The CTI Symposium USA is THE place to get updated on latest technical developments and applications on automotive transmissions for conventional and alternative drives. Exchange experiences, discuss technologies and strategies with automotive experts from USA, Asia and Europe.

CTI Symposia – keeping pace with progress

CTI Symposia – keeping pace with progress

The automotive industry is developing fast – and so are our CTI Symposia. What began nearly 20 years ago as a specialist get-together for the transmission industry has now grown to become a leading Drivetrain Engineering congress and exhibition platform.

Our symposia on Intelligent, Electrified Automotive Drivetrains are specifically dedicated to the challenges and solutions of new energy vehicles.

Getting to Electric: New Designs and Processes for EV Powertrains

Smaller, cheaper, better are the keys to the next generation of electrified powertrain components. Limited driving ranges—and the concurrent range anxiety—make all-electric driving unfeasible for some car owners, while the additional cost for hybrid vehicles is a market barrier.

At the same time, the reversed torque flow during the energy recuperation phase of electric driving puts additional strain on drivetrain components.

Optimizing the efficiency of every component and/or reducing its weight is critical, while reducing costs remains essential. Continue reading
