International VDI Congress Drivetrain for Vehicles 2012

(June 19-20, 2012)Friedrichshafen, Germany. Sustainable driving, lower CO2 consumption, a paradigm shift towards electromobility: the automotive industry has some difficult demands to satisfy. Vehicle transmission developers and users will be gathering at this important industry meeting-point now in its tenth incarnation. The conference will be directed by  Dr.-Ing. Hans-Joerg Domian, director of new products and methods, design tasks, ZF Friedrichshafen AG. Opening papers tackle the subjects of the future of driveline development, potential CO2 savings and the role of electrification' as well as electromobility. Alongside future-oriented transmission components for electric and hybrid vehicles, the program will also include current developments in the fields of double-clutch and automatic transmissions, manual transmissions and all-wheel drives, efficiency, components, materials and production engineering as well as clutches and operating strategies. The machines section is entirely new: here attendees can learn about, for example, technical trends in agricultural machines, new developments in construction machinery drives, infinitely variable power take-off drives or improvements in the ease of gear shifting.
