Will Swarm Intelligence Drive the Future?
International Transmission Symposium weighs up autonomous driving opportunities.
It will be a while yet before drivers can relax with a newspaper while cars whisk them to their destination fully automatically. Yet for the media, ’automated or autonomous driving’ is currently by far the hottest auto-related topic.
Transmission experts: “Bring it on!“
The 10th International CTI Transmission Symposium, 9-12 May 2016, USA, will examine autonomous driving intensively and in even greater depth than the Berlin Symposium of December 2015, where it first appeared on the agenda. Continue reading

DHT – the new hybrid transmission category
The DHT – Dedicated Hybrid Transmission – is a new breed of hybrid transmission that was first defined and discussed at the 14th International CTI Symposium 2015 in Berlin.
The impetus came from Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ferit Küçükay, the symposium chair. Speaking before the plenum, Dr. Robert Fischer from transmission specialists AVL List defined the Dedicated Hybrid Transmission (DHT) as a new category of transmission, presented its advantages, and risked an initial forecast.

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.
