markets and vehicle segments. How do we respond to these deep changes in the automobile industry? At the 14th International CTI Symposium Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives (7 – 10 December 2015), top international experts will be discussing exactly that in 110 specialist lectures and 16 series of parallel lectures. The symposium chair is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ferit Küçükay (Director Institute for Automotive Engineering, TU Braunschweig). The specialist exhibition Transmission Expo accompanies the main program on December 8 and 9.

Follow-up Report, 9th International CTI Symposium USA

Follow-up Report, 9th International CTI Symposium USA – Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives, 20-21 May 2015, Novi, Michigan

Efficient Drives: A Reality Check
Crude oil became significantly cheaper in 2015, not least because the USA is now an oil exporter again, and there is a global surplus. How long this cosy situation will last remains to be seen, but as the 9th CTI Symposium in Novi, Michigan (May 20-21) again showed, it has an impact on the debate over tomorrow’s drives. Even more than last year participants discussed, which and how much fuel-saving technology is needed to effectively reach fleet consumption targets like CAFE.

9th International CTI Symposium + Transmission Expo
Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives
18 – 21 May 2015, Novi, Michigan, USA

Düsseldorf/Novi, 8 April 2015. Upcoming American regulations for the average C02 emissions of auto manufacturers’ fleets – known in the USA as Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) – foresee a reduction in emissions from light duty (i.e., passenger) vehicles from 250g C02/mile in 2016 to 163g C02/mile in 2025. Using new developments in conventional drives, and by electrifying drives with electric motors and power electronics, the aim is to reduce emissions with no loss of comfort or safety. The 9th International CTI Symposium Automotive Transmission, HEV and EV Drives (18 – 21 May 2015, Novi, Michigan) will present the latest developments on this topic and provide perspectives for the coming years. In more than 70 specialist lectures, renowned international experts from the USA, Asia and Europe will discuss the technologies and strategies that are shaping our automotive future. The 9th International CTI Symposium will be flanked by the specialist exhibition Transmission Expo. Continue reading
