Welcome Address

The automotive industry is restructuring around topics of zero-emission mobility, digitalization, artificial intelligence, connectivity, automation and mobility services. Huge investments are made and are accompanied by many uncertainties in terms of market development, politics and the reduced global production volume, especially in China, which sets the pace for electromobility, with almost all automotive groups now depending on its economic success.

Due to the electrochemical limits of the energy density of battery cells and therefore the limited vehicle range, HEV and PHEV drive systems with ICE, but also the conventional drives still have a long future ahead of them. At the same time, however, the automotive industry with its electric vehicles has to become profitable without incentives at a sufficiently high production volume in the medium term.

OUR 2020 CTI SYMPOSIA IN CHINA AND GERMANY WILL TAKE THESE DEVELOPMENTS INTO ACCOUNT AND ADDRESS THE FOLLOWING TOPICS:

  • Market-specific constraints and impacts on drivetrain and transmission development
  • ICV, HEV, BEV, and FCEV drive concepts, including drivetrain topologies, transmissions, starting devices, mechanical and electrical components, energy storage devices
  • Oil, lubrication
  • Powertrain integration and connectivity, safety and security, operating strategies, impact of automated driving on the drivetrain
  • Software development, artificial intelligence, machine learning, usage of big data
  • Manufacturing technologies, production and lightweight design

 

The CTI SYMPOSIA are intended for all system and components suppliers, manufacturers of passenger cars and commercial vehicles, engineering service providers and software developers, as well as market specialists. We look forward to your presentation proposals for our 9th CTI SYMPOSIUM in Shanghai and the 19th CTI SYMPOSIUM in Berlin

 

Best regards

Prof. Dr Ferit Küçükay
Chairman of the Symposium
