The post report of the US Transmission Symposium is out now!
Increasingly, transmissions are becoming part of a connected system that extends beyond the powertrain and the vehicle. So it’s not surprising the 11th CTI Symposium USA grew again with now 660 participants, three-quarters of them from North America. Transmission developers’ work is becoming more and more intricate – and with electrification growing, there is no end in sight.

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.

Efficient Drives: A Reality Check
Crude oil became significantly cheaper in 2015, not least because the USA is now an oil exporter again, and there is a global surplus. How long this cosy situation will last remains to be seen, but as the 9th CTI Symposium in Novi, Michigan (May 20-21) again showed, it has an impact on the debate over tomorrow’s drives. Even more than last year participants discussed, which and how much fuel-saving technology is needed to effectively reach fleet consumption targets like CAFE.

Together toward 54.5 mpg

In 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that by 2025, fleet consumption in the U.S. is to be reduced to 54.5 mpg. This equals a consumption level of 4.31 liters per 100 kilometers. The contribution that transmission technology can make to this target was discussed at the 8th International CTI Symposium on May 14 and 15, 2014 in Rochester. One of the issues under debate was the expectations of American drivers and changes in social parameters, which might require new approaches. …read more

Record number engineers discussed the importance of advanced technologies to meet regulations

380 representatives of industry, the supply base, government and academia gathered during the 2013 North American CTI Transmission Symposium & Exhibition at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan between May 13–16. The CTI Symposium 2013 established a record for the conference in North America but the numbers didn’t tell the whole story, however, for the conference drew from well beyond North America.
