follow-up-report-2016RDE is driving electrification
Two trends left a clear mark on this year’s 10th CTI symposium USA. Real Driving Emissions (RDE) is infl uencing development even sooner than experts anticipated just a year ago. And the new transmission category DHT (Dedicated Hybrid Transmission) is being discussed intensively as an alternative to add-on hybrids. Interest in the CTI Symposium was up yet again, with a participant headcount of 590 in this anniversary year.

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.
