Follow-up report, 16th International CTI Symposium – Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives
4 – 7 December 2017, Berlin, Germany
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.
