International transmissions experts meet up for the sixth time in Shanghai

25 – 27 September 2017, Shanghai

Düsseldorf/Shanghai June 2017 – The next International CTI Symposium ’Automotive Transmissions, Hybrid & Electric Drives’ takes place on 25 – 27 September 2017, when automobile experts will gather in China for the sixth time to exchange ideas on transmission technology developments. With 8 lecture series, 60 presentations, 7 keynote speeches and the satellite exhibition ’Transmission Expo’, the event will provide a powerful framework for high-ranking Chinese and international automobile and transmission manufacturers and suppliers. The focus will rest on strategies, new components and development tools for conventional and alternative drives.

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.

DHT – the new hybrid transmission category

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.
