The world of transmissions is currently navigating the tensions between increasing CO2 emissions in vehicle fleets, an explosive increase in drivetrain variants and regulatory interventions by governments. Many questions are still open and issues unresolved. That’s why companies are pursuing a variety of drivetrain strategies that will lead to a comprehensive electrification of the drivetrain, as this is the best way to be prepared for the future. The International VDI Congress “Dritev“ is one of the world’s largest automobile congresses and boasts 1,300 experts with an R&D background to exchange thoughts on current developments in the field of drivetrain and transmission. It’s the ideal place to reach out to long-known fellow experts, find new project partners and pave the way to establish new business ties. Paper submissions for the show can be submitted by October 25, 2019 at the website below. Topics include drivetrain architecture, electrical systems, operating strategies, value engineering, data/security and product development.
