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
Innovations in Hybrid Drives: Lateral thinkers and innovators wanted!
When it comes to hybrid drives, experts agree there is no sign of a one-size-fits-all solution yet. At the moment, numerous architectures and topographies are up for discussion. Continue reading
Compare up-to-date transmission concepts and prototypes at the CTI Test Drive
The CTI Test Drive at the ADAC Center of Driving Safety Berlin-Brandenburg/Linthe is part of every CTI Symposium since 14 years and has always been fully booked.
The test drives give you the opportunity to experience latest transmission technologies in real life but also vehicles with alternative drive trains. Cars can still be registered. Read more…
Planned issue on Electric Mobility: The steep climb from vision to reality
Electric mobility is the hottest – and most controversial – discussion topic in the automotive industry. Continue reading
Gear shifting in modern automobiles: from intuition to algorithms
Every automobile has to change gears, be it with a manual, automatic or dual clutch transmission. But which criteria drive our individual shift decisions, and how can we optimize the process technically? At the 16th CTI Symposium Berlin, that’s exactly what one lecture series will be looking into.
Hybridisation via 48 V systems: The smartest way to reduce automotive CO2 emissions?
The only practical way for automobiles to meet strict CO2 reduction targets is through incremental powertrain electrification. But which concepts are most promising, and how do you get innovations into production fast? This is just one of the hot topics high calibre experts will be discussing at the 16th International CTI Symposium Berlin (4-7 December). Continue reading
